The reviews are spot on! This is an incredible beach area just south of murrells inlet. This beach is very family friendly with easy access to restrooms and outdoor showers. We will definitely be back for more fun on the beach!!

Great state park with a lot of history, dogs are allowed on the beach and there are NO commercial buildings or condos in sight! Nice for family outings..

Huntington Beach is gorgeous-clean, quiet & relaxing. We enjoyed the sand and ocean. Beach goers had fun but respected those around them. One of my favorite places.

Great parking, easy access, wonderful Bay side boardwalk, egrets and alligators. Worth every penny. Gift shop on site.

Despite damage from Hurricane Matthew this is still a nice beach. SC has cleared debris from the beach and the remaining driftwood and trees are cool to explore. Be sure to make the climb up the lighthouse for a awesome view of the area.

Atalaya's unique history and the parks fantastic birding make for a great time. We did around 4 miles of trails and noticed many birders around. Herons, egrets and painted buntings all put on a great show. Also a little under the radar is the fact...More

We had park access through the place we stayed at. This is a neat place with beach access. There is camping ground and plenty of places to walk with very beautiful views. I would definitely recommend if you are staying off of the ocean somewhere.

It is approximately a quarter of a mile from the farthest campsites. The walk is an easy one from both campsites. The north beach is easier to pull wagons or carts onto than the South beach. Hope this helps. There are... More

When we visited we stayed in Murrell's Inlet and LOVED it!!! It was very close to several attractions and a wonderful quiet beach. We plan to stay there again.
