Family oriented get away from it all kind of beach town. Beach rentals can be pricey, but for a large group well worth the money. If you want to sit on the beach and chill this is a great place to do that. The kids can play safely on the beach or in the water. I went early morning and... More

Visited WB on a weekday, around lunchtime. The beach was beautiful and clean. Not many people visiting, but a half-dozen surfers were in the water. There was plenty of parking on the day I visiting in late August and yes, you have to pay a meter, get a receipt, and walk back to your car and put the receipt in... More

Went on a Saturday around 11. The beach had people already setup but not nearly as much as I expected for a weekend. The water was the perfect temperature and weather was nice. It was a short walk to rent a board and go surfing. Waves weren't that impressive and people seemed to just surf without any common courtesy. The... More

We stayed at the Islander Condominiums right on the water. The location was excellent! The condos are very quiet and the beach was not crowded here at all. Condos are very convenient to Wilmington. Just eight minutes from Harris Teeter. There can be a lot of traffic on the weekends so stay off the road during prime beach coming and... More

This would be a fun place to go only if you rent a place to stay right across from the beach. Good luck finding a parking spot to walk to the beach in the weekends in summer here otherwise

My wife and I come down every year to Wilmington. Wrightsville Beach is always on our list of places to go. The beach is always clean and the water is great. Love coming here.

I live in Raleigh, NC so Wrightsville Beach is a quick day trip for me and my family. We were there just the other day. Gorgeous sunny day mixed with not too warm tempatures. The water is a breath-taking blue and the beaches are clean and well kept. We paid $15 to park all day at beach access #16. This... More

If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy, commercial beach, then Wrightsville Beach is the way to go. Wide, clean, and quiet, Wrightsville Beach provides the perfect backdrop for families with children as well as romantic getaways.
