Elevate a Summer Getaway

With so many ways to explore Wrightsville Beach, now is the perfect time to enjoy living the island life this summer. Catch picture-perfect sunrises over morning coffee at your oceanfront resort then schedule a scenic cruise with the concierge. Enjoy coastal dining delights outside on a canopied garden deck or overlooking the boats on the Intracoastal Waterway. Fill your day with adventures on and under the sea with once in a lifetime diving, sailing or private island excursions. Sip craft cocktails and listen to live music most evenings on the island. Full service resort accommodations, experiences and cuisine are just another day on the island.

From Surf to Ales

Take surf lessons from one of the beach’s first surf shops – Sweetwater Surf Shop. Their talented local instructors include Ben Bourgeois, a member of the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame and Jo Pickett, champion surfer and Wahine Classic organizer. Popular local brewery, Flying Machine Brewing Company is opening a taproom and kitchen on Harbor Island. The restaurant will offer local coastal cuisine as well as a full bar including 10 rotating taps of Flying Machine beers.
