Figure-Eight-Island is unique. It's a tranquil, private oceanfront island community, located just minutes from Wilmington and just north of Wrightsville Beach. To reach Figure Eight Island, you cross a private bridge onto the 1,300-acre, highly restricted island of just 441 homes (and no condos.) You won't find huge hotels or shopping centers here, and little traffic or tourists. What you will find are miles of white sandy beach and sparkling blue waters - a completely "non-commercialized" island retreat that has become a hideaway for celebrities and politicians, such as former Vice President Al Gore. The community includes a yacht club, marina, tennis courts and boat ramp, and a guard will let you on the island only if someone on the island, such as a friend or real estate agent, has okayed it. The island offers ideal conditions for swimming, shelling, birdwatching, quiets walks along the beach, kayaking, windsurfing, biking, tennis and golf. If you get a yearning for more excitement and nightlife, just cross the bridge to Wilmington or visit nearby Wrightsville Beach.
