Topsail Island Vacation Rentals
Located along the intracoastal waterway in North Carolina, Topsail Island is a 26-mile long barrier island, encompassing beautiful sandy beaches as well as a pristine natural habitat for the local wildlife. Topsail Island is an hour north of Wilmington and a pretty straight-forward drive.
Topsail Island has a unique history that children and adults alike love to learn about. The island is said to have gotten its name from pirates that used to hide between the island and mainland. It’s said that merchant ships eventually caught on to the pirates in-wait and started to lookout for the tops of their sails visible in the distance, hence the name “topsail.”
Topsail Island comprises three distinct beaches: Topsail Beach, Surf City, and North Topsail Beach. Each of these areas offers unique views, sounds, and atmosphere. Nevertheless, each one also offers incredible vacation home rentals with fantastic oceanfront retreats.
First, get to know the island a bit so you can decide which area of Topsail is perfect for you and your traveling crew.
