Beaufort
The lovely five-mile expanse of sand at Hunting Island State Park is the top draw not only for Beaufort, but also the entire state. Set on a wildlife-rich semi-tropical barrier island with a fishing pier and camping, the family-friendly beach yields a bounty of seashells and offers warm summer swimming.
