Pawleys Island, South Carolina

(4 customer reviews)



Pawleys Island is recognized and loved for its quaintness, peaceful and pristine beach, and a leisurely lifestyle.  Pawleys Island is a family beach known for crabbing, shelling, biking, canoeing, and kayaking.  Also, it is an island of “simple virtues and lack of pretense.”

Pawleys Island is located 70 miles north of Charleston, South Carolina.  Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is 25 miles from the island.  Because Pawleys is a well-kept secret, the island seems private and secluded.  If you are looking for a laid-back, unspoiled, carefree, non-commercialized “spa for our soul”, this is the vacation for you.

This one-week R-tinerary guide begins when you cross over one of the two causeways to the Island.  Instantly, the smell of the ocean breeze soothes the soul.  Likewise, the blue Atlantic waters bring calm and peace.  And the ebbing and flowing of the tide slows the mind to complete relaxation.  For that reason, this is a fabulous vacation!

Stay at a truly remarkable, one of a kind home surrounded on three sides by the ocean and Pawleys Creek.  If sandy beaches are not your idea of enjoyment, the home offers an infinity pool overlooking the inlet.

Rejuvenate reading a book on the beach.  Walk the 4 miles to the end of the island admiring the “arrogantly shabby” homes.  Visit a beautiful sculpture garden once home to rice plantations.  Also, watch as the original Pawleys Island hammocks are woven and explore unique shops.

If you want a more adventurous respite, fish with a guide catching local trophy fish.  Play golf alongside overhanding majestic live oaks framing the holes.  Hand line blue crabs from the dock.  Finally, float the creek as the tide gently pushes you along.

Eat in or dine at some delectable local restaurants.  Watch the sunset over Pawleys Creek.  After the sun is down and the stars come out, take a chance at ghost crab hunting.

    We have been going to Myrtle Beach for last 10 years and have never knew about Pawleys Island until we found this site. So glad we did.

    It is very quiet and peaceful. A hand full of sunbathers. You can take a very relaxing stroll down the beach. Highly recommend if you are wanting to get away from the crowds.

    Be careful this island can steal your heart. None of the high rise vacation spots will do after PAWLEY’S ISLAND and the rtinerary suggestions. It is possible to see the Grey Man (ghost) before storms and if you love this island. Lots of places claim to be Pawley’s but it is post office not actual island.
