Separated from the mainland by the Intracoastal Waterway, the beach town of Oak Island is lined with beaches while fishermen gather at the long Ocean Crest Pier.


Within the town there are 65 public beach accesses and miles of unspoiled, sandy shoreline with fishing docks, piers and boat ramps, making it a mecca for anglers and sailors. In particular, the Intracoastal Waterway and Davis Canal are popular spots to head out on the water.

There is also a golf course, eight park baseball and football fields, a dog park and plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes.

Outdoors & Adventure

Golfers can enjoy a game at the town’s golf course in South Harbor Village or one of the other public courses on offer on Oak Island.

The Oak Island Nature Center has trails, plus displays on fossils and native animals. To the east, Oak Island Lighthouse has sweeping views over Caswell Beach and Bald Head Island. The lighthouse was the the last lighthouse to be built in North Carolina and was completed in 1958. Sitting 169ft above the water line, the lights can be seen for 16 miles. The whole lighthouse is 153ft high and stands on a small hill. Climbing to the top is only for the fit as instead of a spiral staircase, there are a series of ladders with 131 rungs! Tours to the top of the lighthouse are available all year round by appointment but only for children and adults aged over nine years old. Bookings should be made at least two weeks in advance.
