Discover the Charm of Pawleys Island

Pawleys Island is one of America’s oldest and most appealing summer resort communities. Tracing its origins to the early 1700s, when rice planters first settled along the area’s nearby rivers, Pawleys Island is now a refuge for vacationers in search of a trip that provides relaxation, natural beauty and an escape from the frantic pace of modern life.

Reasons for the area’s appeal extend far beyond its highly-ranked pristine beach, casual charm and laid-back vibe. Pawleys is home to an abundance of eco-activities, including crabbing, fishing and kayaking, and just across the causeway are some of America’s premier golf courses and an array of restaurants that are a foodies dream.

Grab your beach towel, a good book (maybe one about the area’s famed ghosts?) and/or golf clubs and enjoy your trip to Pawleys Island! Once you’ve relaxed in an official Pawleys Island hammock, handmade here for nearly 100 years, you’ll feel perfectly at home.
