Picturesque coastal community, where the pace of life is calm, the sunrise to sunset waterfront vistas are magnificent, the seashore is inviting, and the seasonal climate is always refreshing!
This quiet, well protected, barrier island is nestled between Myrtle Beach, SC, and Wilmington, NC, and is surrounded by the Cape Fear River, the Intracoastal Waterway, and the Atlantic Ocean.
The wonderful weather invites everyone to enjoy year-round activities, such as: pleasure and sport boating, aided by numerous public boat ramps and marinas; or exploring with canoes and kayaks, rentals are available! Try your luck fishing at the local piers or deep-sea charter fishing; playing championship golf in a coastal setting at the Oak Island Golf 18-hole, full-service, golf course; hiking, biking, and picnicing around the island; taking advantage of the many parks, (including a new “skate board” park); playing at the popular Recreation Center; or swimming, sun-bathing, surfcasting, or just taking a long walk on the beach!
You are near the quaint fishing village of Southport, and the seaside communities of Shallotte, Ocean Isle Beach (home of the Silver Coast Winery), Sunset Beach and Holden Beach, and only a 45 minute drive to the bustling city of Wilmington, with its scenic historical tours, riverfront restaurants, sports arenas, local art, and antebellum charm.
