Looking for a beautiful beach community that is peaceful and has lots of character? Want a laid back vacation in a place that still has lots to do? Then Wrightsville Beach is the place for you and Summer Sand Suites is the place you want to stay! Situated in the middle of the island, Summer Sands offers the perfect location and amenities to make your visit comfortable and carefree. Conveniently located within walking distance to both the harbor and the ocean, you can take your pick of boating, sunning, surfing, swimming, jet skiing, kayaking and fishing. As an alternative to surf and sand, the private swimming pool and sundeck are open to you and your family during the spring, summer and fall months.

Wrightsville Beach is still mainly residential so you won’t find carnival rides, arcades or mini golf, but that’s not to say those family activities are not available. A short car ride takes you to nearby Wilmington where you can find shopping venues, mini golf, bumper cars, laser tag, art galleries, restaurants and more!

The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Take a stroll to dinner, stop by one of the local watering holes for a refreshing cocktail or dance the night away at one of the island’s hot spots. If your idea of bliss is just a quiet night in, you can prepare a meal in the fully furnished kitchen and enjoy your dinner in the dining area.

Each suite at Summer Sands is non-smoking and has a King sized bed in the bedroom and a Murphy bed in the living area, two flat screen TV’s,and now a Keurig coffee maker and a private balcony offering spectacular views of the island. Off-road parking offers easy access to your suite and the services of the motel and is an absolute blessing on busy summer weekends!

The Wrightsville Beach / Wilmington area is full of historic charm, great weather and fantastic food. No matter what you’re looking for in your vacation destination, the Cape Fear Coast can offer you that and more. Come stay with us at Summer Sands Suites!
