Across the street on Pacific Coast Highway that runs the length of the town is Sunset Island, part of the town's land. And it is located to Huntington Beach's Huntington Harbour with five manmade islands, including several that are accessible from Sunset Beach.
The name of Sunset Beach (California) was once used in a soap opera. The place is real but the show was fictionally set in this community. There were no actual places portrayed in the soap opera existing in the REAL Sunset Beach. Nevertheless, it made for great chatter for those who visited from around the globe, hoping to find that dream town. What they found upon arrival was quite different, but every bit as interesting and and alluring. Sunset Beach is the town that dreams are made of.
