We will soon be making our fourth trip to the Wilmington Wrightsville beach area. While we are there Wrightsville beach is our beach of choice. We usually go to the beach during the busiest part of the day yet there is plenty of space. My husband and son swim and pay in the surf. My favorite thing is to sit... More

Wrightsville Beach is a great beach town that appears to welcome its summer visitors with open arms. The town is clean and appears well-managed. There is a variety of food choices and plenty of outdoor activities to keep you busy. The beach itself is beautiful with plenty of access points and a variety of losing options.

We enjoyed walking along the beach up to Johnnie Mercer's Pier, which was a disappointment. Lots of lifeguards, beach patrol. Very nice.

Got handicap wheelchair for free from parks department. Was disappointed that no day umbrella and beach chair vendors rented weekly. Beautiful waves for surfing

lifeguards provided. Umbrella and chair rentals. Nice wide beach, not crowded. Sand generally firm enough for good walking.

When you want a pristine, classic beach, untouched since the 70s, with a few scattered local restaurants, just a couple bars, and clean clean beaches, this is for you. This is NOT an "Ocean City Maryland" beach. If you are looking for rides, boardwalks, hustle, bustle, this is not it. If you want an upper crust of people, clean beaches,... More

I have been coming to Wrightsville beach for over 30 years and it never disappoints me. I can come for the day or spend the night. The beaches are clean and easy to get to. There are a few restaurants and a few hotels that you can stay in. I like that it doesn't have hotel upon hotel. Very family... More
