Outdoor Activities

Characterized by a pristine stretch of sand soothed by balmy sea breezes, Huntington Beach State Park is a jewel embedded on the East Coast. Touted to be one of the best surf fishing spots in the whole of South Carolina, this entrancing state park cradles a menagerie of birds and fishes in its scenic depths. Priding itself on being one of the finest bird-watching sites on the coast, this state park is a dream of the naturalist and a wonderland of the animal enthusiast. In addition to providing birders with thrills, it has a freshwater lagoon, a salt marsh, two nature trails, camping sites and cabins, all buttressed by the mighty blue waters of the Atlantic coast. The park also harbors unhurried turtles and occasional minks, while its boardwalks extend into the marsh to give visitors an up-close look at all the natural delights the park has on offer. Enlivened especially during an annual arts festival, the park is the ground of the regal Atalaya Castle, erstwhile abode of Anna Hyatt Huntington.
