welcome to topsail island nc

Topsail Island is a 26-mile long NC Barrier Island that is perfect for a relaxed vacation. If you like quiet beaches, the Topsail Island Beaches are just what you’re looking for. Accessible by two bridges, the Topsail Island consists of three towns; mostly residential North Topsail Beach, active Surf City and quiet Topsail Beach. Along with the mainland towns of Sneads Ferry and Holly Ridge they make up the Greater Topsail Area. There’s also Hammocks Beach State Park near Swansboro.

 

Pirates would hid their ships in the channel behind the island and wait for passing merchant ships, and attack , robbing them of their cargo. Eventually the merchants became aware of this infamous hiding place and began to watch for the tops of the pirates' sails showing over the rolling dunes. Thus giving the name Topsail Island.
