Pawley’s Island

The Area – Murrells Inlet

Natural and historic, Pawleys Island SC is often overlooked as a Grand Strand Low Country vacation area. However, it has lots of appeal. For starters, Pawleys Island is perfectly located just 70 miles north of Charleston and 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach. Long ago, it was a summer resort for affluent plantation owners that existed during the period in which the planters controlled the politics and interests of the state. Many of their antebellum homes and plantation mansions are still standing and are part of the Pawleys Island Historic District, which simply cannot be missed. Because of the island’s immense history and the old homes and beach cottages that still exist, some have aptly called it an elegantly shabby “beach chic” island. Currently, there is a ban on commercial or industrial buildings on the island so you will find many historic areas and lovely old homes and inns that have been around for years. These are great for Pawleys Island Lodging and accommodations. There are also several great Vacation Rentals, as well.
