We just bought a condo in the area and we headed to Sunset Beach for what else, sunset. We went a few times and loved every second of it. Great for picnics and just taking in the beauty of the Gulf Coast.

Free parking, nice beach, it is a great place to pop over to and watch mother nature do her magic. I have hundreds of photos from here, none the same. Families, locals, vacationers, and everyone leaves at sunset....nice local secret spot

Sunset Beach has lots of pavilions for picnics and has beautiful sunsets. The beach itself is fine for laying in the sun but not very good for swimming except for small kids because it is very shallow for a long way out. It is great for small children because it's so shallow and there are no waves. The parking is... More

A nice big white sandy beach perfect for watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. No parking fee and plenty of space to park

Just down the road from Howard Park and more of an inland beach. Small and quaint, offering seclusion and tranquility. Picnic areas, bathroom and changing facilities available. A quiet oasis.

I had no chocie but to put my boat in the water here and hated it. Nothing to tie up to once it's in the water so you can't do it alone. Once your boat is in there are no markers to follow on how to navigate through VERY shallow water! At one point I was in 13 inches with... More

Sunset beach has always been the wife and I's favorite place to come and unwind. It's a great beach. Plenty of elbow room with lots of sun or shade. It has the best sunset view of any beach we have visited around the West coast of Florida. We have been away for a couple of years. We had some friends... More
