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.

  • 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.
