We hiked the 1/2 mile to the beach and it started raining. The view is lovely, just wished the weather cooperated.

You have to drive to the end of the island then park and then walk quite some way. Bring water and maybe a snack. Interesting history to know this lighthouse has been moved twice as the land gives way to the ocean. Also really neat to go out to on a jet ski or boat, we have done that as... More

If you love lighthouses or beautiful picture opportunities, it is totally worth the drive and subsequent walk to view the lighthouse. You can view and photograph it from a lovely secluded beach which makes for gorgeous picture opportunities. Highly recommended for sunset!

Park the car parallel to the road without blocking a driveway. Walk down the access road and bear right to walk up the beach toward the light. It is uncrowded and full of sea birds and buried pilings. If you are a photographer, you can some nice shots as you walk north. As soon as you spot the lighthouse, there... More

I wanted to photograph Morris Island Lighthouse from Folly Beach. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. Perhaps the following directions will help: 1. We encountered lots of traffic on the 171 between Charleston and Folly Beach. They are making repairs to the bridges. The 30 minute drive took more like an hour. You may want to... More

Went out to the lighthouse during low tide( didn't plan it) but it was the best time to go. The lighthouse was very pretty and we were able to walk out to a sand bar farther down on the beach before the lighthouse. Found sand dollars and really cool seashells which was an added bonus!! Loved it and would definitely... More

We walked out to see the lighthouse at the end of Folly beach, nice little walk in, the beach was beautiful but NOT swimmable (strong currents where the harbor meets the ocean) We got some nice pics.

This remote beach front that overlooks the Morris Island Lighthouse is a must see if you are on Folly Beach. It does require a walk down a paved road and then a trek through sand over the dunes and across a beach. However, the scenery is spectacular and well worth the walk!

I only give it a 4 because you can't climb the stairs. If you are a lighthouse lover like most of the people that visit Morris, its worth the trip. Great photo oppurtunities. Very few people here so you can just sit and relax. There is free street parking and then you have to walk in. Take the beach back... More

If you take Folly road till it ends then take a left and keep going to the end- you will have to move over a block when the road ends but just go as far as you can until you get to a dead end and you will see the sign that says Morris Light House restoration. You have to... More
