Social Moments

We’re dreaming of sunny days spent lounging in the sand. In the days ahead, we plan to continue sharing beautiful photos and videos of #WrightsvilleBeach on social media. We hope you’re inspired by the scenic views and will think of your next Wrightsville Beach adventure until we can see you again.

The Great Outdoors

For those of you sheltering on the island, there are a variety of outdoor adventures waiting to be explored. From wellness activities to colorful blooms, now is the ideal time to breathe in fresh air and immerse yourself in the great outdoors.

Lace-up your favorite pair of tennis shoes and head to the Wrightsville Beach Loop, a nearly 2.5-mile fitness trail featuring picturesque views of the island’s waterways and marshes. Or, take a scenic bike ride along the 11-mile River to Sea Bikeway beginning at Johnnie Mercers Pier and stretching all the way to nearby Historic Downtown Wilmington.

Lose track of time in Harbor Way Gardens, a one-acre garden located on the west end of Wrightsville Beach Park. Pack your yoga mat and take your practice outdoors to focus on your wellness and reconnect with nature. Then, catch your breath as you relax on the garden’s secluded benches surrounded by shade trees and seasonal blooms.
