Ocean Isle Beach, Gem of The Brunswick Islands
Let’s talk about what inspired your Ocean Isle Beach vacation in the first place: our beautiful seven miles of undisturbed beaches. Whether you decide to visit on- or off-season, our environment is perfect for any vacation. A stroll along the surf in North Carolina’s mild winter temperatures, when the beaches are almost vacant, can be the perfect addition to a romantic getaway. During the summer, let go of stress and get in the water! On average, the waters here are 10 degrees warmer than the Outer Banks areas. Our surf is gentle and generally without strong currents, perfect for a lazy day in the sun after just a short walk from your Ocean Isle Beach vacation rental.
Great beaches aside, what really distinguishes Ocean Isle Beach from other barrier island towns? Maybe it's the system of canals that run throughout the island, connecting virtually every home to the Intracoastal Waterway. This uncommon feature makes Ocean Isle Beach perfect for boat owners, since most homes are equipped with a dock. We offer canal front rentals especially for you boaters. And if you don't particularly want to be right on the beach, we offer ocean view rentals, second row rentals and mid-island rental homes.
We also have over 100 Ocean Isle Beach Condo Rentals with a variety of community amenities for you to enjoy.
You may drive or you may fly into Ocean Isle Beach. The Ocean Isle Beach Municipal Airport is a full service FBO modern facility, opened in 2008 for your convenience. Oibaviation.com.
Ocean Isle Beach Still Has A Small Town Flavor
Located between the tourist mecca of Myrtle Beach and the historic charm of Wilmington, little is known about Ocean Isle's early years, when it belonged to a variety of people, none of whom had a clear direction for the island. Until the 1950s, the island was little more than a family getaway for those who owned sprawling expanses of oceanfront vacation property. In 1953, Odell Williamson purchased the entire island, incorporating it into the town of Ocean Isle Beach in 1959.
Since then, the island community has preserved its small-town flavor, choosing not to join the ranks of commercialized resorts dotting the Atlantic coast. The quaint village of neo-traditional clapboard houses still has an air of the 1950s, and that suits the residents just fine. They are proud to be the antithesis of the wall-to-wall condominiums that have taken over so many other island towns.
They're proud, too, to be known for the best beaches on the North Carolina coast, where the warm waters of the Atlantic combine with a wide, sloping shoreline and where mandated public access is located every 500 feet.
But our island isn't too quiet - at least it doesn't have to be. There is plenty to get you up and out of your Ocean Isle Beach vacation rental-- besides those obvious activities of lounging on the beach and fishing. At least 30 golf courses are nearby, and dozens more appear as you near Myrtle Beach to the south. Waterway and oceanfront dining at sunset, shopping in interesting little boutiques and day trips to historic sites are all enjoyable ways to get more fun into your vacation time.
Isn't that why you came to the beach in the first place?
