“Relaxing”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I enjoyed a week at North Topsail Beach. Although it did not have a lot of restaurants or shopping, the island was nice and comfortable. We had a very relaxing time while there, which was the main reason we went. We went in off-season, so not a lot of people around and plenty of room on the beach. Our stay was very pleasant and relaxing and would definitely consider going back sometime.

“A great quiet beach”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

If you want a beach that is crowded, full of high rises, an outlet mall, and every mainstreet eatery that you can name, well this isn't the place to go. Topsail beach, the Island is never crowded, and all the communities are quaint. The town of Topsail Beach is where everybody knows you, even if it's your first stay. Not commercialized, and mostly Homes. My favorite place to relax, fish, and did I say relax? Surf City is the biggest, as you can do most everything a family does while on vacation. The northern Beaches are to very long, and there are never too many people, as there is no overdevelopement! there are a couple of condos, and highrises, but never full, and they are far enough apart that the renters can spread out on the beach. Try any of the beaches on Topsail Island, and you will be coming back.

“Great Family Vacation!”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

LOVE this little town! This is a wonderful little beach town. We rented a beautiful little oceanfront house (Comes A Time - through Century 21). It was great because everything was within walking distance. The town was quiet, just what we were looking for, mostly families and locals. Everyone we met were very friendly and helpful. The beach had bigger waves than other beaches we have visited so we could watch the surfers which was great. This is a very pet friendly area. There were lots of dogs on the beach but the beach was very clean. (Love it when people pick up after their pets.) Our little yorkie, Chicklet, loved her time on the beach and walking around town. We will definitely return to this town.

“Beautiful Beach”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Lovely area! Hurricanes love it also.....don't buy property, erosion is taking the island away :( Go for vacation and rent a house or condo.
