The beauty of the light house , getting the right picture with the perfect time of day in the horizon, my favorite is strolling down the beach picking up shells and looking in the little water holes looking...

the contrast of entry forest road to forever beach is so good ... seldom crowded, very relaxing ... 20 minutes from my home allowing weekly visits ... hiking trails are well marked; fishing pond nearby ... everything a beach goer desires ... south beach is totally non commercial, north beach has lighthouse open for visitation and has quite a view...

Hunting island state park is a tremendous asset for Beaufort county and South Carolina. It is by far the best state park in SC. The beach is most of the time calm and very family friendly. The hiking trails an nature center are also great.

Beautiful State park with a beautiful beach. This is pristine so no lounge chairs or umbrellas for rent. Really a trip in nature that would make Disney jealous

This beach truly is a pretty beach. It certainly isn't a very big area, but it is well kept and the restrooms are clean and convenient. I have a huge issue with the price, however. I'm used to having to pay a little for parking, but enjoying the beach shouldn't break the bank. It's nice to visit, and the lighthouse... More

Hunting Island State Park is a beautiful place. Soft white sand beach, beautiful hiking/biking trails, a nature center, fishing pier, and a board walk into the marsh behind the island. There is also a light house to climb and a concession house for items you may have forgotten to pack. There is also a large camp ground that is open... More

This beach is phenomenal! My boys could play there all day long! My grand baby loved the water and the sand. She crawled TOWARDS the surf! It's fun to see a live sand dollar for the first time in my life!!
