Visited Atalaya the Huntingtons winter residence while seeing nearby Brookgreen Gardens. Unusual structure designed to double as a sculpture studio. Closes at 4pm so plan ahead.

A nice family beach - extremely clean. Lotsa hiking trails. A great relaxing beach that goes for miles. Highly recommended for those who want to escape the hustle of the big public beaches.

Visited after spending a few hours at Brookgreen. The beaches go on forever. Nice areas for bird watching but we didn t see many. It is well worth viewing the house after having visited the Brookgreen gardens.

If you like birds you’ll love this place! We saw and photographed so many. There is a store, an RV Park and toilets. All quite sensitively done. We visited on a quiet Monday in early February and loved it. It is well used by dog-walkers....More

It depends on what you & your mother want to do. There are some great boardwalks and paved paths to observe the birds & alligators near the causeway. The castle within the property would also be accessible. Boardwalks... More
