The only souvenirs available at Caswell Beach are the shells collected on quiet low tide walks along this beautiful shore…

Caswell Beach is a four mile stretch of long, sandy beaches located at the Eastern end of Oak Island at the mouth of the Cape Fear River. It is the least populated of the Brunswick County beaches.

Deep dunes and sprawling cottages line the beach and during much of the year you may have the beach all to yourself! But not to worry, if you do find yourself needing anything, you are just a few minutes down the road from restaurants, shopping and activities.

If you are feeling adventurous, schedule your climb to the top – its 131 steep ladder steps – but the view from the top is absolutely amazing.

Caswell Beach is also a protected sea turtle nesting area, and nests are monitored from May until August. If you are lucky, you can experience a once in a lifetime experience and see a tiny sea turtle inch its way to the ocean for its first swim.
