About The South Strand

Welcome To The Beach!

The history of the area. Georgetown County, also known as the “Hammock Coast,” is a peaceful alternative to Myrtle Beach City living.
Pawleys Island is referred to as the “Waccamaw Neck.” It is known for its laid-back lifestyle. This historic area was once the rice capital of the world. You will still find original plantation homes and moss-covered oak trees that line roads. This rich history dates back to the 1700’s.

Brookgreen Gardens

Brookgreen Gardens is another attraction for the area that is a must-see. Brookgreen Gardens is a series of beautiful gardens with wonderful statues. There are over 300 acres of gardens that are open to the public.

Brookgreen also puts on many events throughout the year, such as cultural events, lectures, films, and performing arts programs. During the winter, be sure to check out Nights of 1,000 Candles, which is when the gardens are decorated with beautiful candles and lights. Also, remember to check out the zoo.


Speaking of the finest restaurants, this area has some of the best dining options. You could not be in a better place if you are a seafood lover. Murrells Inlet is known as the seafood capital of South Carolina. You could not be in a better place if you are a seafood lover. Most restaurants serve freshly caught fish, shrimp, and other seafood from the local waters. Be sure to try some locally harvested oysters while they are in season.

After dining in Murrells Inlet, be sure to take a walk down the marsh walk. You might even see Bubba Love, a Murrells Inlet fixture and cook, feeding the animals on Goat Island.


For the sun seeker, the South Strand offers some of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the United States. The wide sandy beaches give the beachgoer plenty of room to take in the sun, relax, and unwind. There is also private beach access along the area.


The South Strand is also a sportsman’s dream. There is fishing both on and offshore. For the inexperienced angler, numerous guide services from Little River to Georgetown can put you on the fish.

There are also multiple fishing piers that you can try your luck on. Some even have live music and entertainment to keep everyone entertained while fishing.
