Attractions in Topsail Island, NC

Topsail Beach, the sea turtle sanctuary, is a beach house dotted, 26-mile barrier island, punctuated by a maritime forest. Boating is prized here because the Intracoastal Waterway, a 3,000 mile waterway from the coast of Maine to the Gulf of Mexico, opens up to the Atlantic Ocean through a multitude of sinewy marsh-lined cuts, offering great anchoring and fishing spots at low tide. With miles of beach to cover, a variety of natural areas, the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue and Rehabilitation Center, protected turtle nesting sites, wildlife outlooks, pirate costume events, boat tours and dinner cruises, you may need an extra day to explore historical buildings and the Missles and More Museum.
