At the southern end of the Grand Strand, nestled between Georgetown and Murrells Inlet, sits Pawleys Island, a “low-country” island. Access to the island is gained by a bridge at either end of the island. One bridge takes you to the beach and the other to the island area.
Besides, being famous for hammocks made by locals, Pawley’s Island is known for its public beach. “Pawleys Point.” Is actually a slim peninsula with the ocean on one side and the semi-salt water of the Waccamaw River on the other . At the end of the peninsula the two bodies of water merge in a stunning natural environment.

Historically, the area was the home George Pawley, a wealthy rice grower, for whom the area is named. The island is so rich in history that there are stories of ghostly Civil War soldiers still visiting Pawleys to this day.
