Southern Living named Ocean Isle Beach the South’s Best Tiny Town in 2018. Locals agree Ocean Isle Beach is Paradise Found. At the center of the 7-mile island, coming over the bridge Causeway Drive ends at the Ocean Isle Beach Pier. This 968’ wooden pier has stood as a landmark of the island since it was built in 1957 by Odell and Virginia Williamson. OIB Pier management values family tradition, honors its history, and works hard to maintain the longstanding sentimental traditions of the pier yet carefully updates the complex for the modern-day tourist.
The fun begins at the pier house entrance with a front door historic photograph of the pier house 60 years ago. Come on in to see your OIB Pier today, and let us help you continue to make lots of summer fun in the sun memories!
