North Topsail Beach is located in Topsail North Carolina. The beach is dog-friendly for pooches on leashes and is relatively quiet. The small town of Topsail also has a marina for boats and other great attractions close by.
The beach boasts beautiful sunsets and sunrises, and is a great place for a walk or to learn a bit more about history. This beach has unique tie-ins to World War II. You can visit the Missiles and More Museum to take a walk in history. The area is also well known for its fishing and, as legend has it, might have tie-ins to early pirates. Couple that with surfing, sunbathing, 4x4 driving, and much more - there’s definitely something for everyone.
As far as the rules for your dog go, as mentioned, your pup must be on a leash. The beach also requires that the leash is attached to a harness or collar. The leash that you’re using may also only retract up to 25 feet. It is key for you to keep control of your dog at all times and not allow them to get into any trouble. It’s also very important to remember that the beach is a shared space, and you must clean up after your dog.
The rules also include a note about making sure your dog is never, ever left in a car alone. They take this so seriously, you can be charged with a violation if you do this to your dog. They also warn that if you don’t follow the leash rules or you do not pick up after your dog, there is a $100 fine. So, keep that in mind if you decide to visit. Don’t forget the poop bags, food, and water for your pup! They need to stay well fed and hydrated to have the best time possible.
