Want to Visit One of the Top Beaches in the World?
Stunning white sands. Beaches made up of black volcanic ash. Pearly whiteness made up of nothing but polished shells. What constitutes the perfect beach to you? Maybe instead, it is one that contains stunning colored fish just off shore for you to indulge in when you snorkel. Or a beach of fossilized shells and organisms from the time that dinosaurs roamed the earth.
Whatever your personal preferences, some beaches are just better than others. Which is why National Geographic put together a list of the top 21 beaches in the entire world! And guess which beach made the list, in spot number four? Why, Sunset Beach of course! Granted, we already knew it was on of the best beaches in the world, but it is nice to have corroboration of that fact.
A Beach of Soulful Solitude
In National Geographic’s article, 21 Best Beaches in the World, the top 21 beaches are broken down into categories. 7 to be precise. The categories are: Geological Wonders, Soulful Solitudes, Shell Seekers, Canine Companions, Tinted Toes, Snorkelers, and Dune Walkers. They put Sunset Beach in the Soulful Solitude category. Which makes complete sense.
Sunset Beach is a paradise of calm in a crazy, fast paced world. A beautiful oasis on the southern tip of North Carolina’s glorious coast. Here you will find soft, shifting sand that begs you to bury your toes in it. This sand is broken up by reeds in places, creating perfect picturesque vistas. You will be mesmerized by the scenes unfolding before you, torn between whipping out your camera and just soaking up the serenity of the scene before you. A sense of peace will wash over you, ebbing in with the tide as the sun sets below the horizon, casting myriad deep and soothing hues into the rhythmic ocean. You might be surprised to find yourself gazing out into the rippling horizon for over an hour, lost in thought or just enjoying not thinking at all but simply soaking up beauty.
Bring the Beach Home With You
We do that too infrequently now, simply soaking up beauty. Our lives are a swirl of anxiety, fueled by our crammed to-do lists, our children’s after-school activities that they need help with or transportation to, as well as our own social calendars. We all feel within us a deep-seated need for relaxation. For more beauty in our lives. We long to enjoy our daily activities more. To enjoy each moment more. But we have to pack so much into our schedules, that we can rarely just stop and savor the moment. It’s time to remedy that, don’t you think so?
Sunset Beach is just the place to regain our ability to savor every moment! A trip to the Kindred Spirit Mailbox, referenced in the National Geographic article, will help you ease your focus off of all your real and perceived problems and instead shift it onto other people's hopes, and dreams, and secrets. Which is an excellent remedy for stress and anxiety.
To us, and to all who visit, Sunset Beach is more than just a beach. It is a remedy for anxiety. The balm that soothes a harried soul. The solution to our seeming inability to savor a single moment without thinking about our schedules. Sunset Beach is a way of life. It gets into your blood, and when you leave the beach itself you end up carrying a bit of it with you in your heart as you go around your daily business at home. You find yourself much more relaxed, even taking on less tasks and eliminating some things from your to-do list. A smile lights up your face, and a song as beautiful as a sunrise wends its way through your heart.
So, come to Sunset Beach, stay awhile for a vacation, and take a piece of it away with you. Soak up soulful solitude and turn your own life into an oasis of calm. We can’t wait to help you on your quest for constant inner peace!
