Wrightsville Beach began as a community of family and friends on a small barrier island in southeastern North Carolina. Since the late 1800's, generations have come to Wrightsville Beach to enjoy the inviting waters, soothing sands, and picturesque surroundings. Wrightsville Beach has grown to incorporate two adjacent islands and to become one of the most popular vacation spots in North Carolina. Our average year-round population of 3,000 residents peaks in the summer months to 14,000 overnight visitors and 40,000 that come for the day.
