If you’ve always wanted to live in a seaside community, you want to raise a family where commercialism is at a minimum or if your retirement years have arrived and you’re thinking of relocating, then Sunset Beach, North Carolina, is a place you should consider. The town consists of both a mainland community and a barrier island of approximately 1,200 homes. The island of Sunset Beach has an abundance of vacation rental homes and cottages, although there are close to 100 full-time residents as well.

1.    The Weather. Many seasonal vacationers to the area fall in love with the year round temperate weather we have to offer and eventually return to become residents. There’s a lot to be said for the lack of ice, cold and snow we have to offer here as well as the year round outdoor activities.

3.    The Beach. When you live in such a beautiful natural environment, where you can walk for miles along the clean, white sandy beachfront or enjoy a breathtaking sunrise and sunset every day, it really puts things into perspective for you. Leave your cares behind when you relocate here. You’re in for a calmer, more relaxed way of life when you live in a beach community.

4.    The Golf. You won’t have to pack an overnight bag to go play your favorite sport. In fact, purchase a home here and you will be steps away from gorgeous fairways and manicured greens offering some of the best views ever. Three of the larger mainland communities in the Town of Sunset Beach are golf course developments -- Oyster Bay, Sea Trail Resort and Sandpiper Bay.
