Not just that, it's seriously good-looking to boot, with a good number of grand 19th-century homes. A Pawleys Island vacation rental is about lazing on the beach, wildlife watching in the wetlands and oceanfront nature parks, and kicking back with a cold one on the porch.

Natural features

They called it the Grand Strand, and they weren't joking

Pawleys Island is the name of both the town and the little barrier island it sits on. It's down at the southern end of the famous Grand Strand—a 60-mile stretch of beach reaching down the east coast. Pawleys Island is well-known for its wetlands, rivers, and state parks down by the ocean. There's wildlife galore, especially if you take a boat and check out the marine life. And if you're in the market for gators, then you might just be in luck. There are plenty of them down here, and you might even see some sunning themselves on the golf course.
