Figure Eight Island offers spectacular bird watching, shell hunting and quiet strolls along the private shore. The island is also a great place for outdoor activities such as boating, fishing, surfing, biking, running, and tennis.
The attraction factor for most is what you won't find anywhere else...like huge hulking hotels, busy shopping centers, gridlock traffic and tourists! This five-mile long, 1,300-acre island has only 441 private residences or vacation homes. Figure Eight offers a private ocean and waterfront community just minutes from Wilmington. The island allows privacy and exclusivity, but is still close to all the amenities we hold dear.
Many years ago before the island became populated; the only residents of Figure Eight Island were wild ponies who galloped freely amongst the dunes. Today, this unique location is home to those who appreciate the naturalized and untouched environment.
