The Beaches at Pawleys Island & Litchfield Beach

Area Beaches

PAWLEYS ISLAND BEACHES

One of the remaining pristine public beaches uncluttered by high rises and unspoiled by overcrowding and commercialism, Pawleys Island, South Carolina is a longtime favorite to locals and out-of-state visitors alike.

The beaches at Pawleys Island in South Carolina are situated on the Atlantic Ocean between Charleston and Myrtle Beach. There are two causeways that access the beach: one located at the north end of the island between Highway 17 North, otherwise known as Ocean Highway, and across from Waverly Road; the other causeway is south of the island from Highway 17 North and veers off to the right at the traffic light before the Food Lion Shopping Center on to South Causeway Road.

Once on the island, beach goers can go north or south and find beach access along the oceanfront. There is limited public parking on the island and visitors who are not staying on the island need to beware of frequent ticketing of vehicles not utilizing parking locations. There are limited public restroom facilities at the south end of the island only. The best beach access is from one of our rentals homes either oceanfront or off ocean.

Since the island of Pawleys Island itself has no commercial properties, visitors can venture across the causeways to Pawleys Island mainland to find restaurants, gas stations, grocery stores, boutiques, beach services, boating and fishing equipment and services, and many other retail establishments that offer anything one might need for their beach experience.
