The Bay View area of N. Topsail Beach is a beautiful and affordable place to buy a home. Located a mile or so from the northernmost tip of N. Topsail, this island neighborhood is a coveted spot in which to vacation, much less to live
Many of the homes have gorgeous picturesque sunset views of the sound/marsh side of the island, and some have ocean views as well. There never seems to be a shortage of wildlife to observe, and the roar of the ocean, which is just a few feet away, makes this place the pinnacle of rest and relaxation. North Topsail Beach is one of the least commercialized beaches in North Carolina, which also contributes to the serenity luring residents and visitors here.
In addition to the charming and beloved local shops and restaurants, this area offers a multitude of outdoor activities. Spend the day playing tennis or golfing at North Shore Country Club. Go fishing with friends on shore or off shore with one of our local fishing charters. Soak up some rays lying on the beach or searching for seashells, or take the girls for some pampering at one of our local spas.
If it's the excitement of the city that you desire, both Jacksonville and Wilmington, NC are less than an hour away. There are plenty of familiar retailers and restaurants there, as well as an endless supply of entertainment and fun for the whole family. Try the Battleship USS North Carolina or Airlie Gardens in Wilmington or maybe the Lynnwood Park Zoo in Jacksonville. Don't miss the Onslow Vietnam Veterans Memorial in the Lejeune Memorial Gardens.
