Murrells Inlet is a seaside town south of Myrtle Beach and neighboring Surfside Beach. Buyers interested in Murrells Inlet real estate are often attracted to the area’s charm, marshes and waterways, rich history, and thrilling pirate stories. Widely known as the “Seafood Capital of South Carolina”, the area hosts some of the best seafood restaurants along the Grand Strand serving local fish, crab, shrimp and oysters. After a great meal, residents often take a stroll along the Marsh Walk, a half-mile walkway looking out over the saltmarsh.
Murrells Inlet offers a variety of marsh-front and water-front homes, as well as homes near local nature conservation sites. Mt Gilead and Prince Creek are just two of the in-demand communities in the area that include several water-front options. The Bays comprise a set of gated neighborhoods with a great selection of fun amenities for families, including sports fields, a pool and outdoor fire pits. Boating enthusiasts might consider one of the newer communities with access to the Intracoastal Waterway, such as Bellwood Landing, Collins Creek Landing and Creek Harbour.
