Surf City


Located on Topsail Island, Surf City, North Carolina is one of those beach settings that spoils you for the others. Once you come to Surf City and indulge yourself in its wide sandy beaches, the beauty of the Atlantic Ocean and an atmosphere that has enough commercialism to be convenient and yet retain its quiet, beachy tone. This North Carolina coastal community, approximately 32 miles from Wilmington, is now more convenient than ever since the 2018 opening of its fixed span high-rise bridge, transporting vacationers across the Intracoastal Waterway to the amazing barrier island of Topsail. From the moment you reach this bridge, you are headed to a perfect beach vacation.

Whether you consider fun in the sun all that you need on a beach vacation or you want every activity known to provide adventure on a beach vacation available, Surf City is the place for you. Stretched along the entrancing Atlantic coast, Surf City is located near the midpoint of this 26-mile island of natural beauty. Our beaches are pristine and not overly crowded. Bring your towel, beach reading and a comfortable chair and enjoy hours of the rest and relaxation you’ve been craving all year. While young children occupy themselves for hours along the shoreline, dolphin watching is another fun activity here. And, given our namesake, if surfing is your thing, Surf City is your beach. You will definitely earn bragging rights when you go home and tell your friends about the waves you caught at Surf City!

Topsail Island is known to be an incredible nesting site for the Loggerhead Sea Turtle. Adults and children learn to appreciate and love this species. Fishermen return to the Surf City Pier, finding it a favorite, with great fishing, two cleaning stations and night lighting. Soundside Park is a delightful, friendly attraction for children and their parents. If you feel like shopping, you will enjoy unique shops for seaside trinkets and our art galleries offering the work of regional artists. When you are ready to indulge in a spa day, there are several wonderful spas in Surf City that will whisk you away from it all.
