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.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
