Great views and solitude in winter
lut 2021
Great shelling and maritime views from this westernmost tip of Oak Island, where Lockwood Folly River on one side of the Point empties into the south-facing Atlantic on the other.

Small public parking lot with access to short paths across the dunes lead to your choice of oceanfront or soundside adventure. Watch your the time, so you don’t get caught on the flats when the tide turns.

We visited the Pointe in winter and didn’t swim: however, we learned currents here are strong as the two bodies of water intersect. Locals also tell us sunsets along the Point are breathtaking.

Splashing and hermit crab fun for kids
wrz 2020 • Dla rodziny
Our family went mid-day and there were only 2 or 3 parking spots open. There was lots of space to spread out. People can get wet on the ocean or sound side so it gives parents options depending on kids’ ages. I wish we’d brought our kayaks down. It looked like a great place for my kids (ages 8 & 9) to practice without heavy current. My kids found tons of hermit crabs and and had fun trying to catch bait fish.

Great Place to Watch the Sunset

Located at the far west end of OKI, there is a small public parking lot. Nice view of the sunset here. Also nice beach to hunt for sea shells. Great way to end the day,

nice view

a little different than the rest of Oak island beaches but nothing too extraordinary. Not a must see in other words? Shells not any different than the rest of the island. some nasty putrid water near the river bank.

A man at the local Lowe’s foods recommended. We’ve been coming every summer for years and didn’t know about it. So we decided to check it out.

It’s beautiful. Easy small parking lot with plenty of signs to find.

Recommend flip flops you can take off easily as walking towards the point is all sand. Lots of sand, great views of the inlet and the ocean.

We saw a bunch of crabs and even a snail.

Stay and play in the water as some did. Later in the day, folks fish here.

Beautiful view at sunset
cze 2019 • Dla rodziny
Our family enjoyed a stroll on the beach at sunset. Saw lots of folks walking their dogs, looking for shells, fishing, and just enjoying the beautiful day. Parking lot was small, but we were fortunate to get an empty spot. We plan to bring our beach chairs next visit in July and enjoy a day on the beach. It was less crowded than the other beaches we had seen that day. It’s a bit remote but worth the visit.

Great sunset and sunrise location.
maj 2019 • Dla rodziny
We came to the point to watch the sunset and it was well worth it. Not crowded and we had an unobstructed view. We also came back the next morning for the sunrise over Sheep Island and were impressed as well.
