The Ocean. World-Renowned Seafood. Turtle Watching. Fishing charters. Great Weather. Golf. Shopping. Tennis. Swimming. What do all these things have in common? Survey says… Ocean Isle Beach NC. My wife and I originally went there for our Honeymoon 14 years ago. We fell in love with it and go back each year to our luxury beach house which we also use a beach house rental. This year’s vacation we took the kids to the new Hard Rock Park in Myrtle Beach which is right down the road. The park is excellent I have recommended it to everyone I know. One of the great things about Ocean Isle NC is that everything is not over run with tourist and trash yet you are still so close to so much. The beach is beautiful and there is nothing like seeing your little girl running big eyed after seeing a bunch of baby turtles or finding a star fish. Our house on the beach is beautiful. We have a private pool in the back yard while being just steps away from beach front access street. Next year we plan to have a family reunion here which is very exciting.
