Come to Wrightsville Beach to try something new; stay and make it your annual beach destination. Many families return each year to this laid-back, scenic coastal town to watch spectacular sunrises, swim in the crystal clear waters, stroll the 2.5-mile Loop, walk along Johnnie Mercer's Pier, and enjoy delicious seafood with a view of the Atlantic Ocean. Try kayaking, paddle-boarding, and Wrightsville Beach's world-class surfing, or take the kids on a treasure hunt or eco-tour.
