My wife and I went to Wrightsville Beach (off season) on a recommendation from our daughter. We stay at a great hotel right on the beach. No matter if we were taking long walks along the beach or enjoying the view from our balcony the beach was always very clean. Even the streets were clean. The people of Wrightsville Beach... More

Drove around the beach looking at homes, stopped for lunch at The Oceanic, and checked out The Loop. Wish we could have spent more time on the beach.

Went for the Flotilla. Had a ball. I prefer the beach during the offseason, and I was not disappointed. Friendly people, perfect weather, the beach was spotless, thoroughly enjoyed our trip, will definitely return.

Its been too long since I have been to the beach. This was a wonderful trip to go. Not to far, water still warm, and not too busy.

Calm, peaceful, charming, friendly are all adjective to describe this small peace of heaven. There is so much to do especially if you like history. Wilmington is so close by. It is the best of both worlds, the ocean and the intercoastal waterways coupled with Wilmington and it's history. Chill and do nothing but relax on the beautiful beaches or... More

The water is turquoise and the beach is white, you feel like your on a Caribbean beach. Great place for families and couples.

This was a great beach--very clean, nice sand. Tons of shells--little hard on the feet because of all the broken shells. Only problem was the parking. $2.50 an hour and not a ton of parking available. Not a ton of people there so nice and quiet.

Parking is problematic, 2.50 hour or 15.00 day. But beach access is plentiful. Beaches are really clean and nice. Not for bare feet because of all the broken shells. Lots of surfers. Sudden drop off may be issue for small children.

Avoid Wrightsville Beach!!!! Go to Topsail or Carolina Beaches instead. In addition to high parking charges the city of Wrightsville beach has imposed a litany of rules and regulations backed up by significant fines. My wife and I simply trying to enjoy an afternoon on the beach, not bothering anyone were cited a $100 fine by beach roaming officials looking... More

What a beautiful beach. Enjoyed a September visit to the beach for a conference. Weather was beautiful and the beach was gorgeous. Wide beaches that were not crowded.
