With 11 miles of oceanfront sandy beaches, we have enough room for you to enjoy the Carolina sunshine and white sand while maintaining a comfortable six feet or more distance. All of our beaches are free with free parking in over 70 access points. All of the Oak Island beaches are Southern-facing, same as the Florida Keys. You can salute the sunrise and sunset from the same spot. Living in St James Plantation will find your toes in the sand in just minutes.
