Visit South Carolina beaches
Sand and surf are just part of the attraction when it comes to visiting South Carolina’s nearly 200 miles of coastline.
Lowcountry – await families and traveling parties of all sizes and tastes.
But the star of this show is perhaps nature’s most compelling attraction – the place where surf meets land along a narrow strip of sand.
South Carolina’s beaches are among the finest in the nation.
Highlights include four state parks –Myrtle Beach,Huntington Beach, Edisto and Hunting Island — each of which offer cabins and/or camping, miles of public surf and its own unique character for off-beach exploration, including unspoiled maritime forest.
Public access also is plentiful along legendary Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach and at county parks and private resorts – from the most economical to world-class exclusive luxury – in the Charleston and Hilton Head areas.
And for those who want to share their beach time with nothing but nature, there are retreats like Cape Romaine National Wildlife Refuge — reachable only by boat — and the more than 300,000 acres of theACE Basin, the largest such preserved estuarine on the East Coast.
