Wrightsville Beach, an island just over five miles long, resting between the Atlantic ocean and the Intracoastal waterway, is known for being a laid back beach town with clear, blue waters filled with surfers, swimmers, and wildlife. Whether it’s walking The Loop, grabbing a bite on the water, stopping to shop in Lumina Station, or celebrating the famous Flotilla, Wrightsville Beach has something to offer everyone year-round. Visit the beach with ease knowing you have a full Ocean rescue squad or launch your boat at the community boat launch and refuel at one of the many full-service marinas on the Intracoastal. Beautiful luxury homes, historic homes, condos, and much more fill the island. All that have or still do live on the island will say that it truly is a magical experience to live here.
