Surf City Real Estate & Area Information

Research homes for sale in Surf City and learn about what make this community such a great place to live, work, and play.

Some may say that crossing the quaint swing bridge into the sleepy little seaside village of Surf City is like taking a step back in time. Although there are plenty of new businesses including a nice variety of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues, there is still something decidedly old-fashioned about this place. Perhaps it is the slower pace of things or that a few spots like The Crab Shack and the Surf City Pier, shop and restaurant have been here seemingly forever.

Surf City straddles both Pender and Onslow counties and is located on Topsail Island proper. It is home to just around 2,000 permanent residents and is also a popular vacation, boating and fishing destination. Of course, it goes without saying that the beach is just as beautiful here as it is along each end of Topsail!

In addition to being just a short drive from both Wilmington and Jacksonville, due to its close proximity to Highway 17, Surf City is also a pretty convenient place to live. Finding most everything you need is not a problem in this little village that is big on livability. Within a 1 to 5 mile radius from the center of town, you'll find a grocery store, library, schools, public transit, fitness studio, coffee shops, a park, plenty of restaurants (several oceanfront), fish markets, antique shops, fresh produce, apparel shops and two noteworthy bakeries!

Although it is much smaller than the beach communities that surround it, there are still numerous property options in Surf City. Let us know if you're considering new construction, condo living or a classic Carolina cottage and we will be pleased to help you in your search!
