About Topsail Island
Haven't vacationed here before? Topsail Island, North Carolina is the best kept secret on the Crystal Coast! We're about 30 minutes north of Wilmington. We're not overcrowded like some other vacation spots along eastern North Carolina!
Pronounced " tops'l", our 26 mile long barrier island was used in the 1700s by pirates who hid their ships in ambush awaiting hapless merchantmen that might pass by the Carolina coast. Only the pirates' topsails could be seen over the dunes, hence our name.
There are about 3,500 year-round residents on the island enjoying the quiet, seaside lifestyle. We islanders are very protective of our environment. We even have "The Turtle Hospital": the all-volunteer Topsail Turtle Project and Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center.
