Dog-friendly Pawleys Island Beaches

Pawley's Island offers some of the most pet-friendly beaches on the east coast. While pups must be leashed the majority of the time, they are still permitted to run alongside you in the surf on several public beaches and state park beaches. Litchfield Beach and North Litchfield Beach require dogs to be on a leash between 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., however early-morning play time and sunset strolls may be taken without leashes if your dog is well trained by voice commands. Huntington Beach State Park is also a dog-friendly beach. Your pup must remain on its leash, but is allowed on the south end of the beach access. All public boardwalks are equipped with garbage receptacles, as well as dog waste collection bags.
