4 Fun Ways to Spend a Girl's Weekend in Pawleys Island

Has it been too long since you’ve enjoyed a road trip with your best friends? There’s no reason to put it off any longer when Pawleys Island awaits.


First, plan a shopping excursion and hit up the unique boutiques and restaurants at Hammock Shops Village, home of the Original Pawleys Island Hammock. Browse beautiful, garden-like grounds and shop for everything under the sun, from clothing, shoes, children’s wear, gifts, jewelry to toys, collectibles, art, candles and more. It’s a quaint place to stroll, shop and chow down on a burger at BisQit or seafood favorites at Southern Comfort. You will also want to check out the Sea Gypsy boutique located next to Rustic Table in the Island Shops across from the TideLife office. 


Second, treat yourself with a range of body therapies at one of the salons and spas on Pawleys Island. You and your girlfriends can slip into comfy robes and step into the candlelit serenity at Spa Sera. Relax with a nurturing massage, full body polish, scrub or wrap. You pick the treatment, they’ll provide the peaceful pampering.


Or experience a deep cleaning facial, micro dermabrasion facial, manicure or pedicure at the Island Day Spa. They have a salon as well, so make time to get a haircut, color and highlights, too. 


Third, grab the girls and head to Chive Blossom Restaurant & Bar to sip craft cocktails like a Grapefruit & Bubbles with prosecco, St. Germain and fresh grapefruit juice, or an Angostura Paloma with La Gritona Reposado tequila, grapefruit juice, fresh lime and Angostura Soda. If wine is more your drink, Chive Blossom has an extensive list of interesting whites, bold reds, and sparkling wines. Start off your meal with she-crab soup, charred octopus or low-country oyster pie. Chive Blossom offers an array of seafood dishes, as well as salads and pasta.


Fourth, a great way to end the day is with a Sunset Moonrise Kayak Tour with Surf the Earth. If mornings are bet-ter, book the Morning Paddleboard Tour or Morning Kayak Tour. If your girl gang is feeling adventurous, sign up for a group surfing lesson. Either way, you can enjoy the sun and surf while having a blast on the water.
