This Out Of The Way Public Beach May Be The Best Kept Secret In South Carolina

The Palmetto State is a favorite retreat for vacationers from far and wide and our beaches are a huge part of the allure. So much so, that if you live in or near a beach community, you may think twice about heading to a crowded beach where you may or may not find a parking spot, let alone a quiet spot on the sand. Little do they (the visitors) know there are a few hidden beaches in South Carolina where we can escape the crowds and enjoy a day in the surf.

Pawleys Island is located between Georgetown and Litchfield Beach. The parking lot at the south end of the island is open from dawn until 11:00 p.m. There are no facilities for public use at this beach. Here’s a Google Maps link that will guide you to the parking lot.
