Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental on Topsail Island, North Carolina your home away from home

Topsail Island runs for 26 miles as a barrier island just south of the Outer Banks. There are two bridges giving access to this beautiful island - a swing bridge near Surf City and a high-rise bridge at the north end of Topsail Island.

Things to Do on Topsail Island, NC

Be prepared for pirates’ tales when you choose a holiday rental on Topsail Island. The island got its name from the fact that pirates hid in the channel between the island and the mainland and only their topsail gave any indication of their whereabouts. You may want to join the treasure hunters who still search for Blackbeard’s treasure and gold, allegedly hidden in the maritime forests on the island. The main beaches – Topsail Beach, North Topsail Beach and Surf City Beach all have superb sands and clean waters for swimming, surfing, sunbathing, angling and watersports. Take a boat trip along the pretty coast or charter a fishing boat and go sport fishing.

Places to Visit Around Topsail Island, NC

The main place to visit on Topsail Island is the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehab Centre. Visitors can drop into the centre on most summer afternoons from 2-4pm and view loggerhead, green and Kemp’s Ridley turtles and learn about the problems facing these amazing creatures. On the mainland, Wilmington is an interesting port city to visit on a day trip from your Topsail Island holiday rental. The mile-long Riverwalk is a popular attraction along with the USS North Carolina, a former war ship which is open for tours. Cape Fear Museum is the oldest history museum in North Carolina and dates back to 1898.

Travel to Topsail Island, NC

Topsail Island holiday rentals are served by Myrtle Beach International Melbourne (MYR) Airport which is about 3 miles southwest of downtown Myrtle Beach. The small airport is a hub for Direct Air and a focus city for Allegiant Air and has regular flights with Delta, Continental, Spirit and US Airways although most entail a connection from one of their hubs. A planned expansion project for the airport is scheduled to be completed in 2013. Visitors can easily pick up a hire car from the airport and drive the 118 miles north to Topsail Island along the US-17. Alternatively, there is a domestic airport at Wilmington (ILM) just 38 miles away with connections from most US hub cities.
