Sunset Beach Vacation Gallery Sunbathing Picture is a part of the picture gallery images to help you lighten up.

Sunset Beach is not the famous Hawaiian Island Sunset Beach but it still cann't be beat for a Southern California vacation. Above is an image from our picture gallery to help you lighten up. It began as an actual photograph and was filtered to appear as art. Shown in the image is the Pacific Ocean, two colorful umbrellas sheltering sunbathers, two birds looking at each other, and a few dots in the water that are surfers clinging to their surfboards.

Like its counterpart in Hawaii, this Sunset Beach loves its beaches--and its surfing. Sunset Beach in California is a sunny destination with 3 hotels (2 on the beach side of the street and 1 across the highway overlooking the bay). It includes lots of lovely homes on the sand, many popular bars with live entertainment, restaurants, a gas station, a little post office where residents get their mail, a community center, volunteer fire center, and a community atmosphere along the greenbelt that's the park land for this 1 mile strip of living, sunbathing, vacationing and fun.

When visiting Sunset Beach, you'll need to fly into Long Beach Airport (very close), Orange County Airport or Los Angeles International for those who will be flying in. On a drive, you'll exit the 405 San Diego Freeway at Seal Beach Blvd., and head west toward Seal Beach, or exit the 405 at Bolsa Chica Blvd., then head toward Warner where you'll turn right. Both roads lead to Pacific Coast Highway where Sunset Beach can be accessed.

When booking a trip, the hotels are not fancy. They are value oriented hotels. The three choices are EconoLodge, Ramada, and Best Western (nicest, but not on beach-it's across the street).

When eating, you'll find King Crab, steaks, seafood, Italian, a Brix Wine Bar, Mother's Tavern, Irish Mist, Turcs, etc. There are also breakfast favorites such as Woody's Diner, and across the street at Peter's Landing is Starbucks.

Romance abounds at Sunset Gondola where you can ride in an authentic gondola around the bay and harbor. The gondoliers can also arrange to drop off or pick you up from Captain Jack's restaurant.
