Escape the big city and watch dolphins in Murrells Inlet

Imbued with history and charming as it ever was as a small fishing town, Murrells Inlet has developed into a flourishing destination for travelers looking for unspoiled vistas. Here, you can escape neon-lit streets and enjoy natural coastlines and scenic walks through parks. Take a walk along the freshwater river and marvel while strolling through the world's largest sculpture garden.

Discover your amphibian side

Murrells Inlet is a quaint destination for travelers with a taste for class. Remember to pack rods and reels if you're planning on catching dinner, though golf clubs may be more appropriate for those who'd rather lap up the sun on land. Oceanside Murrells Inlet vacation rentals are also ideal for adrenaline seekers who enjoy parasailing, jet ski rides, and whale watching. The freshwater river, just 3 miles inland is the best spot for kayaking and peaceful waterfront ambles. Of course, this seaside holiday spot has no shortage of delectable seafood restaurants should you be unlucky and not catch anything yourself.

Ecotourism is booming in Murrells Inlet

Looking to see Murrells Inlet the green way? The Wacca Wache Marina is just the spot to bring out freshly made sandwiches and shrimp for a family picnic. Wacca Wache is only a hop away from Brookgreen Gardens, where winding oaks set the tone for the scenic beauty of this National Historic Landmark. Natural wonders aside, the on-site sculpture park features awe-inspiring art, and when you're ready to get your walking boots on and feel the crisp ocean air against your cheeks, the Huntington Beach State Park is where you'll find hiking trails, campsites and a majestic stone castle.

Deciding when to visit Murrells Inlet

You’d be wise to pack a jacket during winter, which makes walking along the glistening waterfront more comfortable on chillier days—winter temperatures can reach highs of 60 degrees. In summer, you'll definitely need your sunscreen, but the ocean breeze makes even July days of 80 degrees comfortable when the sun illuminates the colorful flowers and abundant trees beautifully. Late spring and fall present the most comfortable temperatures and the opportunity to leave your umbrella indoors, while autumn-colored leaves give Murrells Inlet a soothing charm.

Escape the concrete jungle in Murrells Inlet

Murrells Inlet vacation rentals may be increasingly popular, but this quaint settlement has lost none of its historic fishing village charm. Scenic stretches of waterfront, tasteful architecture and the pristine oceanfront define the views and layout of Murrells Inlet. Large swaths of the pebble and black sand beaches remain undeveloped, and dolphin, whale and shark watching will bring you up close and personal with animals and nature. Though the waters will appeal to everyone, you can also soak up mountain, plain, forest and desert wonders during your stay.
