At Greenwood Beach Resort, their motto is “Find Yourself,” and if you ask, you'll find that each guest interprets that differently. The resort's relaxed, informal atmosphere allows guests to meet, mingle and develop lasting friendships, so much so that many of then plan their return vacations at the same time each year. Greenwood is family operated and that is reflected in its family and children oriented atmosphere.

You're never more than a short distance away from their incredible and breathtaking eight-mile long beach. You can walk for miles and you'll be in your own company with only some curious fish peeking their head above the water. Or, simply relax under a beach cabana or stretch out in a hammock under the palm tree.

Adventures on and under the water include diving off an ocean wall where you can see myriad marine life: sharks, barracudas, parrot fish, groupers, snappers and moray eel; kayaking, or snorkeling just off the beach. Families and children are definitely what create the fabric of Greenwood.
