The southern part of Topsail lies in Pender County, while the northern side lies in Onslow County. The island is made up of 3 beach communities: Topsail Beach, North Topsail Beach and Surf City. All of these seaside communities offer unique, reasonably priced real estate which creates a popular location for an investment. You will find everything from multi-family homes to small cottages that will accommodate all coastal lifestyles. There are 3,500 year-round residents on the island and seasonal rentals are usually booked far in advance. Legend has it that pirates used to hide between the Island and the mainland and ambush merchant ships off the Carolina coast. The island got its name because the merchant seamen began watching for the pirate ships top sails behind the island. Those who live on Topsail Island are treated to colorful sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean and breathtaking sunsets over Topsail Sound. Apart from the stretches of beautiful sandy beaches, you will find a variety of vegetation including the maritime forests and an abundance of wildlife.
