Ocean Isle Beach: The gem of the Brunswick Islands

This small seaside town between Myrtle Beach and Wilmington along the Atlantic Ocean, really packs a punch. As a random fact, Ocean Isle Beach is known as the Gem of the Brunswick Islands, and it’s true, as this jewel offers so much for your entire family to enjoy. Besides seemingly endless water activities and their famous North Carolina Oyster Festival, it’s no wonder Ocean Isle Beach vacation rentals tend to book up early. You can go stargazing, shopping, and visit museums, or simply enjoy that beautiful 7-mile white sand beach. You can even take a haunted tour, if you dare.

Catch the relaxed seaside vibe in Ocean Isle Beach

Fishermen, unite! Catch your fill along the Intracoastal Waterway, the pier at Ferry Landing Park, or head out onto the Atlantic for some deep sea adventure. And speaking of seafood, be sure not to miss the popular North Carolina Oyster Festival held annually every October. Rent a bike and meander along the quaint shops and restaurants of Ocean Isle Beach, or stop and enjoy live music during their free summer concert series. Plus, Ingram Planetarium offers stargazing, or you can seek out the somewhat quirky Kindred Spirit Mailbox, where you can send off your hopes and dreams!

Ocean Isle Beach may be small, but it's big on fun!

What it may lack in size, Ocean Isle Beach makes up for with tons of things to see. Besides it’s gorgeous, award-winning 7-mile stretch of sandy white beach, you can hang (and fish) with the locals along Ocean Isle Beach Pier. Check out the dioramas and the touch tank at the Museum of Coastal Carolina, or let your little ones burn off some energy at Ocean Isle Beach Park. Visit a winery, or take a ghost walk around the area’s haunted past, but only if you're brave. The state's oldest lighthouse on Bald Head Island is 41 miles east.

Ocean Isle Beach forecast: 100% chance of fun!

Everyone loves to visit Ocean Isle Beach during the quintessential summer season when temperatures range from the mid to upper 80s. But spring and fall are the best times to visit as the weather is cooler, and you’ll find lower prices when booking Ocean Isle Beach vacation rentals. Spring is also a popular time for wildlife viewing, and the same with fishing in the fall. During winter, temperatures can dip down into the upper 40s, but there’s generally just an inch of snow during the season, so pack your jacket and you'll be good to go.
