9 On Your Side is finishing out our month of Living Local with a trip to the beach, the town of North Topsail Beach to be exact.
In North Topsail, there are miles and miles of uncrowded sandy beaches, providing the perfect getaway for residents in surrounding towns and cities.
“It’s not overpopulated,” said Lori Mayer, a Jacksonville resident. “It’s so calm, and it’s not commercialized. We just love coming here. It’s a little piece of Heaven on Earth.”
In addition to sandy beaches, the town offers the perfect fishing spot at the Jolly Roger Fishing Pier.
If you have a boat, you can set sail from the Bush Marina.
Ramp permits are available all week long.
