Surf City Pier, Surf City

4.3
Topsail Island's first ocean pier, the Surf City Pier, was originally built in 1948. It has been owned and operated by the Lore family since 1973.

The pier is 937 feet long with a 40-foot octagon at the end. Also included are two large fish cleaning stations with fresh running water, and plenty of lighting for all night fishing. We are open from late March to the Sunday after Thanksgiving, including Holidays. (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) Sorry no Alcohol allowed anywhere on the premises.

The Surf City Pier comes complete with a large assortment of bait, a fully stocked tackle shop, Rental Equipment, and an assorted collection of t-shirts and souvenirs.

While visiting please remember to stop in for one of our famous fresh ground beef burgers, served from, the grill. You can enjoy it while resting in our tranquil outside dining area or out om the pier. Clean Restrooms are provided.

  • I love looking over the pier to just watch the waves splash the shore, or see the jelly fish swim deep within the ocean. The pier is just a really cool and fun place to hang for any age. If your a bit squeamish, try not to watch the fisherman demolish the fish they catch, slicing them into fillets 😡. Anyways. I got to experience many other cool things. Someone even caught a pufferfish! And it can be really entertaining to see if someone reels in something epic! Mind you the cost is one dollar for anyone over 10 I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong. Have fun! Highly recommend if your looking for just a cool place to chill and relax. Or even fish! πŸ‘ŒπŸΌπŸ¦ˆ
  • Everyone there was very helpful and nice. My son and I was there and had a great time. We had no problem getting fish. Can't wait to come back for our next vacation. Thank you!
