“My favorite spot in Murells Inlet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

We were in the area for a week and went birding every day (sometimes more than once) at Huntington Beach State Park.

Nice boardwalks and a variety of habitats makes it a great place to spend a few hours a day.

The beach itself is broad and very clean. And dogs are allowed which makes it a nice place to take a walk.

“Fabulous place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

We did a Segway tour of the park. The guide was knowledgeable and fun. We had a great time. The weather was perfect and I didn't want to leave. Make sure you spend as much time as you can there, there is so much to do and see.

“Lovely natural areas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I didn't get to see all of it, but I went to the beach and the marsh sections. I saw lots of wild birds in the marsh and was able to get some great photography shots.

“Breathtaking views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

We tried to make it here last year but ran out of time. So glad we decided to go this vacation. The beach view at this park is absolutely breathtaking! Picture perfect. We found the best shells on this beach, a horseshoe crab body shell and a fully intact sea urchin that had washed up on shore. You must visit Atalaya. It was $2 per adult for admission. The courtyard of this unique winter home is simply amazing. There is a salt water marsh ranger station where we saw turtles, fish and got to pet a stingray in their hands on tank. This beach has a little bit of everything for everyone in the family, no matter what age! It is about 16 miles south on Hwy 17 from Long Bay resort. Gas prices were more on the high side in Surfside so try to fill up before you leave Myrtle Beach. It took about 30 mins to get there from the hotel. Well worth the drive. You'll also see many souvenir shops, pharmacies and small restaurants along the way to Huntington.

“Best beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

During the season, they have lifeguards at the the south end. Wide beach, plenty of room. Not crowded except holiday weekends. Atalaya is scenic.
