Wrightsville Beach Real Estate & Homes

Wrightsville Beach North Carolina, conveniently located along the coast of Wilmington NC is a favorite spot for vacationers and locals to enjoy the crystal blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. During the 1800's the first small community was created on this barrier island by a group of close friends and their families. Now, after over a 100 years of development and popularity, the affluent community still maintains a year round population of around 3000 residents along the 5 mile stretch of white sand beaches.

Before the only drawbridge was built to the island, locals and visitors used boats and even swam the short crossing of the Intracoastal Waterway to reach the island. However, after the Wrightsville Beach drawbridge was built, the number of visitors to the island swelled. Locals and people from all over New Hanover County and the southeast would make the trip to the island for a weekend getaway or even a quick day trip at the beach. Of course, once I-40 was built, this helped fuel the number of vacationers to the island. For more detailed information, visit the Town Of Wrightsville Beach website on tourism, weather and other helpful information

Despite these changes in the growth of visitors and dedicated beach goers, Wrightsville Beach has been very successful in ensuring the beach continues to be uncrowded and its real estate caters to the upper income and echelon of the area. With strict architectural rules placed on both residential and commercial buildings, the residents maintain an attractive landscape that has eliminated unsightly things like billboard signs, over-crowding of retail and other gaudy tourist attractions found at more populated beaches.

Wrightsville Beach Lifestyle

An unlimited supply of activities and outdoor things to do await visitors and residents of the beach. Separating the island from the mainland is the idyllic Intracoastal Waterway, or ICW. Boat lovers can be found enjoying these calm waters day and night, fishing, skiing or just relaxing during a Sunday afternoon cruise.

For the health conscious and exerciser in the family, there's the famous "Wrightsville Beach Loop" a 2.4 mile path that circles the center of the island. Enjoyed by walkers, runners and bikers, the loop is fully paved, circles the beautiful Wrightsville Beach Park and provides crossing over the 2 small bridges between the center of the island and the beach side. On any given day you might find a kayaker enjoying a moment of solitude sliding through the tall marsh grass. For the more adventurous, Wrightsville Beach was listed in The World’s Best Surf Spots by National Geographic Magazine.

Food and wine lovers won't be disappointed with the choice of restaurants on the island. Sunday afternoons along the ICW, you'll find places like Bluewater or Dockside restaurant with a basket of fresh shrimp and a cold Corona. For a more refined taste, Airlie Gardens or Oceanic provide wine tastings and excellent food.
