We chose Inlet Point for one simple reason. This is the only place to ride horses and UTVs on the beach during tourist season. There are others that ride trails but we have those in Virginia. We wanted beach and weren't disapointed. Inlet Point is situated on an island and the beach is completely empty. It was a nice change from Myrtle.
We chose to do the whole experience which consisted of the horseride and a UTV ride. My wife has always wanted to horseride on the beach and she loved it. The horses are in great shape and are well mannered. They even had one large enough for me at 210 lbs. We rode on miles of trails and a good 1/2 hour on the beach. I was sore but I'm not a regular rider.
The UTV tour was great. They are currently using Polaris Ranger UTVs and ours was nearly new. We drove ourselves and loosly followed the guide. They allow you to drive as fast as you like and we hit a dozen or so mud holes and dunes. These are not golf cart trails. You will need the 4x4 many times. The ride on the beach was great. These things will hit 40+ on the hard sand. The beach has a ton of shells and we did not see a single person. My wife found some nice sand dollars.
The photographer takes pictures of both the horseride and the UTV ride. We bought a disc with pictures. There were hundreds of shots and good quality.
We will probably go back every year. It seems expensive but for a whole afternoon of fun you can't beat it. Where else can you drive a UTV wide open on the shore? It is a decent drive from Myrtle but its worth it to get away.
