My family, including 2 1/2 grandson visited Hunting Island on Good Friday. It was a beautiful sunny afternoon. My grandson loved digging in the sand and playing at the edge of the water. There were people swimming but the water was a little too cold for us. While the parking lot was nearly full, the beach is so big that... More

we came to the park looking for shells and sand dollars. That was a bust. We hiked along several trails and then took one that led us to the beach. Lots of erosion and downed trees. These make for interesting photos. We climbed the lighthouse. The hosts are friendly and knowledgeable. The views at the top are worth the climb.... More

We went this week with our dog. You enter via a long narrow, winding, one lane road through a tropical forrest and it cost us $5 each to get in. The beach was long and deep, waves minimal as compared with, say, Nags Head or further North. They have a nice visitor center with restrooms, a pond with a sometimes... More

I get a nature call at least 3 times a week! I have lived in Beaufort for 1 1/2 years! Hunting Island is my most favorite place to be! So much to do all day long! Nature will call you back after only one visit.πŸ‹πŸŸπŸŠπŸ‘πŸšπŸ™πŸ¬πŸ πŸ³

Very wide beaches---especially at low tide---DUH!!---clean and tidy---park office/museum, parking lots and beaches. intriguing how the beach has eroded and built up varying areas of the beach and seeing photo of lighthouse that once was on land is now an island unto itself!!

We stayed for 3 nights and were absolutely amazed at the beautiful, remote tropical setting and endless natural beach!!! Our campsite was surrounded by Spanish Moss, pine and various Palm trees!! We saw many deer walking through the park. Just watch out for the abundant raccoons at night...put away all food/coolers in your car or trailer!! The beach was very... More

I bought a book that listed several "off-the-beaten-path" places to visit and this was one of the places listed. Since I was going to Savannah, I figured a quick detour might be worth it and boy was I right. Entering the park is like going back to prehistoric times. It felt like I was in Jurassic Park. The trails are... More
