“This is a great, almost private, beach area”
Reviewed March 24, 2012

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.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Wish we would have had our bicycles with us! We do like to walk, so did a ton of that! The ranger at the gift shop was very nice and very helpful. On your first visit there, would recommend going there before you do anything so they can give you a map and tell you the best way to see the park. We saw several baby alligators in the causeway and also witnessed a large alligator devouring a pelican! Wow! The park is meticulously kept and the beach is beautiful. Though the restroom (ladies) appeared to be undergoing some renovation, I do think they could have at least provided soap and paper towels/air dryers. My husband said the men's room did not have any hand wiping options either. We did not have time to go down the road to see the jetty, but a MUST would be to take the tour of Atalaya - the Huntington's former home. It's only $1.00 per person - either self-guided, or take their 2:00 guided tour. The State of South Carolina does a fabulous job with this park - it's a real gem!
