We are in love with Topsail Island. There isn't a crazy boardwalk of carnival games and rides. It's a busy beach town. We stay further on the North end and drive into Surf City for shops or restaurants. The beaches are clean and spacious. We...More

My sister and her family live 15 minutes from the beach. It was my family's first time visiting and we really enjoyed it. The area is beautiful. The main area on the island is walkable. Lots to see and do. There are a variety of...More

I loved that beach. My favorite thing to do at the beach is to look for seashells. They were everywhere along with some sharks teeth. Our house was right on the beach so it was just some steps and we were there. We are 9...More

I've been coming to Topsail Island for over 30 years! This is a place that has seen considerable development but the beach is so expansive, it can seem like you're the only one around on your section. It's family friendly, dog friendly and just plain...More

We only like to stay at a rental beach house on the island. The beach isn't over crowded and we do enjoy several of the local bars/ pubs. I do not know anything about the condos.
