Very clean and beautiful park! We saw tons of birds and even 4-5 alligators! Very cool experience, without a ton of tourists. There is beach access and an historic home with tours available. It is a small fee ($5) for parking but if you go with a SC state resident who has a pass its free!

My son and his fiancé chose Huntington Beach Park as the place for their summer wedding! There are no words to describe how beautiful this wedding was! The sand was gorgeous, the surf just right, and the ease our family had finding the Park all resulted in a very happy occasion! With over 2000 weddings a year, I can understand... More

We loved our time on the beach here. Few people and gorgeous backdrop with no commercialized landscape to take away from the natural surrounding beauty. Atalaya was a fun place to walk through and imagine the life of the Huntingtons. Great place.

Our home offered a pass to the park and we took the grandchildren. Such a nice place for families to enjoy the beach.

The wildlife in this park was amazing. The migratory birds where special including some pink colored spoon bills. The scenery was spectacular with ponds, lakes and marshes with attractive boardwalks that give you special vantage points within the park. Last, but certainly not least was the ability to see alligators in their natural habitat. They are best seen in the... More

What a wonderful, inexpensive place to spend a few hours away from all the Myrtle Beach "noise". Leisurely walks on well maintained, level trails. Lots of overlooks and photo opps .Atalaya House was wonderful as well. Did the self guided tour and learned much on my own. Would probably stayed for a guided tour, but it was a few hours... More

Large state park with ample parking and changing/restrooms. We enjoyed our Sunday at the beach. Beach was clean and not crowded. A mixture of young, old, families and couples enjoying the warm SC water. The fee to get into the park was nominal and totally worth it. Will go back!!

Came for a short visit with family and will definitely be back! This place is just gorgeous, much less crowded than some other beaches in the area and has a nice family atmosphere. There are lots of fun things to do here, but those will have to wait until our next visit because we couldn't tear ourselves away from their... More
