Coming to Topsail Island during the fall means the crowds have dropped tremendously and you can actually enjoy the beach a little more.

And let’s talk about the traffic which will be less than the summer meaning it won’t take you long to get anywhere on the island.
The weather in the fall are so much better for enjoying the beach and the water. With the average temps being around 80 degrees and above in September. And in October being around 70 degrees with the water temperatures being around the 75-degree mark. This only means that you can still sit on the beach, soak up the sun and go for a swim while you are visiting the area. The humidity calms down some during the fall as well which means you will be able to see the bright greens and blues in the water. And the colors are so vibrant against the sunrises and sunsets that you must take pictures and share them with your friends and family!
Fishing is the best time for you to try to fish on the island. While the crowds are gone, it only means that you can take advantage of surf fishing. Now while you will need to get a permit if you don’t have one for the on the NC Wildlife website. You can also visit several local retailers to purchase one as well. And if you don’t want to try your hand at surf fishing but want to enjoy it off one of the piers, you will be able to purchase your fishing license there as well.
