One of our hidden treasures is Wrightsville Beach in the Wilmington NC area. The breathtaking island of Wrightsville Beach stretches four miles from Masonboro inlet on the south to Mason inlet on the north. The clear waters off Wrightsville Beach often resemble those of the Caribbean. The city limits of the town of Wrightsville Beach today encompass not only the barrier island but also Harbor Island and a small portion of mainland. Most of the early visitors were fishermen and hunters traveling to the Island by boat. Already the history of Wrightsville Beach, NC was being built on an appreciation of nature and Wrightsville’s bounty. You will truly be amazed at the sunrises on the Atlantic and calming sunsets on the Intracoastal Waterway.  The prices have come down on Wilmington NC real estate, and that includes Wrightsville Beach, NC.  The zip code for Wrightsville Beach is 28480, you can search all Wilmington NC real estate on www.cbbaker.com by zip code, neighborhood and price.  Read More here for homes on the beach below $700,000.
