We stumbled upon this place and are so glad we did! Touring the Atalaya was absolutely amazing. I cannot imagine what it was like in its prime. The beach is so clean and there are showers and clean restrooms close by. Loved our day visit...More
Although it's not a big park, it has all the beach front you need without paying the exorbitant beach side parking prices in Myrtle Beach. The Huntington's castle was worth the nominal fee. Interesting to imagine living here.
This park is located south of Myrtle Beach in Georgetown County, about a half hour ride from Downtown Myrtle Beach. It has a great beach and facilities. On entry, there is a wildlife viewing area with all kinds of water birds. Watch out for the...More
I was a little disappointed that we had to pay park admission in order to visit Atalaya Castle. There was an additional small fee for touring the castle. The Castle tour was WELL worth the price.

Go at low tide. Then the egrets, herons, cormorants and wood storks are fishing. Today we saw a bald eagle gliding over the marsh. Take binoculars and/or a camera with a zoom lens. Lovely nature walks. Worth the price of admission, five bucks.
A beautiful park, which includes a beach lined with nature (Dunes, foliage, trees) instead of hotels.
There is a neat old 1930's property that can be viewed for an extra $2 a person (Its $5 per adult to enter the park). The property is called...More

It depends on what you & your mother want to do. There are some great boardwalks and paved paths to observe the birds & alligators near the causeway. The castle within the property would also be accessible. Boardwalks lead to the beach which is gorgeous and quite firm near the water. My question would be what do you want to do at the beach? Having used a walker when I had a hip replaced I can tell you walking in sand is difficult & tiring...the type with wheels will have issues, but the basic, fold-up types don't have seats. You'd probably need to carry along a camp chair. There were benches on the trails and at the parking areas, but I don't remember seeing any once you got into the dunes & the beach beyond.
