Area Amenities Collage. The Cottages at Ocean Isle Beach, NC.

Nestled along the Atlantic Ocean, the town of Ocean Isle Beach is located about halfway between historic Wilmington, NC, and lively Myrtle Beach, SC. Fortunate residents and seasonal visitors treasure the seven-mile stretch of pristine shoreline, and the relaxing family beach atmosphere of the barrier island, the Intracoastal Waterway, and the mainland.

Water-based and beachside activities are the most popular pastimes here, thanks to our mild temperatures and ocean water that is, on average, 10 degrees warmer than on the Outer Banks. Museums, shops and restaurants are plentiful locally and in the surrounding area, as are some of the best golf courses in the South.
