Ocean Isle Beach is one of the most popular beach destinations along the Southeastern North Carolina coast. Both the island and the mainland of Ocean Isle Beach draw families to enjoy everything from lazy beach days, rooftop dining and drinks at the local restaurants, miniature golf, and deep sea fishing adventures. Many travelers come from hundreds of miles away for just a week of this North Carolina gem.
The small town feel of Ocean Isle Beach can be experienced in the many events that are hosted each year. From the Annual Oyster Festival that showcases cooking contests, live music and activities for the entire family to the Summer Concert Series that is free to the public on Friday evenings, the residents and visitors alike are able to take advantage of the beautiful scenery and the great community.
For those that live an active lifestyle Ocean Isle Beach is a host for many road races, cycling clubs, golf courses, an outdoor adventure park, and of course features five miles of beautiful beaches that you can explore. The town has also invested in a beautiful recreation facility that has tennis courts, play grounds, an outdoor amphitheatre, and several other sports fields that are open for public use. As a barrier island Ocean Isle Beach has the charm of a true beach town but the close proximity to both Myrtle Beach and Wilmington make it very appealing to many as a full time residence.
