Plan Your Summer on Litchfield Beach 

1. Beaches 

No summer on Litchfield Beach is complete without soaking in the warm rays of Palmetto State sunshine. Grab a beach towel and your favorite book for a relaxing day of frolicking in the ocean, building sandcastles, and memorable family time.  

2. Kayaking 

Slowly cruising along the marshy intercoastal waterways in a kayak is a fun adventure in Pawleys Island. We recommend renting a single or double kayak from Pawleys Kayaks 

3. Fishing 

Are you itching to get on the water and cast your line in the Atlantic? Well, you’re in luck because there are several fantastic fishing charters near Litchfield Beach. Plus, there are a few fishing spots nearby. 

4. Golfing 

The Palmetto State is home to some of the best golf courses in the country, and the Hammock Coast is no exception. There are dozens of championship links within 20 minutes of Litchfield Beach!
