This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut topographical Map of Topsail Island in Onslow and Pender Counties, North Carolina with the following interesting stats carved into it:

  • Topsail Island is a 26-mile long barrier island off the coast of North Carolina.
  • Topsail Island is a sanctuary for sea turtles and is also known for its beautiful beaches. There are only two ways on and off the island: a swingbridge in Surf City, and high rise bridge in North Topsail Beach.
  • According to popular belief, Topsail Island got its name when 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.

Interesting factoid: Topsail Island is a 26-mile long barrier island off the coast of North CarolinaUSA just south of Camp Lejeune, the Bogue Banks, and the Outer Banks. It contains the communities of North Topsail BeachSurf City and Topsail Beach. Along with its thick maritime forests, Topsail Island is also a sanctuary for sea turtles and known for its beautiful beaches. The island lies in Onslow County in the north, and in 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 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 (Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design).
