Just bought a condo on the mainland at the town of Sunset Beach NC and it looks like we may have a parking problem. The season passes are all sold and signs up and down the beach roads warn about cars being towed or booted. Does anyone know about individual property owners who might allow parking in front of their homes or sell a season pass to me?

Please respond here or send me an IM. Thanks in advance!

I have been going between Ocean Ridge and St James Plantation as possible locations for my retirement in 4 years. I spent a weekend on Sunset Beach this Spring and watched them put those signs up and didn't think much about it. Now it appears that the "island folk" want to keep the place to themselves. I understand it but it makes living on the "main land" less attractive if you don't have free access to the sand "over the bridge".

There is a free parking lot right behind the pier. I park there all of the time. If you are at the beach by 10AM you can usually get a spot with no problems. After 10AM and you usually will have to circle around several times are you can park in the overflow lot. If you do retire at Ocean Ridge, they have the Beach club which is right next to the pier. The Ocean Ridge beach club rarely has all of it's parking spaces full.

It appears that my previous concern was not really a problem after all, at least if you go later in the afternoon. At that time, there always seems to be a space that opens somewhere near the pier, but often it's across the main road back toward the rental agencies.

Sunset Beach still has a problem deciding whether it really wants tourists or not. Their parking signage and attitude towards vacationers is pretty hostile. It's a shame because it has the prettiest beach in the area.
