This 12-mile stretch of barrier island just south of Southport is graced by live oaks and yaupon trees. Oak Island boasts three piers and a marina to host all types of water related fun.
Uniquely situated along one of the "scalloped arcs" on the southeastern shore, Oak Island has a complex coastal ecosystem with areas of salt marsh, freshwater wetlands and maritime forests. The Island is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna.
Special visitors include Atlantic sea turtles, which return every year to nest and lay eggs. In fact, the Town recently completed the Sea Turtle Habitat Restoration Project to care for the beloved residents!
The island-the largest town in Brunswick County--has more than 5,000 residents, although those numbers swell to over 40,000 during peak season. The Town, conscious of its attraction to visitors, offers 65 beach access points, a championship golf course and a nice variety of seafood and other restaurants.
This barrier island-one of three islands that, along with Ocean Isle and Sunset Beach are known as the South Brunswick Islands--spans only 1/2 mile at its widest point, and its 3.0 miles of land area accommodates 798 year around residents. So as you might imagine, ocean-side living is front and center on Holden Beach, where you will see everything from spectacular mansions to weathered bungalows. Fishing, boating, unspoiled beaches and pristine water makes this a beach-lovers paradise!
Watch the shrimp boats bring in a fresh harvest or catch your own in this beach lover's paradise. Here life is tranquil and unhurried, absent of crowds, flashing lights and tall buildings.
