Caswell Beach is a quiet, residential coastal community that is located on the eastern part of Oak Island in Brunswick County. Although it was incorporated as a town in 1975, Caswell Beach has a rich history dating back to 1825. The town is named after nearby Fort Caswell, which was considered one of the strongest forts in the world at the time it was built. In the town of Caswell Beach, you will also find The Oak Island Golf Club, which is a beautiful 18-hole course, and the Oak Island Lighthouse, which is a towering 169 feet high. The lighthouse is the brightest lighthouse in the United States, the second brightest in the world, and can be seen up to 24 miles from the coast. With the wind swept live oaks that adorn the island, and views of the Cape Fear River, Intracoastal Waterway, Bald Head Island and the Atlantic, Caswell Beach is among the most beautiful beaches in North Carolina. Sprawling homes, beach cottages, attractive condos and future home sites dot the oceanfront and marsh-side of the island. Because the island is narrow, inland properties are within walking distance of both sides of the island, providing a variety of investment opportunities for both year-round and summer residences.
