Where to Watch Pawleys Island Sunsets  

Pawleys Island Chapel 

The historic Pawleys Island Chapel is perhaps the most iconic spot to enjoy one of the sunsets on Pawleys Island during your vacation. The chapel sits along the marsh on Myrtle Avenue between both of the causeways onto the island. There is very little parking along the road, so arrive early to ensure your spot. 

Pawleys Island Parking Lot South 

The parking lot on the south end of Pawleys Island provides you with access to a long spit of sand dividing the marsh and the ocean. This is a fantastic place to watch a Pawleys Island sunset over the marsh while enjoying an evening on the beach. You’ll have plenty of space to run around and have fun as a family! 

Dunes Beach Properties 

When you stay with Dunes Beach Home Rentals, you don’t have to leave your property to watch sunsets on Pawleys Island. We have various houses and condos with top-notch sunset views. Whether they are on the marsh or offer a rooftop deck, there’s nothing like relaxing at your beach rental while soaking in the views. Take a peek at a few of our favorite properties with sunset vantage points below! 

Pawleys Island Night Sky 

Stick around after the sunset for the night sky encore over Pawleys Island. The lack of artificial light polluting the night sky in our area means you can enjoy prime stargazing at night.  

Pawleys Island Sunrise 

Complete your sun-seeing tour of Pawleys Island by waking up before the crack of dawn and watching the sunrise. Our oceanfront properties all boast the best seats in the house, but you can also head to the sand for a morning walk while watching the sun peak above the ocean.
