Hammock Coast

South Carolina’s Hammock Coast –
Vacation Destination with Southern Charm

Where is the Hammock Coast? Well, take a peek at the coastal area between Myrtle Beach and Charleston. For years, Georgetown County, known as South Carolina’s Hammock Coast has quietly given beach lovers, golfers, families, outdoor enthusiasts and history buffs, a vacation destination infused with Southern charm and natural beauty.

Made up of the communities of Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet, Garden City, Litchfield Beach and Georgetown, each area has its own distinct personality, which combined, form the unique attraction of this area. You won’t have trouble claiming your spot on our beaches. Garden City, Litchfield and Pawleys Island all have spacious beaches and pristine salt marshes for soaking up the sun, exploring or catching some fish and blue crabs for dinner.

Award winning golf, with more than 13 courses within a 15-minute drive, dots our area. Many built on former rice plantations, give a graciously Southern golf experience. Three of Golf Magazines’ “Top 100 You Can Play” are here and Pawleys Island was named one of the top ten “Golf Islands” in the world by Links Magazine.

Pawleys Island, the oldest Seaside Resort in America, continues to be a great place to enjoy a quiet, laid-back vacation. As the birthplace of the rope hammock, relaxation has a long history here. The actual island has no commercial development; however, just over the short causeway, there are first class restaurants and boutique shopping for when (if!) you want a break from relaxing on the beach or the porch.
Known as the Seafood Capital of South Carolina, Murrells Inlet is a sleepy little fishing village on a protected inlet, and boasts some of the best seafood in the entire South! The Murrells Inlet Marshwalk is a boardwalk on the banks of the Inlet, and allows visitors to truly experience the salt-marsh ecosystem along with restaurants, shops, parasailing, jet skiing and fishing excursions.

Between Murrells Inlet and the Litchfield Beaches, you will discover Brookgreen Gardens and Huntington Beach State Park. Huntington Beach State Park, recognized as one of the top birding spots in North America, also offers camping and access to a pristine undeveloped beach. Brookgreen Gardens houses the most significant collection of figurative sculpture in a beautiful outdoor setting and the only accredited zoo on the coast of SC.

For the history buff, Georgetown is South Carolina’s third oldest city, founded in 1729. It is also the probable site of the first European settlement in North America in 1526. It also boasts a charming downtown historic district with restaurants and boutique shopping along the Harborwalk. Local tour companies provide a glimpse into the history of the area by land and by river.

For the foodie, you won’t have any trouble finding an amazing meal on the Hammock Coast, our area is dotted with great little restaurants, staffed by award winning chefs. Fresh seafood, fresh produce and wonderful culinary talent equal many “blog-worthy” meals.

Fishing, hunting and outdoor recreation are plentiful. With five rivers coming together to meet the ocean, and vast undeveloped land holdings, wildlife is plentiful. A number of guides and outfitters are available to get you out on the water in a boat, kayak, paddleboard or surfboard.

Come visit the Hammock Coast and rediscover life with no schedules, rediscover your family, rediscover nature and rediscover yourself. The only itinerary you need is a tide chart!
