Fun Facts About the Hammock Coast

It’s unlikely there’s a more chill coast anywhere, wouldn’t you agree?

  1. South Carolinians didn’t actually invent the hammock

Riverboat captain Joshua John Ward created the comfy version you can buy in Litchfield today.

  1. It’s small but mighty

It’ll take 35 minutes to drive from end to end. There is history, great restaurants, and countless adventures in those miles between.

  1. There are 2 famous ghosts

The Gray man makes a Pawleys Island appearance before hurricanes, to warn beachgoers. Alice Flagg, they say, died of a broken heart. She still haunts the marsh and rooms at The Hermitage, where she lived.

Find Sheer Shopping Bliss and More at the Hammock Shops

Let the kids enjoy the playground. Play corn hole or watch craftsmen weave hammocks. Sit in on a wine tasting or relax with live music.


Pick up Hammock Beach souvenirs to bring home to anyone who didn’t get to come with. 

Barefoot General Store

Wonderful gifts and unique inventory — Barefoot General Store has it. They carry essentials you might have forgotten for your trip. Plus brands such as Lotus and Luna, Tidewater Sandals & Flipflops, Warmies, and more.


Head to the back of the store for old-school candy by the pound.

The Original Hammock Shop

Hammocks aren’t the only unique item you’ll find in The Original Hammock Shop. It’s a fantastic spot with history — it first opened in 1938 with the first shops. You’ll find friendly folks who share Hammock Life time with you.


Ask about the next hammock-weaving demonstration. It’s so cool to see how they make these things. (Bring one home, too.)


Local Eat Drink Celebrate

You can get a super meal while you shop, at Local Eat Drink Celebrate. You’ll find excellent service and incredible dishes. (The pork chops and seared scallops are favorites). This place uses locally sourced ingredients in entrees and drinks. And it supports many local charities.


The BBQ Sandwich is quite elevated. It’s pulled, house-smoked pork with slaw, sweet tang sauce, and fried pickled jalapenos.

Squeezed Juice Bar

Bring your wife, bring your husband, bring your friend. Squeezed Juice Bar is a cute spot to indulge in a super yummy fresh-made smoothie or juice. You’ll feel the love after one sip. 


If the day is nice, sit outside and enjoy your drink, distraction-free. Put the phone down and enjoy the moment.
