Whether you are on vacation, getting away to your second home, or live here full time, that hometown sense of nostalgia is present along each of the 20 square miles of Oak Island. The Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway run parallel to each other and stretch across the 12 mile-long island. 


Find your stretch of sand and enjoy a sunrise or sunset from any of the 10 miles of beachfront. Getting there is never a problem with over 100 free public accesses to the beach and Intracoastal Waterway. Your accessibility to all of Oak Island’s natural beauty is more than any of the other coastal towns in North Carolina. From the public boat launches, two fishing piers, waterway parks, kayak launch, scenic walkways, to the golf, fine and casual dining, established retail and small local shopping, boutique hotels, and more, it's no wonder the year round population of 8,500 residents continues to grow exponentially each year. Even with the nearly 50,000 visitors bustling around during the summer, this charming southern beach town keeps its traditional, quiet charm throughout the entire year.
