Looking to knock out a number of exciting adventures in one fell swoop? Then, head on over to Huntington Beach State Park.

For all you animal lovers, Huntington Beach State Park is one of the best places in the Myrtle Beach area to spot loggerhead sea turtles.

However, if there is one species that stands out at Huntington Beach, it’s the birds. This park is one of the prime spots on the East Coast for bird watching, as more than 300 different species of these winged beauties have been recorded.

Finally, a visit to Huntington Beach isn’t complete without a tour of the Atalaya Castle. This Moorish-style structure was the winter home of sculptor Anna Hyatt Huntington and her husband, Archer, who left the park as their legacy.

And now you know where the park got its name!
