Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach, the southernmost beach of the Brunswick beaches, stretches three miles long. One of the most notable features, the one-lane pontoon bridge, remains a favorite tradition for both visitors and locals. Many say that Sunset Beach bridge, which straddles the salty marshes and Intracoastal Waterway, provides a glaring contrast to the ever-booming growth affecting other beach communities along North Carolina’s coast. As the only pontoon bridge along the entire East Coast, it serves as bragging rights to those who enjoy the tranquil and laid back atmosphere that the bridge helps to maintain. Yet the wooden structure only allows for one lane of traffic at any time and can cause issues for those trying to get on or off the island.

While devoid of much of the commercialism seen in coastal areas such as the Grand Strand, there are many restaurants serving various types of delicious cuisine. Visitors and locals alike find everything they need within a short drive off the island toward Calabash or Ocean Isle Beach. It is the ideal location to spend time with family and friends and offers numerous types of activities for everyone. Shoppers will love the many specialty shops scattered along the area while golfers will enjoy the many championship golf courses in close proximity to the island. For a family day of golfing, try to master the putt-putt golf course and enjoy your favorite ice cream from the inside shop.

If you enjoy the adventure of spending a day on the water, there are a myriad of options available to suit your desires. A full service fishing pier can provide hours of endless entertainment as well as many wonderful memories. Or take a kayak trip to discover the maritime life along the Intracoastal Waterway. When low time comes, you might enjoy a walk to Bird Island; or if you plan to enjoy a day trip there, just make sure that you have looked at the tide charts to plan your return trip. No matter what you enjoy, the year-round mild temperatures coupled with the many options keep both residents and visitors happy no matter what the season.

Sunset Beach’s continuous growth in both people and properties comes as no surprise to those who live in the beautiful coastal area. Yet the addition doesn’t detract from the small-town feel and southern hospitality embodied by this charming community. Its ideal location between Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Wilmington, North Carolina attracts many who want to live the coastal lifestyle without the crowds, bumper-to-bumper traffic or bright neon lights. The peace and serenity of this south-eastern region has a resonance that will last for many more years to come.
