sunset beach: Why choose Sunset Beach, North Carolina? - 11/20/12 09:03 PM
Why choose Sunset Beach,North Carolina?
Sunset Beach is known as a quiet and peaceful town with a beach that is small in comparison to others expanding three miles with a multitude of wooden pathways over the picturesque sand dunes.


You won't find high rise condos on the beach, just a few shops for beach supplies, kayak and  bicycle rentals and the necessities like ice cream.


If you like canoeing, kayaking and bird watching, this is the place to be. Lots of peaceful marshes and the Intracoastal Waterway to enjoy.

Spend the day riding your bicycle … (9 comments)

Going Green ~>
Solar Trash Compactors at Sunset BeachSunset Beach is Going Green with their Solar Trash Compactors located in the Gazebo parking lot at the beach. 

The Sunset Beach Solar Trash Compactors work by compacting the refuse and then, through sophisticated software, signal the Sunset Beach Public Works Department when the units need to be emptied. The compaction reduces the bulk volume of items to about one-fourth of non-compacted material. The Sunset Beach Solar Trash Compactors will result in cost savings in manpower, fuel, and wear and tear on equipment as well as removing material … (21 comments)

Sunset Beach, North Carolina is a Paradise that is a well kept secret Having lived here for almost nine years I have found Sunset Beach, North Carolina to be a Paradise that is a well kept secret.
Locals want to keep the Sunset Beach area to themselves and most were not happy when the last authentic pontoon swing bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway was replaced by a modern high rise bridge.


The weather is a perfect reason to visit with temperatures rarely below freezing or above the 90's. The average temperature in the winter months is in … (14 comments)
