Pawleys Island



Located 25 mi/40 km south of Myrtle Beach, Pawleys Island, South Carolina, is one of the oldest resorts on the Atlantic coast—colonial rice planters escaped to this island during malaria outbreaks.

No high-rises are allowed on Pawleys Island, but you will see plenty of unique, weather-beaten beach houses.

Visit the specialty shops and look for the world-famous Pawleys Island Rope Hammocks, one of the traditional crafts of the area. In the Original Pawleys Island Hammock Shop, you can watch craftspeople as they weave.
