5 of the Best Beaches in Charleston, SC

1. Isle of Palms

When it comes to the most beautiful Charleston beaches, Isle of Palms should be at the top of your list! Surrounded by salt marshes, rolling sand dunes, and the Intracoastal Waterway, this gorgeous barrier island is breathtaking, to say the least. Walk to the pier or settle down beside the water with a good book. When you go, make sure to keep an eye out for nesting sea turtles! Female loggerheads like to make their home by the edge of the dunes between May and mid-August.

 

2. Sullivan’s Island

If you’re looking for some peace and quiet, head over to Sullivan’s Island in Charleston, SC.  Located next to Isle of Palms, this hidden gem has fewer crowds than neighboring beaches, offering a more private feel. Comb the shoreline for shells, dive into the ocean, or sink your toes into the sand and relax. In the distance, you might see the blinking light of the Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse or the waves crashing against Fort Moultrie. When you’re ready to take a break from the surf and sun, check out the many shops and restaurants in town. Make sure to stop into Poe’s Tavern for some of the best fish tacos you will ever taste!

 

3. Folly Beach

By far one of the most popular Charleston beaches is Folly Beach. A destination in and of itself, Folly Beach offers all the excitement of a small city with a laid-back island vibe. Catch some waves at the Washout, lounge on the beach, or meet with friends under the boardwalk. Folly Beach is also a prime destination for fishing, kiteboarding, surfing, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, or simply soaking up the sun. After a fun day by the ocean, browse the coastal shops on Center Street or dig into fresh the catch of the day at one of the local restaurants. When the sun sets, grab some cocktails and dance the night away at one of the rooftop bars. The possibilities are endless!

 

4. Kiawah Island

A little further from the hustle and bustle of downtown Charleston, SC, Kiawah Island boasts 10 miles of picture-perfect beaches. Once you’re there, you’ll see why this island oasis was ranked one of the “15 Happiest Places to Live On the Coast” by Coastal Living Magazine. Scenic views of the ocean, marsh, and lush maritime forest all await you. Take a dip in the water and look for dolphins leaping on the horizon. The hard-packed sand makes it easy to walk or bike along the shoreline.

 

In addition to the countless private beach accesses available to residents, Beachwalker County Park offers the only public beach access on the island. The park features a wide array of amenities, including a swimming area, picnic tables, restrooms, dressing area, and a boardwalk.

 

5. Seabrook Island

A stone’s throw from Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island has its own fair share of amazing beaches! Watch a beautiful Carolina sunrise on North Beach or take the dogs for an afternoon walk on Pelican Beach. Homeowners in certain communities also have the opportunity to enjoy private beach accesses.
