Beautiful pier!! Great fishing or just to take a walk and enjoy the awesome views. Had a fun time relaxing and talking to some of the locals.

This pier has been run down for years and had the end wash away in the last hurricane. The Town finally has insurance and grant money to rebuild, but is stuck in contracting and permitting delays. They may be able to start later this year...More

We enjoyed walking this pier at night and talking with the local fisherman. It was romantic and also educational to hear about the fish caught there.

A great place to go to fish or look at the ocean until it was declared unusable due to storm damage from Hurricane Matthew. It is owned by Oak Island and the rumor is that it will be repaired/replaced this fall/winter (2017).

Oak Island Pier is closed at this time. Last year's hurricane took its toll on the pier. It is not safe. There are plans to repair it that are beginning. I rated it 5 as it was delightful to go on it just sight seeing...More

Most of the pier is now gone due to hurricane Andrew. Not sure you can even walk or fish on it anymore.

Great view but its closed for repair. It was a good fishing spot not to good for swimming though because the sharks love it also, swim away from the pier.

Really it's just a pier. Walking to it was more fun for the family than the actual pier. If prefer going to Southport in the morning to sit on the pier there. If you don't make it to the Oak Island Pier don't beat yourself...More

Pier is closed because it's condemned. Shark exhibit isn't worth the required 50 cents. Beach is poorly cared for, and was very crowded. Public bathrooms were three Port-A-Potties that were in deplorable condition and should have been condemned, too.
