“Can I live here, please?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Wow, what a beautiful beach and relaxing experience! I hadn't been to the beach in 33 years and this was a terrific reminder on how to spend some time enjoying life! We will definitely go back. This was the highlight of our two year anniversary trip.

“Enchanting Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Traveled to Topsail for the first time with my family last week and fell in love with beach culture. This small town has real big character and a steady pace to enjoy it all.

What a delightful place with hidden gems, all over the place.
Beautiful beaches with soft sand, amazing places to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, fun activities for the kids and exciting things to do for the grown ups.

We found ceramic studios, yoga classes, fitness centers; places to shop, fish, roller skate; even special touches like a Hawaiin Healing Center and a Sea Turtle Sanctuaries.

Our 6 year old did not want to leave and offered his piggy bank money, so we could buy a place. We're considering...

“Best East Coast beach I have seen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Absolutely loved the large waves near the pier. The water is so much prettier than most of the beaches on the East Coast. We will definitely return.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

The beach is lovely it is not crowded at all. The people who are here are family and mature adults The beaches clean free of trash also very little seaweed
Miles and miles of beach for a beautiful walk there are no lifeguards on duty at our end of the island it was a great week just to relax. And enjoy the company of family
