Additional Location Information

Moondance is located on Island Drive, in the town of North Topsail Beach, on Topsail Island -- a 26-mile long barrier island located between Wilmington NC (35 miles south) and Jacksonville NC (20 miles north).

There are three towns on Topsail Island:
Surf City (middle) est. 1948
Topsail Beach (southern) est. 1963
North Topsail Beach (northern) est. 1990

Two bridges access the island. A swing bridge in Surf City, and a high-rise bridge that connects North Topsail Beach to the mainland (Sneads Ferry area).

There is a single major north/south road running the entire length of the island for around 21.5 miles, with side streets to the ocean and/or to the Intracoastal Waterway. Occasionally there is a road that parallels the major north/south road on wider areas of the island.
There is a wonderful book by Ray McAllister on the history of the island called Topsail Island: Mayberry By The Sea. Visit for more information.

Moondance is close to a lot of diverse activities in and around North Topsail Beach. You are just minutes away from a Golf Digest 4-star rated golf course, Triple J Stables, Jungle Rapids Family Fun Park, Fishing Charters, City Parks, Historic Wilmington, Battleship North Carolina, Airlie Gardens, Duplin Winery, North Carolina Aquarium, and a lot more.
