Fun town to dine. Beaches accessible from various points, no facilities. Beach parking with tires 4 ft off road. Traffic is heavy by 10am, opens up after 3pm. When leaving, leave before 3 or after 5.
Sullivans Island is the best beach to go to. They have long straight and level boardwalks to get to the water. No fee for parking. Lots of restaurants with average food. With the heat… I like to go around five 6-7PM and enjoy the sunset (8:30pm). Sometimes, I will take a light picnic dinner out…
Parking can be a bit of an issue, but it's free and street parking. Just read the signs! Eat at Obstinate Daughter while there!
They call it the "locals" beach. Just a bit more quiet than Folly with no shops and fewer restaurants.
