Holden, Sunset and Ocean Isle are very seasonal and very small, busy in the summer and almost deserted in the winter. Oak Island/Caswell Beach is a larger island with a much larger full time population but is definately the "redneck" beach of Brunswick County. If you want a city feel then Wilmington is your best option. All of the Brunswick County beaches you named are fairly rural in comparison to Wilmington.
