See Oak Island Lighthouse

Oak Island Lighthouse towers over its surroundings in Caswell Beach on Oak Island on the southern coast of North Carolina.

Stay at a cute cottage

Oak Island vacation rentals include oceanfront homes and those found on the Intracoastal Waterway side of the island.

Enjoy the Beach

There are 65 public beach accesses and 79 shared access pathways, with parking spots available at many of them.

Catch Sunset 

We highly recommend heading down to The Point for a sunset. It’s just across the water from Holden Beach and home to copious shells.

Enjoy the Piers

There are two piers on Oak Island. We love taking a long walk on these piers, looking back at the beautiful beaches, and keeping an eye out for dolphins!

You’d better get to Kai Joe’s as soon as they open because everyone knows about this Tex Mex restaurant! It's a favorite with tourists and locals alike.
