A Weekend Getaway to the Hammock Coast

South Carolina’s Hammock Coast offers an escape from the hustle and bustle of some larger popular beach destinations. Located just south of Myrtle Beach, visitors will discover pristine beaches, small-town beauty and a variety of activities for every member of the family. 

My husband and I visited Litchfield Beach and Pawleys Island, two of the six areas that make up the Hammock Coast. We stayed at the beautiful Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort, a great destination in itself and a jumping off point to explore the area.

Whether you prefer a beach ball or a golf ball, Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort is the perfect location for a weekend get-a-way to the Hammock Coast. The resort offers a variety of accommodations including beachfront condos, lakeside villas and homes. We stayed at Bridgewater, which features one- and two-bedroom condos with king or queen beds, a living area, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and a balcony with breathtaking views of the  Atlantic Ocean. The private one-mile beach is just steps away, as well as an indoor and outdoor pool, a lazy river, and pool play plaza.
