  • What a beautiful pier. I’ve traveled to wrightsville beach a lot over the years and this has always remained one of my favorite piers - both underneath and on top! Be prepared for the entrance fee when entering. Also, parking can be a bear but this pier is totally worth visiting. It’s close to many hotels, restaurants and a very short drive down from Wilmington. Enjoy fishing off the pier, shopping in the pier store or walking on the beach at sunset. It’s an awesome place to stop by.
  • It's busy in the summer season. You can fish from the pier and the beach below is really nice. Parking in the area can be tricky and you most likely will have a walk to access any beach in the area. But there are many access points. The lifeguards are super active making it feel safe. The beach was very clean.
