Wrightsville Beach lifting short-term rental ban (for some) and opens limited parking [Free read]

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH — Following suit of its neighbor to the south Carolina Beach, Wrightsville Beach has announced the town would allow short-term rentals once again. Following Covid-19, municipalities and counties across the region announced bans on short-term rentals with the hopes of limiting the number of visitors to the region, and hopefully slow the spread of the virus.

Other measures were also put in place like limiting access to parking lots and dictating what activities people could participate in on the beach itself.

The parking restrictions along with the short-term rental ban will be lifted (at least, in part) on Friday at 5 p.m., however, don’t expect to hit the beach and simply enjoy the sun.

“The Town of Wrightsville Beach will continue Beach Access for non-stationary exercise activities, will open 4 Parking Lots, and opens Short Term Rentals with Restrictions beginning May 8, 2020, at 5:00 p.m.,” according to a town press release.
