Outdoors & Recreation

Wrightsville Beach is known for its active lifestyle where outdoor activities are plentiful. The island’s parks, gardens and outdoor spaces invoke feelings of openness and promote well-being. The Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, Banks Channel and saltwater marshes set the stage for endless water experiences. Surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and fishing are just a few of the many water-based activities to be enjoyed. Jog, bike or explore the island’s parks and gardens if on-land adventure is more your style.
