Create an itinerary including 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.

  • Amazing expansive beaches that provide a sense of isolation but win the most soothing sense.
  • Beautiful little island. Quiet area. Beaches are full of shells.
