Mariners who want an easy way to access the Intracoastal Waterway as well as the open Atlantic Ocean waters will find a convenient outlet thanks to the boat ramp at the Wrightsville Beach Causeway. Bordering a number of local marinas, kayak rental establishments, and watersports companies, the Wrightsville Beach Causeway is arguably the heart of Wrightsville Beach’s watersports scene, thanks to an easy-to-reach locale and a prime setting that’s bordered by miles of water.
The boat ramp on the edge of the Wrightsville Beach Causeway features 72 parking spaces as well as multiple launching lanes that directly connect with the Intracoastal Waterway. (Visitors should note that the spaces can fill up quickly in the summer months, especially on weekends, so arriving early is key.) In addition, the local waters are nicely calm, and can be explored by kayakers who want a picturesque view of the town of Wrightsville Beach from an on-the-water perspective. Best of all, because the boat ramp and parking areas are adjacent to the bridge itself, the Wrightsville Beach Causeway is easy to reach for Wilmington and Wrightsville Beach visitors alike. An ideal spot for paddlers, mariners, and anyone who wants a unique vantage point, the Wrightsville Beach Causeway and its on-site boat ramp is a fine spot to celebrate life on the water.
