The Best Surfing Spots on Wrightsville Beach
1. Figure Eight Island
Covering the area between Rich Inlet and Mason Inlet, Figure Eight Island is an affluent vacation community. Surfing access is by special pass, but you'll need to paddle from Shell Island and northward across the inlet. Longboarders will love the surf conditions, thanks to enormous swells that provide adrenaline-inducing surfing. It’s also an ideal beach to bring your pet for an outdoor play session.2. Crystal Pier
Also called the Oceanic Pier, this historic jetty is popular with many visitors as it provides excellent rideable swells. It’s a highly recommended surfing spot for amateur and intermediate short boarders, with gently rolling waves.3. C Street
When on C Street, keep an eye out for water conditions and the tidal aspects. Even at high tides, the surf breaks here offer a fun and exciting ride even at high tides, as the waters remain shallow. C Street's outer banks tend to swell further when the tide recedes, providing surfers with a chance to chase the waves.4. Masonboro Island
Located directly south of Wrightsville Beach, Masonboro Island is one of coastal North Carolina's more secluded areas, which offers a great escape from the bustling urban scene beyond. There's no bridge linking it to the mainland; visitors can easily access the island by boat. The north of the island, near the jetty, provides the best surfing conditions, though it can quickly fill with visitors.
Bird Sanctuaries and Mysterious Mailboxes
Make like an oystercatcher and follow the River to the Sea Bikeway along with these migratory birds. Discover Mason Inlet Waterbird Management Area, a 300 acre bird sanctuary where you can see the birds nesting. Charter a deep sea fishing boat, or go on a fishing cruise. Another interesting outpost is the Mailbox on the Beach where people pour out their hearts in letters and post them to strangers.
It's All Going on, All Year Long
Join in the Wrightsville Beach Marathon or the Iron Man race, right here on the beach. Dive beneath the sea surface on an underwater safari hunt, or catch yourself a marlin at one of the famous marlin tournaments. If you've got surfing skills, this is the place to compete. Chill out at the Jazz Festival, or watch the fireworks and parade of painted boats at the annual Vacation Flotilla.
