Sunset Beach Boat Ramp and Floating Docks next to the new Sunset Beach Bridge. NC Wildlife Resources Commission built the ramp using its funds along with some from the Town of Sunset Beach and Brunswick County. To avoid disturbing the Waterway more than the entrance to the old bridge did for 50 year, the ramp was built upon the footprint of the roadway leading to the old bridge. The parking lot has 26 spaces for vehicles with trailers. The Boat Ramp and an adjacent Fishing Pier were dedicated 06/29/12.

This is the boat ramp. Construction has not been completed. An L-shaped floating dock will be built on the right.
Here is the plan for the project:
