Huntington Beach State Park
Huntington Beach State Park is located between Murrells Inlet and Pawleys Island on the south end of the Grand Strand. The park is set against a scenic saltwater marsh and is home to lots of indigenous wildlife including alligators, many species of birds and more. In addition to camping, fishing, conservation activities, shelters and beach access, the park is also home to one of the most unique historical exhibits in Myrtle Beach, Atalaya castle. Built in 1931 by industrialist/philantropist Archer Huntington and his wife, sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington, this “winter home” is influenced greatly by Spanish culture and art, and designed in the Moorish Revival and Mediterranean Revival architecture styles.
