Ocean Isle Beach is a small resort town that is big on amenities for its residents. Ocean Isle is located in the southern corner of North Carolina halfway between Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC.
Called the "Gem of the Brunswick Islands", Ocean Isle is a favorite beach destination and a treasured place to call home. Charming coastal homes situated along the Atlantic Coastal Waterway and beachfront homes on a newly restored beach offer attractive living.
With a year-round population of just over 500, neighbors stroll the sidewalks and visit on wide porches throughout the year in a mild four season climate. Natural beauty is bountiful here with winding indigo waterways, native ponds, natural woodlands, and a pristine beach. Because Ocean Isle faces south and the beach runs east to west, both sunrises and sunsets are dramatic.
Although Ocean Isle has no "downtown" residents find what they need in the way of goods and services in small nearby towns like Sunset Beach and Shallotte. Of course plenty of fresh seafood restaurants and other good places to eat are available with lovely waterfront views. The beach has a fishing pier and boat launching facility. The town boasts a new $3 million dollar park and great golfing is around every corner. The local Silver Coast Winery has tasting rooms and accommodations for events, and Ocean Isle proudly hosts an annual oyster festival every October.
For those times when residents are ready for a day trip, historic Wilmington, NC and exciting Myrtle Beach, SC are both about a 45-minute drive away. Weekend getaways can be spent in the state capital in Raleigh, the metropolis of Charlotte, or the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Real Estate trends lean toward in-state retirees and northerners seeking a milder climate and a lower cost of living than in the northeastern states. The median home price in the area is $265,000.
Although Ocean Isle is known to attract retirees, there are families with children scattered about the Brunswick County area. They are served by 19 local public schools. Students in North Carolina are given the choice to attend Charter Schools if desired.
