Figure Eight Island, just north of Wrightsville Beach, is a private, very exclusive, oceanfront resort community. This island is a highly restricted residential island of 406 expensive homes. It's a favorite hideaway for stars and political bigwigs who want privacy when they're visiting the area. Former Vice President Al Gore and family, for example, have enjoyed vacationing here since 1997.
The development includes a yacht club, a marina, tennis courts and a boat ramp. The island connects to the mainland by a causeway bridge, and a guard will let you onto the island only if you've called ahead to someone on the island, such as a friend or a real estate agent, and are on the list at the gate.
There are no commercial enterprises here, just pure beautiful beaches for the vacationer looking for some R&R and peace and quiet. The celebrity orientation of the island does not mean regular folk can't rent homes and enjoy a private vacation. In fact, the island is very hospitable to vacationers and welcomes guests to its uncrowded shores.
