The town of Little River, South Carolina is one of the oldest settlements along the coast. Known for its seafood, deep-sea & commercial fishing, charter boats, annual blue crab festival and historic live oak trees, it is one of the last communities on the Grand Strand where a slower pace of life still exists. Residents and visitors alike share a quieter, more peaceful time in this quaint fishing village.


Located just a few minutes north of the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach; yet conveniently close enough to all the area’s attractions, signature golf courses, unique variety shows, shopping outlets and entertainment so all of the Grand Strand’s splendor is within a few moments drive. For those who love to play in the waterway, there are jet ski rentals at the waterfront as well as dock space and boat rentals at Crickett Cove and Coquina Harbor marinas.

Little River has quite a colorful history. Names like Captain Kidd, Blackbeard, Anne Bonney and others are part of the local lore. President George Washington noted that he dined with James Cochran in Little River in April 1791. Through the years, Little River has reluctantly played host to pirates, smugglers and blockade-runners in the Civil War.


Come and experience all that Little River has to offer. There’s something here for everyone!

Fun Facts:

Indian tribes called the stream Mineola, meaning "little river" and that became its name. Little River is one of the oldest settlements along the coast, with fishermen and farmers coming to stay in the late 1600s and 1700s. There are no records, but possibly they built small cabins on the wide tidal inlet, which narrows to a stream. The river became part of the Intracoastal Waterway in 1936.

The small protected harbor was a haven for shipwreck survivors and pirates, who needed a place for rest and repairs. The few settlers were forced to help pirates who demanded food and supplies, their weapons a persuasive factor. Names like Captain Kidd, Blackbeard, Stede Bonnette, Anne Bonney and others are part of the local lore. From time to time, maps appear as restaurant place mats, attempting to locate buried pirate treasure.

President George Washington noted that he dined with James Cochran in Little River in April 1791, as he traveled the King's Highway on his Southern tour.

Through the years, Little River has reluctantly played host to pirates, smugglers, and blockade-runners in the Civil War. But road building in the 1920s and use of cars and trucks to carry people and good caused sea traffic and trade to diminish and finally disappear.
