With a population of nearly 7,000 year round and 30-50,000 in the summer season, there are plenty of reasons to come for the summer or stay for the entire year. As many North Carolina coastal towns do, Oak Island is rooted in its rich history and breathtaking water views. Take a tour of Fort Caswell, built in 1838, or relax on one of the 65 public accesses across 10 miles of beach.
