Off season is a great time to have the beach almost entirely to yourself. It was cold while we were there, but the unexpected wildlife was a plus.

On a recent Christmas beach getaway, we walked on the beach several times. It is very clean with many points of public access. It is dog friendly and we saw many dogs while we were there. This is our favorite beach because it is rarely sees the crowds of other SC beaches and is very pretty.

Beautiful beach that never seems to be too crowded. Nice bath facilities. We looked for several years to find the right combination of beach, restaurants, and activities. Litchfield Beach is tucked away from Myrtle Beach but with all the access you could want.

Litchfield beach is a nice place to visit without all the tourists. Nice for running or just walking along the beach.

Dolphins are regularly seen, through late fall. We walk the beach at low tide every day ( weather permitting) and always find beautiful shells - sea urchins, sand dollars, etched... More
