Long Beach, North Carolina is a coastal neighborhood that is incorporated into Oak Island, North Carolina in the year of 1955. Located on Oak Island, it is well known for the total devastation it sustained during Hurricane Hazel in 1954; only five of the 357 buildings survived the storm. It merged with neighboring Yaupon Beach in 1999 to form the town of Oak Island and is now a neighborhood of the town.

The community derives its name from one of the longest stretches of beach in the area.
