“Solitude”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2012

The beach here is lovely, deserted especially in winter. Lots of wildlife and nature. On a pretty winter's day, one can walk for miles or lie in the sunshine and read or write; photographer's dream!

“Winter house Atalaya”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Myrtle Beach area has limited historical sites, this one is worth the drive even thoug I thought the entry fee to the park was a bit pricey for a recreational area, $5 per person. We went on a windy day which was the first mistake, you couldn't walk on the beach long without becoming uncomfortable. There was not much to see on the beach and the marsh area was having a "salt" issue so the alligators had relocated so we didn't get to see them. We did pay the $1 fee extra to view the Moorish style house, we waited around for the guided tour, our guide Joan did a very good job portraying the life of Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington.

Very clean and beautiful beach. Nice nature trail. Great place to spend the day away from Myrtle Beach.

“This is a great, almost private, beach area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012 via mobile

This is great place to just go to the beach. The parking is quick and easy. The crowds are thin. Also, you are surrounded by a state park so there is other nature to see. I like places where you can picnic, and this is a great place for it. If you are staying or living in the area this is one of the best ways to "go to the beach". Enjoy.
