Things to Do in Sunset Beach

Sunset Beach's highlights are no doubt the sandy coastlines. Sunset Beach Park itself is a serene and tranquil place to relax, bordered by vast areas of greenery and walking trails.

Browse knick-knacks and quirky souvenirs over at the Sunset Beach Waterfront Market or tread along the coast to the Bald Head Island Beach.

Best Time to Visit Sunset Beach

The summer months are the best time to visit Sunset Beach in order to enjoy the hottest temperatures perfect for beach-going.

A Local's Guide to Sunset Beach

Lined with pristine white beaches, Sunset Beach is a unique town that encompasses both mainland North Carolina and barrier island terrain. The city has a lot to offer, but most people enjoy spending their time here on its stunning beach strand and relax in the warm summer climate.

Bird Island is a small patch of parades that can be reached by walking along the seashore on Sunset Beach to the reserve’s boundary. With natural sand dunes, tidal creeks and beautiful salt marshes, it is a nature-lovers dream. This natural ecosystem spans an impressive 1,300 acres, and visitors to the area can explore the flora and fauna on a guided walking tour. The biggest draw to the reserve tends to be the loggerhead sea turtles, and sightings are not uncommon.

There are also many golf courses in the vicinity of Sunset Beach NC. There are several that particularly stand out, such as the Sea Trail Golf Resort and Convention Center, the Legends’ Oyster Bay course and Byrd God Course. All offer some challenging holes for a full day out of fun.

An ideal way to unwind is to head to the secluded Bald Head Island Beach, which is a stunning spot of coast that runs for 15 miles. The journey to this beach is an adventure in itself, as you can park your car and take the mainland ferry across. Ditching the car for the day is a great way to really immerse yourself in nature, and when on the island you can hire a bike or a golf cart to get around. There are a wide variety of flora and fauna to be found here, and nature-lovers will take pleasure in spotting the various birds and plants that make the marshy land their home. It is also worth checking out Sunset Beach Park itself. The park offers stunning views of the ocean, fishing spots on the pier and a sea trail that winds its way around the waters. The park is also host to the Sunset Beach Waterfront Market where you can pick up a souvenir to take home.

The towns of Ocean Isle beach and Myrtle Beach are just a short drive away and make for a refreshing day trip, especially if you want to take in all the coastline that Sunset Beach has to offer. Another great day trip is to the Ingram Planetarium, a fascinating museum that opens throughout the year. The science hall in the museum has some cool features that are especially popular with children, such as a hurricane simulator, as well as laser light musical shows.

Sunset Beach North Carolina has a wide array of vacation homes. Located just five-minutes from the town is Sandpiper Bay, home to many Sunset Beach vacation rentals and properties. The homes offer an array of features and make the perfect base for exploring the coast. Alternatively, stay at one of the many Sunset Beach properties right in the heart of town, and be within walking distance to the hub of shops, restaurants and nightlife. A beach vacation rental will mean that you can step out of your front door almost directly onto the sand, an option that is especially popular in the summer months.
