I liked that this beach is set up for a relaxing day at the beach. There is adequate parking, sanitary bathroom facilities (which i didn't use), water for rinsing sand off and lifeguards and security patrol. I am mid-west born and bred. No oceans in my background. This was my first visit and I loved it.

Lots to offer including great & clean beaches. Life guards stands all along the beach front along with beach patrols. Beach and Water are clean. Great place to visit with the family.

I picked Wrightsville Beach based solely on Tripadvisor reviews. I am glad to post a great review as well! Very clean, very large beach. No rowdy kids, no drunk idiots, just a bunch of families enjoying themselves. Lots of surfers, too, which was pretty cool to watch. 5 minutes to the west is Wilmington, NC. Another great place! The entire... More

This is a great beach if you are particular about the water. The water here is very clean! Alot of the beaches I have been to in North Carolina and South Carolina have dirt looking water and it has alot of litter. This beach was not over populated and the surrounding restaurants had a short wait time. My 8 year... More

We loved Wrightsville beach! It wasn't crowded, the beach is clean and it's very family-friendly. The local restaurants serve quality food - unlike a lot of beaches -it doesn't feel like a tourist trap. The people who work there seem genuinely interested in giving customers a positive experience.

Beautiful, clean expansive beach... The waves were pretty rocking during our week stay! Boogie boards & wave hopping were fun for ages 7-65!

Went there with my son today to surf. Clean water, friendly people, nice beach. The only downfall is the ridiculous price to park!

We were there for a family wedding and stayed in a wonderful hotel away from the beach. The wedding on the beach was beautiful and Shells did a great job of arranging it. So, we decided to stay over the weekend and enjoy the ocean and the beach. We got down there on Saturday morning about 9 a.m. and there... More
