Situated between the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean, Wrightsville Beach is Wilmington’s prized retreat for coastal living, recreation, and natural splendor.
Merely five miles in total, Wrightsville Beach provides residents, locals, and visitors with a vast selection of water sports and leisurely activities. Pristine sand and waters allow for sports such as surfing, parasailing, windsurfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, and jet skiing. There are numerous sites to fish throughout Wrightsville Beach, and for those interested in boating or sailing, the area also has no shortage of marinas.
Wrightsville Beach is equally beloved for “The Loop,” a path that encompasses the town’s scenic marshes. The nearby Wrightsville Beach Park provides additional offshore exercise amenities including four tennis courts, multiple sand volleyball courts, a playground, and open green spaces.
Integral to Wrightsville’s small-town beach culture is its walkability to local restaurants and markets. Wrightsville Beach is also in close proximity to Wilmington dining, retail, and recreational centers such as Mayfaire, The Forum, and Airlie Gardens. Residential options include a range of modern homes, traditional beach houses, and charming cottages that frequently enjoy commanding views of the ocean or sound.
