"The Last of the unspoiled family beaches?" Sunset Beach by VA_Dave
Sunset Beach Travel Guide: 7 reviews and 21 photos
When I was growing up in Virginia, we use to go to unspoiled beaches Atlantic coast beaches, but most are very built up and commercial now.
But there is one perfect one left: Sunset Beach located between North and South Carolina.
No condos or high rises, just cottages. No boardwalk, just a couple of convenience stores.
A perfect hideaway to go with friends and family.
There is an old drawbridge linking Sunset Beach with the mainland, and there are plans
to replace it with a monstrosity of a concrete bridge. I fear that will be the end on this
eden. So better visit while you can.
My favorite activites:
1. Trek to the wildlife preserve on the adjacent Bird Island and read the Kindred Spirit jounal entries and maybe leave some of your own thoughts.
2. Get up a dawn and kayak or canoe through the marshes to the intra coastal waterway.
There are birds everywhere and you can drift right up to them. It you go past the
draw bridge you can sometimes draft up to herd of small wild goats on Bird Island.
3. Build the ultimate sand castle - my specialty is the Eiffel Tower.
