Things to Do in Ocean Isle Beach

Ocean Isle Beach is renowned for its family-friendly atmosphere. The town is relatively small and peaceful, making it a great destination for families seeking a relaxed beach vacation without the crowds and hustle and bustle of larger beach towns. You can enjoy all your favorite water sports and beach activities without the traffic and crowds. 

There's no shortage of outdoor activities in Ocean Isle Beach. You can enjoy boating, kayaking, paddleboarding, and jet skiing on the Intracoastal Waterway, which runs parallel to the island. Golf enthusiasts can tee off at several nearby golf courses, like The Links at Brick Landing.

The Ocean Isle Beach Pier is a popular spot for both fishing and sightseeing. You can try your hand at fishing or simply take a leisurely stroll along the pier while enjoying the panoramic views of the coastline. The pier also has a gift shop and a restaurant called The Pier Grill.

While Ocean Isle Beach is a small town, it offers a variety of dining options, ranging from seafood restaurants to casual cafes. Check out Causeway Cafe for casual dining and fresh take-out or delivery, or Sharky's for a fun family night out with a menu of seafood, pasta, pizza, and more in a waterfront setting. The town also hosts live music events, art shows, and outdoor movie nights during the summer season.

One attractive feature of Ocean Isle Beach is its proximity to Sunset Beach, another beautiful coastal town. A short drive over the Sunset Beach Bridge takes you to a serene and less-developed beach area with a famous pier.
