Topsail Island
 
Topsail Island is a 26-mile barrier island just off the coast of North Carolina, an Outer Banks community. It contains North Topsail Beach, Surf City and Topsail Beach. Along with its thick maritime forests, Topsail Island is also is a sanctuary for sea turtles and known for its beautiful beaches. The island lies in two counties: Onslow County in the north and Pender County in the south. There are only two ways on and off the island: the first is a high rise bridge on the North End and the second is a swing bridge that brings you into Surf City. Topsail Island's name is supposedly derived from its nefarious history, however, this is still debatable among the locals on the Island. According to popular belief, pirates used to hide in the channel between the island and the mainland waiting for merchant ships loaded with goods to pass. The pirates would attack the ships and claim the cargo as their own. Eventually the merchants became aware of the hiding place and began looking for the topsail, which was supposedly the only part of the pirate ship that could be seen by the passing 'victim. There is a legend that Blackbeard hid his treasure on Topsail Island and that prior to WWII, treasure hunters searched for the hidden gems and gold throughout the islands' maritime forests.
