On Sunset Beach you can find whole sand dollars in the morning and view the stars in the evening at the Ingram Planetarium. You can watch ships enter the Cape Fear River from Caswell Beach while collecting angel wing shells or driftwood in the shadow of the Oak Island Lighthouse. Oak Island with its lovely parks, canoe and kayak friendly areas and recreation trails, is an ideal haven for active nature lovers, while Holden Beach has long been known as the top spot as a fisherman’s paradise.
