CBS News recently published their “Top 10″ list of best beach towns to retire to and we’re excited to announce that St. James Plantation‘s very own Oak Island, NC beaches made the list!  How cool is that?! Get the full list here.

Oak Island beaches stretch over 10 miles and are just a short 10-minute drive from the North Carolina retirement community of St. James Plantation.  The wide, south-facing beaches are unique, giving beach-goers the opportunity to catch a sunrise and a sunset. St. James’ private beach club, St. James by the Sea, offers private parking, showers, a pool, changing rooms and a picnic area. Making a day at the beach even MORE enjoyable!

The “best places” list, which ranks Oak Island NC beaches #3, took into account natural scenery, amenities and activities offered, proximity to health care, taxes, home prices, cost of living and population of people older than 55.
