Huntington Beach State Park
Huntington Beach offers its visitors the best preserved beach on the Grand Strand.

The park?s freshwater lagoon, saltmarsh, maritime forest and beach are outstanding examples of the state?s natural coastal environment. These also provide such prime habitat for birds that the park is widely recognized as one of the best birding sites along the East Coast.

Huntington Beach is also the site of the historic ?Atalaya? castle. The former winter home and studio of noted American sculptress, Anna Hyatt Huntington, and her husband, Archer Milton Huntington, Atalaya is also listed as a National Historic Landmark.
History of the Area
Historical Significance: Atalaya, a National Historic Landmark, stands as monument to the creativity and generosity of Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington.

A noted scholar of Spanish culture and art, Archer Huntington modeled the couple?s winter home in the style of the Moorish architecture of the Spanish Mediterranean coast.
