Sunset-Beach is located in north Orange County between Huntington Beach and Seal Beach. Less well known than its neighboring communities, Sunset Beach offers small town charm and a mile long stretch of beautiful white sand beach. There are ample opportunities for outdoor activities in Sunset Beach, such as swimming, surfing, windsailing, kite flying, volleyball, roller blading and bicycling. Sunset Beach is also a good place to simply sit and relax and watch the ocean because it is generally less crowded than other nearby southern California beaches. In wintertime, you can sometimes walk the beach and see no one. The community of Sunset Beach holds an annual art festival, chili cookoff, and a mile long garage sale! There are lots of family owned restaurants and businesses in Sunset Beach and along the Pacific Coast Highway, which is the main road passing through town. Many of the homes in Sunset Beach are situated on sand beaches, and several hotels offer splendid ocean views and on-site beaches. You can base your southern California vacation at Sunset Beach and be just one hour south of Los Angeles International Airport, and minutes from such famous attractions as Disneyland, Malibu and Catalina Island.
