The Water Is A Brilliant Blue At Broyles Recreation Area Beach, A Refreshing Roadside Stop In South Carolina
South Carolina’s summer heat often extends well into the fall season… even in the Upstate. And finding an out of the way, uncrowded beach in South Carolina is not always an easy task, whether it’s a coastal beach or one found lakeside. Whether it’s summer, fall, or spring, a visit to Broyles Recreation Area should inject a soothing vibe into your day with its spectacularly blue water views of Lake Hartwell.
This waterside locale is found less than a mile from Interstate 85 approximately 10 miles from the Georgia state line.
The next time you're nearby, take a detour to check it out.
What you'll find is a beautiful and serene natural area on Lake Hartwell that encompasses a wide peninsula that juts out into the lake.
Additional fingers extend into the lake, intensifying the already gorgeous terrain.
While the park's main features are its three-lane boat launch ramp and courtesy dock, it also sports a swim beach that's open from April through the end of September.
If it's a day on the water you seek, you'll find it — and some of the best, brilliant blue water views in the state — right here.
Broyles Recreation Area includes 14 picnic sites, and one group picnic shelter, so pack a lunch and stay a while.
Portions of Lake Hartwell serve as the border between South Carolina and Georgia. The massive body of water consists of roughly 960 miles of shoreline.
This little park may just be the most beautiful spot on the shore!
