Crabbing is easy, fun, and cheap. It takes almost no equipment to go crabbing (ask any local) or stop in one of our local bait and tackle shops. You find lots of great information and friendly folks within the local crabbing community. This is one Topsail Island tradition everyone must try.
3. Watch the sunset or sunrise
There is something beautiful and relaxing about watching a sunrise or sunset on the beach. Luckily, during your vacation you can do both. Take a day and enjoy one of the most incredibly moving experiences on the beach as the world is bathed in its first light. Later take the time to sit on the beach with your loved one, or maybe just alone and watch the sunset. We promise you’ll be in love with the beach forever.
4. Try a new dish
Let’s face it, when you are at the beach it is all about the seafood. However, many people have never really tried fresh seafood. Of course, you don't have to only try seafood, step out of the box and try anything new and different. This year, cross off that bucket list and have the shrimp and grits, Pad Thai, or a Calzone you always wanted to order. No matter what you want to try, we either have a restaurant in the area serving it, or you can take advantage of your well-appointed kitchen in your vacation home. Either way, now is the time to try something new.
