Location and Amenities of Topsail Shores
Topsail Shores is a premier location that is nearly surrounded by water. Bodies of water found near the subdivision include Chadwick Bay, Stump Sound, the New River Inlet – and of course, the Atlantic Ocean.
Looking more closely at the community, you'll see that some homes are located on a cul-de-sac, while others are free-standing homes located on the Tidal Pond. Due to the proximity to the ocean, the land is sandy. At the end of River Road in Topsail Shores is a large public beach access with a huge white beach. This particular location is where the water from the New River dumps into the Atlantic Ocean, which makes for great fishing and brilliant views.
If you drive South down New River Inlet Road toward Island Drive, and then follow Island Drive South for a few miles, you will eventually reach Surf City. Surf City is the main spot for entertainment, dining and shopping on Topsail Island, although there are great restaurants and things to do all along Topsail Island and in neighboring Sneads Ferry.
Residents, vacationers, and long-term renters in Topsail Shores love the breathtaking views of both marsh and ocean, as well as the peace and quiet afforded by the lack of commercialization in this area. However, they appreciate the proximity of their neighborhood to shopping, dining and entertainment. If you want a little more excitement, you can head North on Island Drive/NC Hwy 210, go back over the high rise bridge, and make your way to Jacksonville or Wilmington, where you’ll find many more popular chain restaurants and retailers.
