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, beach combing, and fishing. The athletic at heart can take on the Loop, a fitness trail that circles the inner island. Boaters launch from full-service marinas, and history buffs soak up the local museum and narrated scenic cruises along the Intracoastal Waterway.
Visitors to Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, can rest a little easier knowing they have the Wrightsville Beach Ocean Rescue Squad watching over them. Recognized as an advanced agency by the US Lifesaving Association, team members are highly trained in both open water rescue and emergency medicine.

And clustered around the bridge are some of the finest seafood restaurants on the coast, along with vibrant nightspots. Favorites include Boca Bay, Port City Chop House, Port Land Grill, and The Oceanic.
It’s all enough to make residents and visitors feel as if Wrightsville is still their own private getaway island. All while being minutes away from great golf, Mayfaire (upscale shopping & dining), and downtown Wilmington!
