If you’re looking for a fun day in the sun, Oak Island Beach is where you want to be! The Town of Oak Island, located on the southernmost tip of North Carolina’s beautiful shoreline, features almost 10 miles of beachfront along the 12-mile-long Oak Island, which is how it got its name. The island is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the south and the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) to the north.
With its southern-facing beach, beachgoers may enjoy spectacular vistas of both sunrise and sunset over the ocean from the same stretch of sand! Also, with more than 100 free public accesses to the beach and the ICW, Oak Island offers greater accessibility to our greatest natural resource than any other coastal town in North Carolina!
Oak Island Beach has 65 public access locations, 40 nature viewing, and fishing locations, six boat-launch areas, and four fishing/crab docks! You truly cannot go wrong when you choose to spend a day in the area. There is something to do for everyone.
One of the main attractions on Oak Island is the Oak Island Lighthouse. The present-day lighthouse stands 139 feet tall and was completed in 1958. It is the second tallest brick lighthouse in the United States and is an active aid to navigation. The lighthouse grounds are open to the public daily from 9 am to 5 pm, and admission is free. The Oak Island Lighthouse is located in Caswell Beach, North Carolina, near the mouth of the Cape Fear River. On the east side of Oak Island on Brunswick County’s Brunswick Peninsula, it overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and sits next to the Oak Island Coast Guard Station.
If you’re organizing a wedding or any other big event, 801 Ocean, the Town of Oak Island’s finest seaside location, is the perfect site for both weddings and social gatherings! This inviting event space can accommodate up to 200 people and is open all year; right on the beachfront next to the famous Oak Island Pier.
The Town of Oak Island operates 801 Ocean, which has a 1,750-square-foot banquet room and an additional adaptable event area. The rental includes tables, chairs, and set-up. Events may be personalized in a number of ways to make them more distinctive. Audio-visual services are available for every event.
