Trip Planner: USA / North Carolina / North Carolina Coast / Topsail Island / Surf City / Topsail Island
The peaceful stretches of sand on Topsail Island attract beach lovers and nesting sea turtles. Only two bridges offer access to the island, so you can enjoy the quiet here. According to legend, pirates used the island as a place to hide and then attack passing cargo ships. Some claim that Blackbeard buried treasure here. If you go searching for gold, you might find loggerhead turtle eggs instead. These precious eggs are protected by the island's Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center. At North Topsail Beach, Topsail Beach, and Surf City you'll find activity rentals, restaurants, and lodging options. Put Topsail Island into our Surf City trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Surf City.

This was a fan tastic beach. I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting a comfortable beach vacation without the commercial side of the usual big name beaches. more »
I have been going to Topsail since I was a baby. Ashe Island is my favorite place on Topsail Island. It is a 560-acre island and it is beautiful. It is the best place in the world! more »
