I love walking on the beach on Oak Island! I live here in Brunswick county and especially enjoy the beach when it's either shoulder season or off season. The weather is nice here most of the time, so there's just the colder days of winter that aren't days I would choose to go beach walking. It's the perfect place to... More

Plenty of beach access locations/entry points with no charge for parking. Beaches are clean and not too crowded, families...many secluded areas, friendly beachcombers.

Actually took a golf cart to the beach at 10pm last night & enjoyed sitting there in peace watching the surf & looking at the... More

The beach is many things to many people and Oak Island can satisfy most everyone! As for myself I want to put away the phone, email, and business of life and really relax and nowhere beats Caswell Beach. Dollar for dollar the best value in America or at least on the east coast. Rented a beach cottage right on the... More
