Welcome to the Town of Oak Island
a family-friendly beach community with a small-town atmosphere


NOTICE: The US Army Corps of Engineers’ Wilmington Harbor/Sand Placement Project is working our eastern town limits. This is a navigation/dredging project by the Corps, but beach-quality dredged sand will be placed on the beach in Caswell Beach and the east end of Oak Island. The Town is not able to provide a daily schedule of where crews will be working. Please check the Corps of Engineers’ FAQ page for more information and a map to track the project’s progress — click here to see the Corps of Engineers’ page. 


The Town boasts 65 public beach accesses on miles of sandy beaches, as well as fishing docks and piers, boat ramps and many other access points to the Intracoastal Waterway and the Davis Canal, making it the perfect location for fishing, boating, kayaking and other water activities. The Town also has a municipal golf course and eight parks, ranging from a fishing T at the west end of the island to a large park on the mainland complete with baseball and football fields. There is a skate park, a dog park, a cabana on the oceanfront with an observation deck and plenty of places to find a quiet spot to relax and enjoy the view. Area businesses, like piers and marinas, restaurants and ice cream shops, also help make vacationers feel welcome while catering to full-time residents.

The Town covers much of the island and includes areas on the mainland around both bridges, such as the golf course community of South Harbour Village. There are also thousands of undeveloped acres near the Swain’s Cut Bridge.

We hope you enjoy finding out more about the Town of Oak Island, and if you’re not already here, we look forward to seeing you soon! Looking for information on accommodations and local businesses?
