Topsail Island is Beautiful

One of the main things that attracts people to Topsail Island is its beauty! If you're a beach lover, this is the place for you. Miles of sparkling waters and sandy beaches set the perfect backdrop for retirement in paradise! Spend your mornings enjoying the dolphins playing in the Atlantic, stroll local shops during the day, and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening to the sounds of the waves.

The Weather is Nice Year-Round

Here in eastern North Carolina, we're fortunate enough to experience all four seasons! This is great because it means no single season wears out its welcome. You can expect January through March to be fairly cold, however we don't typically get much snow locally. April through June things start warming up and blooming, then July through September is the hottest time of the year. Temperatures during the Summer months are usually in the 90's. Finally, October welcomes cooler weather through the rest of the year, perfect for breaking out those sweaters and sweatshirts we all so love!
