DIRECTIONS TO SUNSET BEACH
Sunset Beach is located in Southeastern North Carolina. It is the last Island in North Carolina. The island is about 7 miles off of U.S. 17 at Highway 904. Coming from the North turn Left on to 904 (from the South turn Right). Take 904 to the second traffic light (roughly 4 miles from the intersection with U.S. 17). Turn right and follow the signs to Sunset Beach. The bridge onto the island is approximately 2 more miles. At the circle take the Mannon Gore bridge, 1 more mile to Main St.
THE BEAUTIFUL BEACH in NORTH CAROLINA
Sunset Beach, formally known as Bald Beach, is the southernmost island in North Carolina. The island was purchased in 1955 by Mannon C. Gore from the Brooks family, which dates its ownership back to the 1700's. Mannon Gore, a farmer by trade, possessed vast skills in the bridge building and dredging business. Using these skills, Mr. Gore began his vision of Sunset Beach by designing and building the causeway and the first pontoon swing bridge onto the island. Mr. Gore also built the original Vesta Pier on the island named after a civil war blockade runner that now rests buried in the sand beside the present Sunset Beach pier. Property sales began in 1958 and Sunset Beach has grown in every way since. To aid Mannon Gore, his son Edward M. Gore, Sr. joined the business in the late 1950's. Together they successfully developed and shaped the island into what the island is today. As the amazing island's beaches grow in size, we continue to maintain the easy feeling of yesterdays when times were simpler.
This home has been family owned for more than 40 years. One of the original homes built on the West End Oceanfront in 1972. Built by Mr. Watcher & lovingly cared for till we fell in love with this home in October 15, 2008. We have had a New & Committed Love for this home.

PEACE & QUITE
Sunset Beach is well known for its Family Friendly environment. I had the pleasure to encounter some bike riders. They were open about their desire to stay in Sunset Beach. ”It’s quite”, they said.
