11-Surf City and Topsail Beach

Surf City is a town located on Topsail Island which is about 40 minutes drive north of Wilmington. Topsail Island is a 41.8 km long barrier island off the coast of North Carolina. Prior to World War II, Topsail Island was only accessible by boat.

Residents consider their community a bit of a hidden jewel. It is not developed like Carolina beach. It is made up mostly of permanent beach residences and vacation rentals. There are very few commercial enterprises.

There are no boardwalks on the beach, just wooden stairs to get over the dunes. The only "beach houses" that appear to be permitted are ones where there are gaps in the sand dunes.
