Topsail Beach also has an interesting history behind it. It is believed that in the 1700s, the channel behind the island was a popular hiding place for pirates on the prowl. Unseen by the passing merchant ships, the pirates would attack them and loot the cargo. Once the merchants realized this, they started keeping a watch for the tops of the pirates’ sails showing over the rolling dunes, which gave the island its legendary name.
