The Brunswick County coast hosts six beautiful beaches stretching across five barrier islands with several charming coastal towns and neighborhoods along the way. Follow along as I continue to find the Joy of Home on the gorgeous Brunswick Islands and their mainland.
Ahh…Oak Island. It’s why we moved to the Brunswick Islands. The nostalgia I feel waking up in this wondrous place warms my heart every day. The salty air, the uncrowded beaches, kayaking on the Davis Canal, casting a line off the pier, along with everything I need in my daily life is just moments away. Will you find the Joy of Home on Oak Island too? Let’s find out.
The 8-mile long barrier island of Holden Beach is bound by the Intracoastal Waterway, Shallotte Inlet, and Lockwood Folly Inlet. With a population of just under 700 people the small town charm of this sea goers island continues to earn the distinction earned by National Geographic Traveler as one of the “best family beaches in the country” year after year. Grab your bike, board, or boat and hit the beach or waterway for a full day of fun in the sun.
Lovely coastal neighborhoods sit among the 12,000 acres of subtropical beauty on the island of Bald Head. 10,000 of those acres have been left untouched and host the beach, marsh and maritime forest preserves. A two mile long journey or 20 minute passenger ride on the ferry across the Cape Fear River from the Deep Point Marina in Southport leads you to the many adventures that Bald Head Island has to offer.
