Oak Island Scenic Walkways: SE 31st Street Walkway

There are three scenic walkways on Oak Island, NC that cross the Davis Canal, connecting the North Wooded side of the island to the Beach Side. These are located on SE 9th Street, SE 20th Street and SE 31st Street. Each offers a nice walking trail where you can catch views of the canal, wildlife and access the beach! In this blog we are going to take a closer look at SE 31st Street Walkover on Oak Island. Come take a walk with me!

There are signs at the end of the SE streets with signs that indicate there is a scenic walkway. This walkover is unique with a kayak launch closest to the SE 31st Street side of the walkover. There are also kayaks available to rent through Oak Island Parks and Recreation. Information is below. This walkway has breathtaking views. It took me about 8 minutes to make it to the sand!

Use this walkway to access the Davis Canal, the beach, simply enjoy a walk or picnic!
