Do you love exploring and enjoying the outdoors while you’re on vacation? Renowned as a watersports haven around the world, there are plenty of ways to embark on an adventure at Wrightsville Beach. From exploring the waterways to admiring a sunset while dining at one of our renowned restaurants to attending one of our seasonal signature events, the possibilities are endless!
Here is a sampling of some fan-favorite adventures, courtesy of the hashtag #MyWBAdventure.
From Sunrise to Sunset
Experience the breathtaking pink, orange and yellow colors above the blue waters from your balcony or the beach. Our island offers the unique opportunity to see the sun rise on the Atlantic Ocean and set over the Intracoastal Waterway. A big thank you to @lmillzzzz for capturing this exceptional moment.
Cast a Line
Visit two iconic piers, Johnnie Mercer’s Pier and the Crystal Pier, to tackle exceptional saltwater fishing for the chance to reel in a big catch. Check out this view from the Crystal Pier, captured by @jajaborimon.
Satisfy your taste buds when exploring waterfront dining options at one of the island’s restaurants. From local diners to coastal-inspired restaurants with seasonal dishes and oceanfront views, we have something to satisfy every appetite! Cheers to @cookiesbycat for sharing her favorite place to dine by the sea.
Soothing, inspiring and therapeutic: These are three common adjectives used to describe the effects of enjoying an oceanfront yoga session or class on the Crystal Pier. Get inspired by this photo of @jennyfromtheyogablock as she practices her yoga poses at sunrise.
Catch a wave like never before at Wrightsville Beach, named one of the “top 20 surf towns in the world” by National Geographic. Beginners can check out a surf lesson or attend one of the beach’s many surf schools or camps. Surfing fan @treycarraway enjoyed a taste of “vitamin sea” while surfing along WB’s coast.
Sun’s Out, Tongues Out
From October 1 to March 31, you and your leashed four-legged friend can enjoy some quality time exploring together. Fido mom @melaniewestheiden showed off her beach buds while enjoying a sunrise here.
Paddleboarding, Kayaking and Sailing, Oh My!
There’s no better place to get out on the water than Wrightsville Beach. Become one with the water when grabbing a standup paddleboard or kayak to take a scenic adventure along our many waterways. Check out these girls with @karsoncoastal, who enjoyed starting their day with a SUP excursion.
