Huntington Beach is not only a great place for walking trails, exploring the gorgeous architecture of Atalaya castle and camping, it’s also a great spot to spend a day at the beach.
Located just across from Brookgreen Gardens, south of Murrells Inlet and North of Pawleys Island, visitors will catch a glimpse of the area’s beauty as soon as they enter the park.
Here you’ll see in inland lake and swamp area that’s full of wildlife and has become a sanctuary for bird watchers in the area.
Once you wind your way back to the beach itself, you can easily find a pristine place for setting up your beach gear and enjoy the beautiful weather all day long — though some say the best time to visit is in the early morning when the beach become prime real estate for shelling.
Because the park is managed by the state, there is a small admission fee of $5 for adults, $3.25 for Seniors and $3 for youths (age 6-15). Children age 5 or younger are free.
