Elevate Your Summer Vacation at Wrightsville Beach

Spend your summer days at "a beach lover's heaven," declared one of the South's Best Beaches by Southern Living magazine. With a plethora of tours and cruises, special family programs and watersports galore, you may never want to leave our island paradise.

With so many ways to explore Wrightsville Beach, you and your family are sure to enjoy living the island life this summer. Our vibrant beach town motivates healthy activities, while immersed in pristine surroundings. Stay active on or off our blue waters with a summer vacation learning to surf or engaging in a plethora of other watersports. Rent a kayak and paddle with friends through the marshes along the Intracoastal Waterway, explore the wide open sea by booking a Gulf Stream charter excursion, spend your morning exploring a migratory bird sanctuary on Masonboro Island Reservescuba dive sunken shipwrecks along the coast, spy natural wonders on a sunset eco-tour with the family or try a paddleboarding charter.

When outdoor activities fade into ultimate relaxation, indulge in resort amenities or nearby spa treatments after a day of boutique shopping. For family excursions that are educational, too, experience the island’s history at the Wrightsville Beach Historic Square or learn about sea creatures at a kid-friendly touch tank event at the Stanback Coastal Education Center. Exceptional restaurants serve fresh farm- or sea-to-table dishes to satisfy the foodies, and everyone will delight in finishing the day watching majestic sunsets. Just another day on the island.
