Picture Perfect in Any Season....


Welcome to the Southern Cape Fear Coast, the southeastern section of the North Carolina's Brunswick Islands, where you will find everything you need to make your vacation or home "Picture Perfect in any Season".   We are not the typical tourist destination but rather a community at the coast that welcomes visitors.  Our community includes over 28 miles of beautiful beaches on Bald Head Island, Caswell Beach and Oak Island; historic river town of Southport; natural spring lakes in Boiling Spring Lakes; and waterway communities of St. James and Sunset Harbor.

We invite you to explore our area not only during this event but anytime.  We have numerous festivals and events throughout the year including the Chamber organized events -, Christmas by the Sea Parade the first Saturday in December, U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament or the Southport-Oak Island Area Restaurant Week (Forks, Corks & Kegs) in October and the largest festival in the area is the N.C. 4th of July Festival.  Runners may want to check out Southport-Oak Island Kiwanis 5k Easter Weekend or Go Jump in the Lake 5k & 1 mile Fun Run Sunday before Labor Day.  

For an information guide about our area contact the Southport-Oak Island Area Chamber of Commerce at or stop by the Chamber's Welcome Center at 4433 Long Beach Road, Southport.
