We do not go into water or sunbathe any longer but wanted to see the beach and it was beautiful. Looked like a lot of really nice people and families in this upscale community. Beautiful houses.

Great beach!!! Traffic and parking can be difficult at times. Great restaurants and sites to see along Lumina Drive. Wonderful water views along the waterway. Awesome sunset photos can be taken there. The Wrightsville Beach Park Loop is awesome!

Found it to be very clean, mostly residential with some large hotels, not a lot of tacky souvenir type places, not enough public parking, nice beach with lifeguards. It was a gorgeous day and the sand literally glittered. Very pretty but very hard to walk on without shoes. Evidently... More
