A long stretch of clean, soft sand, sits in a small town just east of Wilmington. You can explore the waters lapping this golden beach by kayak or paddle board, or watch the sun setting over the ocean during an evening harbor cruise. The beach hosts a variety of family-friendly activities including treasure hunts, swimming and surfing lessons, and eco tours designed to introduce you to North Carolina's rich marine life. You can also visit a small history museum here, housed inside a restored beach cottage originally built in 1907. Once the sun goes down, explore the many beachfront restaurants and taverns, serving signature cocktails and local seafood specialties. A visit to Wrightsville Beach Municipal Complex represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Wrightsville Beach trip maker site to plot your vacation.

It is a nicely maintained greenspace in the middle of a highly built up beach community. "The Loop" is a very popular 2.4 mile circle that includes the municipal Park complex and part of Wrightsville Beach. There is a playground that is well-maintained and a lot of open green grass.
We anchored just outside this park and used it for dinghy access. Great spot. Great town.
