Sunset Beach is located on a barrier island in the Coastal Carolina region. The town is situated on half of the barrier island while Bird Island State Reserve is located on the other half, making Sunset Beach a beautiful seaside resort. For renters who want that “vacation” feeling all the time, a Sunset Beach apartment delivers.
Bird Island State Reserve is an uninhabited beach that made Yahoo’s list of the “World’s Most Unusual Beaches” in 2012. This wild stretch of beach is beautiful, untamed, and a haven for birds and wildlife. In the middle of it all, miles from civilization, visitors will find a lone mailbox. The mailbox was set up in 1981 by a local resident who was upset over a proposed land development deal. Visitors used the pencils and paper inside to write pleas to save the island. It worked, and today the mailbox holds letters left by visitors to the island, with topics ranging from daydreams to tales of lost love.
When you’ve rented an apartment in Sunset Beach, you’ll enjoy great attractions, such as the Museum of Coastal Carolina and the Ingram Planetarium. You’ll be able to shop at the nearby Holden Brothers Farm Market and attend great events, such as the NC Festival by the Sea, the North Carolina Oyster Festival, and the Sunset at Sunset Festival.
