    Take the $5 audio tour and you will know a lot of details about this unique place. Each stop on the audio tour is only about 30-45 seconds so you aren't overwhelmed with information but you still learn a lot about the history of the place. Go to the Atalaya Castle, do the audio tour, then go to the beach and camp out if you can, and enjoy the surrounding communities!

    Recently had a lesson with Scott Devaux from Steve DresserGolf . He walked about 6 holes together. He gave me some great tips and helped reinforced the things I did well and coached me to make some changes to improved my swing. Got the videos he took with additional pointers. Well worth it!! Can't wait to put these tips to use and see Scott again next year!

    We weren't able to go in but could see in the windows. Lovely church, lots of natural light. Serene and peaceful cemetery surrounding it.

    If you prefer getting away from the busyness of Myrtle Beach, this is a great place! Our family preferred the Pawley's Island area, as it had that sleepy, vacation island feel, and it was away from the chaos. The only downfall is that we didn't see any public restrooms or rinse off stations when leaving the beach (hence the 4 stars). It's only a short drive to the Walgreens across the marsh if you need to use the restroom or get some beach supplies. The little historic district is quaint and nice that it gives the history of the island.

    This gallery features the works of several professional artists from throughout the United States. It is upscale and the pieces are really very well done. Currently they are featuring two sculptors with outstanding bronze figures. There are wonderful paintings - some very large which are also very well done. The gallery represents about 8 artists and it is well worth the visit - you may easily succumb and purchase!

    This is a really lovely home converted into gallery, featuring several local artists who have very varied styles and mediums. Had a chance to chat with one of the owners who has her art displayed as well. Some very unique techniques are represented. If you like viewing art work you should consider visiting this gallery.

    Our son and now daughter in law were married there. Towards sunset, the tide was in and the sun setting was perfect for pictures. The chapel is small but in pandemic times, it was the right size for our small gathering.

    We have not been to the new location in Georgetown. The original museum in Pawleys Island was worth a visit. Really depends on your interest level of Gullah history.

    This is a great tennis facility with clinics and open courts for visitors and residents. The facility is beautiful with 8 hard courts and 2 clay courts. There are clinics for all ages and skill levels. It makes for a great break from the beach while on vacation.

    I fished with many Captains / Guides on the Gulf Coast of Florida and up and down the Florida Keys so I could say Captain Tommy Chapman is on the top of my list. He is professional, knowledgeable and a hard working young man. The day turned out to be a Redfish extravaganza !!! Me and my fishing buddy Knighted Capt. Tommy the "A" boat of their fleet! Will be a repeat customer.

    My recent visit to Mel Sole Golf School in Pawleys Island was everything i hoped for. David Olberding was my instructor and he was great. The instructions and information were clear and tailored for me. The technology is first rate and the video emails they send you each day allow you to go back after you leave and brush up on your technique. The room accomadations were perfect. My wife (not a golfer) came with me and she was able to stay busy on the Pawleys complex and in the general area there is lots to do. I look forward

    We had a great experience with Pawleys Kayaks on our vacation to Pawleys Island last month. The gentlemen who dropped off the paddle boards (and associated equipment) were both friendly and professional. Molly, who handled our reservations, was extremely helpful and accommodating.

    Our experience with Pawleys Kayak capped off an already wonderful vacation experience for our whole family. We will be calling them next summer!

    My 15 year old daughter loves to fish! She earned money by working hard this summer and decided to book a goliath grouper charter with Jesse McDowall. There were many charters to choose from but after booking with Jesse we knew we had made the right choice. From that point on everything was personal. He sent photos of the daily catch, communicated with us about the trip, and congratulated my daughter on accomplishments right up until the day of our charter. The weather was beautiful and Jesse, along with his wife Kelly, put us right on the grouper! Both of my girls caught beautiful grouper and enjoyed every minute of the trip. We caught three nice fish and to end the trip my daughter got the opportunity to fight a mature monster grouper! What an amazing way to end a perfect day. I fully recommend Jesse and Kelly for your next fishing experience. We will absolutely be back! Couldn't be more satisfied with our experience!

    We had an amazing day with Captain Steve! He was interesting, very accommodating and the boat was very well kept. We recommend you take this trip.
