July 14, 2020 – Important Notice About Community Pools

All “community pools” are managed by HOAs.  In normal times, all the pools would be open and operating at full capacity.  These are not normal times. 

The “phase” of reopening is a fluid issue and has an effect on whether pools are open at all as well as whether they are open but on a REDUCED occupancy mandate. Please modify your expectation accordingly.  Please do not rely completely on any information you get from any source.  All information is, at best, a snapshot of today’s circumstance.  

Many bars, restaurants, and attractions are operating at reduced capacity, hours, and staff. Be advised.

We hope your stay with us on majestic Topsail Island will be as magnificent and satisfying as you had ever hoped in your best dreams and imaginations.
