Flash Sweep – beach

Meet at the 52nd East beach access for a 5-min. beach sweep.

Nature Novels @ OKI Nature Center
Jul 19 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Cherish memories with more than just a photo; Nature journaling is a great way for children to connect with their environment and share their experiences. Oak Island’s lush paradise allows island residents, and guests, to enjoy an area rich with animals and plant life. Encourage the creative writer in your family as participants write and draw their observations of our island’s natural landscapes and their inhabitants.

*Folders and paper will be available. However, children may bring their own journals.*

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

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?
