The sand is almost white. Nothing like a lot of the other beaches close by. We found lots of different sea shells and enjoyed the walk on the beach . Its just peaceful quit and just breathtaking . Pull up a chair and if needed a umbrella and enjoy the view. You wont be disappointed .

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.
