Sunset Beach Island

(Current Properties “For Sale” on Sunset Beach Island)

It’s the “last” beach in NC as you head southward. Tucked in the corner of Long Bay as the coast turns back north-to-south from the east-to-west course the Brunswick County Beaches all lie upon, Sunset Beach is remarkable in many ways.

It has an unusually wide strand, the result of its being one of a very few NC beaches that generally builds up, or accretes. Many face on-going erosion problems, but not Sunset Beach, and its sand is white and a pleasure to walk on! It has also been a favorite beach of environmentalists who feel it has not been over-developed.

Like nearby Ocean Isle Beach, commercial areas have been kept to a minimum. You’ll find mostly single family structures, with very few condominiums. Real estate affordability has likewise improved on Sunset Beach, as well.

Sunset Beach is unlike Ocean Isle in that it does have considerably more mainland area that is also part of the Town, so incorporated since 1963. A few neighborhoods comprising this sector are Sea Trail Plantation, Sandpiper Bay, Cape Side, and Wyndfall. Home prices range from modest to higher-end…there’s something to fit almost everyone’s budget here.

Golf is a big draw for both Sunset Beach and Ocean Isle Beach. You can find more than a dozen courses within a ten minute drive of either location; some of the best in the Carolinas!

Connected to the mainland for decades by a floating pontoon “swing bridge”, designed and built by its founding father, Mannon Gore, the island has maintained a retro feeling through-out the years. Many were saddened when the old bridge was replaced by a high-rise span at the end of 2010, however, the views from the new bridge surpass spectacular and the community continues to exude its unstressed atmosphere.

Sunset Beach remains one of the best-kept secrets of coastal North Carolina!
