There are a lot of great things to do and see on Oak Island, and the beach is the epicenter of the best activities. This week we have a simple guide to one of the most relaxing things you can do on the beach – walking! 
Here are the five reasons we can all benefit from a daily walk on the beach. 

Sunsets and Sunrises

Sunsets and sunrises are just magical things to witness on the water, particularly the Atlantic Ocean. The combination of the ocean and the sun create unique and spectacular images that will be remembered for ages. Whether you want a romantic walk along the beach or just want to start the day off with something beautiful, your daily morning/evening walk is sure to be an Oak Island memory for the ages. 

Lose Weight

If you are like us, vacation is never the best time for achieving diet goals. However, a daily walk is a great way to burn a few calories to keep those delicious vacation indulgences off the waistline. A morning walk in a fasted state (that is, before you eat breakfast) is the perfect way to fire up the metabolism, burn fat and of course, give you some great cardio exercise. 

Release Stress

The sound of the waves, the cool summer breezes, and of course, all that Carolina sunshine create the perfect recipe for releasing stress. Oak Island is a wonderful place to visit, and the area has a small town laid back vibe. Everyone is relaxed and it is no wonder, we live on the beach. For as long as you are our guests, do what the locals do! Head to the beach each day, take a nice walk and let your stress drift away with the tide. 

Discover Oak Island 

Walking is always a great way to explore a new place and Oak Island is no different. A walk on the beach takes you past lighthouses, historic sites and piers. There is so much to see on a walk along the beaches of Oak Island. You won't find it hard to get motivated for a daily stroll on our pristine beaches. 

Every day is different

People who are not "beach people" think the ocean is always the same; waves come in, waves go out. But nothing could be further from the truth. The beach is a dynamic environment, and those who walk the beaches often note the subtle changes in the dunes, the color of the water and the ever changing horizon. However many days you have on Oak Island, know that each one will be different from the one before.

Of course, it is hard to walk on the beach if you aren't at the beach. We can fix that problem by booking your Oak Island beach vacation.
