3 Fun Things to Do with the Kids on Topsail Island


Do you and your family have a trip planned to Topsail Island soon? If the answer is yes, let us share a few fun things you can do with the kids. Staying with us at Saltwater Suites will keep you and your family close to the fun. See below for three fun things you can do with kids on Topsail Island.

Jolly Roger Pier

The Jolly Roger Pier is located on Topsail Island and is the perfect spot to do some local fishing. Here you’ll be able to fish for only $16 per person per day, or if you choose to walk on the pier, it’s only $2 per person. You may even spot a dolphin or a sea turtle at the end of the dock if you’re lucky. Jolly Roger Pier does have different packages that you can choose from. Think of the fun the whole family will have when you visit the pier and have a little fishing fun together!

Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue Center

Another great place that the kids may enjoy is taking them to the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue Center. This rescue & rehabilitation center is in Surf City, but it can’t be missed. Take a guided tour around the Sea Turtle Hospital and see what they do to rescue these beautiful animals. You will even have the chance to adopt a Sea Turtle or a nest which is fantastic if you think about it. They also have a gift shop so that you can take home a souvenir or two to remember your visit.

Hunt for Shark Teeth and Seashells

One of the best things about visiting Topsail Island is getting out on the sand and enjoying the sun. Let the kids hunt for seashells and, even better, shark teeth while you’re spending all day there. Bring a mesh bag with you for each kid so that they can collect pretty seashells, sea glass, or even those teeth. Many remarkable things have been found in the sand, so it may be your turn to find one. What do you think their friends would say if they came home showing their treasure from the beach?

While there are many other things that the kids can do with the whole family on Topsail Island, we wanted to share these. If you haven’t booked your stay with us at Saltwater Suites, now is the time. We can’t wait to hear which your favorite thing was to do with the kids!
