Ocean Isle Beach, NC

Ocean Isle Beach Almost straddling the North Carolina, South Carolina state line, Ocean Isle Beach is one of North Carolina's southernmost barrier islands, and a favorite of retirees looking for that idyllic beach town lifestyle.

Just over seven miles long, this island spent much of its history belonging to a conglomeration of people, none of who really had a direction for the island in mind. Until the 1950s, the island was little more than a family getaway for those who owned the sprawling expanses of ocean front property. In 1953 the island was purchased in its entirety by Odell Williamson, and incorporated into the town of Ocean Isle Beach in 1959.

Since its incorporation, the island community has made a concentrated effort not to become like so many of the other island resort communities up and down the Atlantic coast. This unique village of neo-traditional clapboard houses has retained its beach atmosphere that brought throngs of vacationers to the area fifty years ago. The island is proud to be the antithesis of the wall-to-wall condominiums that have taken over so many other island towns.

The tiny island town is also proud to be known to have the best beaches on the North Carolina coast. The warm seasonal waters of the Atlantic combines with a wide, gently sloping shoreline, featuring mandated public access every 500 feet, making Ocean Isle Beach ideal for beach lovers of all ages.

Besides the beaches, what most distinguishes Ocean Isle Beach from other barrier island communities is the system of canals that run throughout the island, connecting almost every home to the Intracoastal Waterway. This feature makes the island an ideal home for boat owners, as most homes are equipped with a dock.

Besides lounging on the pristine beaches and partaking in one of the many water sports the island's location affords, there are at least a dozen golf courses within a 20 minute drive, along with popular shopping and dining alternatives not found in the locally owned businesses on the island.
