About the Community
Pawleys Island is one of the oldest summer resorts on the East Coast.  This postcard beach community is located just south of Myrtle Beach and 80 miles north of Charleston.  The area has abundant sunshine, tropical-like summers, and very mild winters.  Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, there are endless outdoor activities.  The area is also rich in culture with many opportunities to experience the arts.
