Approximately 25 miles south of Myrtle Beach, and just north of Georgetown, SC is a charming beach community known as Pawley’s Island. Affectionately referred to as “arrogantly shabby” by the locals, Pawley’s Island is rare in that it is unspoiled by modern day commercialism. As a matter of fact, builders have to meet certain guidelines when building in the Pawley’s Island area, versus other areas of the Grand Strand. Local and chain businesses alike have to ensure that their building does not detract from the scenic Pawley’s Island views, which often times causes chains businesses to have a different, and more aesthetically appealing architectural design.

Pawley’s Island was first settled in the early 1700s by rice planters, evidenced today by the marshy areas throughout this region. This section of Georgetown County, often compared with Hilton Head Island, has become one of the most desired family beach destinations in the state. Though real estate in Pawley’s Island continues to be heavily desired, recent changes in the real estate market have made Pawleys Island homes more affordable than in previous years. The community of Pawley’s Island strives to keep its natural appeal, and continues to offer a relaxing environment for visitors.

When you are searching for a home in the Pawley’s Island area, you may want to consider whether you want to live in one of the many golf course neighborhoods, like Litchfield Country Club and Pawley’s Plantation, on the oceanfront, like homes at the Peninsula at Inlet Point, or the very popular and more affordable Hagley Estates area. Whatever your case me be, take some time to read about some of the communities in Pawley’s Island and call Beach Realty Group at 843-492-0284 with any questions you have.
