"Aside from swimming in ocean water that is generally in the 80's during the summer months, my favorite activity is walking down the beach at sunset to Masonboro inlet, about a half mile away. Sitting on the balcony and watching the waves, surfers, and pelicans, is always a restful experience."

About Wrightsville Beach...
"Wrightsville Beach is an island that retains its village-like feel and wonderful sense of removal from everyday life. A clean, breathtaking stretch of white sand along the beach with its crystal blue water and the Intracoastal Waterway just begs for watersports activities, swimming, sunbathing, beachcombing, fishing, and surfing. A small history museum, narrated harbor cruises, a waterbird sanctuary, and signature events enhance the coastal experience.
The athletic at heart can take on The Loop, a fitness trail that circles the inner island. Shoppers gravitate to the beachside stores and a nearby distinctive, welcoming shopping village. Boaters launch from full-service marinas and history buffs soak up the local museum and narrated scenic cruises along the Intracoastal Waterway that offer a glimpse into the island's past.
Some of the finest seafood restaurants on the North Carolina coast with spectacular oceanfront or Intracoastal Waterway views can be found here, along with vibrant nightspots."
