We thoroughly enjoyed our brief visit. Flew a kite on the beach...such a pretty area, free from commercialization and private condos. Not too crowded at sunset. Cool breezes, the ocean...what could be better?! The drive out was also beautiful. We caught some really great sunset pics crossing the bridge.

This park is great, lots of herons, egrets, cormorants, alligators, and most exciting, painted buntings! The beach is beautiful, nice white sand and clean. We took a look at the campgrounds for future and will probably be back to camp!

Dog Friendly and family friendly. Beautiful beach & sunrise. Long walk to end of jetty worth the effort. Great RV/tent sites.

It has to be one of the best beaches in South Carolina. 2 and 1/2 miles of unspoiled beach and it is far enough from Myrtle Beach that it never gets crowded.

You would want to use de beach for sure but do not miss the visite of the Atalaya "house". House of a scultress. Across the road (highway 17) , you must visit the Brookgreen garden.

A nice park for a range of activities. We visited Atalaya which was very interesting, but also visited the beach and walked the various paths.
