Come Explore Life in Wrightsville Beach

It used to be you could only get to Wrightsville Beach by water. Today you can use the bridge, but the island retains its village-like feel and wonderful sense of remove from everyday cares.

A clean, uncluttered stretch of white sand and sparkling water just begs for swimming, sunbathing, beachcombing, and fishing. The athletic at heart can take on the Loop, a fitness trail that circles the inner island. Bargain hunters gravitate to the beachside stores and distinctive, welcoming shopping village. Boaters launch from full-service marinas, and history buffs soak up the local museum and narrated scenic cruises along the Intracoastal Waterway that offer a glimpse into the island's past.

And clustered around the bridge are some of the finest seafood restaurants on the coast, along with vibrant nightspots. It's all enough to make visitors feel as if Wrightsville is still their own private getaway island.
