Hunting Island Beach lies in the cluster of islands which typify South Carolina’s Atlantic coastline between Charleston to the north and Savannah, Georgia, to the south. It’s a straight section of near-white sand stretching for around two kilometres, facing roughly eastwards.

Backed by a basic campground, Hunting Island Beach sits within Hunting Island State Park. Its sands are reached via Route 21, also known as Sea Island Parkway. The park attracts up to a million visitors each year, who come for the mix of sun, sea, hiking, history and wildlife. Alongside deer, alligators and loggerhead turtles, the beach provides sustenance for hundreds of species of seabird. There’s also a fishing pier.

There’s an admission fee of $8 for adults and $4 for children over five years old to enter Hunting Island State Park and reach the beach.
