Drone view of scenic Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

This aerial video was filmed in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on
June 1st 2015 at Laguna Keys Condo. This aerial drone video was filmed
in 4k resolution and at a altitude of 287 feet. The video was filmed
over Waites Island Marsh. Waties Island is, for the most part, land
untouched by human development. This is the result of the entire mass
tending to fall under the jurisdiction of a single family or facility
who choose not to develop it or have a distinct purpose in keeping the
island undeveloped. This underdevelopment of the island contrasts
sharply with the surrounding Grand Strand area, a beach region that is
mostly developed. In addition, Waties Island is a barrier island with
a significantly varying climate and ecology compared to the
surrounding city land. It is one of the last remaining undeveloped
barrier islands on the South Carolina coast. These factors have
contributed to its use as a research area by students and faculty of
Coastal Carolina University. The island has a conservation easement
with The Nature Conservancy placed on it.
