WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- Warmer weather earlier in the season means more people are already making their way to the beach. That's boosting business and morale.

The Shell Island Resort at Wrightsville Beach says it has been booked for the past couple of weeks and through this weekend. Managers say they usually are busy, but not this early in the season.

Now they are making adjustments to handle the surplus of visitors, but they say it's a good problem to have. The resort has hired more employees to help cover the surge.

"We've kind of pushed hiring a lot," manager Heidi Bass said. "We have a bigger staff right now than we usually do this time of year just to answer phones especially."

Shell Island Resort is booked throughout the Easter weekend, which they say is normal.

With a promising forecast for next week, they expect the visitors to keep coming.
