ABOUT WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH
Wrightsville Beach is located at 34.2111° N, 77.7986° W in New Hanover Co. on the southeast North Carolina coast. We are in the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone 8A. In addition to our beautiful, unspoiled beaches, you can enjoy world-class surfing, paddle boarding, fishing, clamming, spearfishing, boating, or running The Loop, a popular 2.45 mile running trail. Walk to restaurants, shopping, the grocery store or local watering holes. Visit Wrightsville Beach Park for basketball, tennis, playgrounds or other workout equipment. While you're there, take time to walk through the Harbor Way Garden, the Plant It Pink Garden, and the Children's Fountain. We'd love for you to visit and see for yourselves. We're just over the drawbridge from Wilmington, NC.
