Spent several days at this beach. The sand was white, soft and clean. This beach is family oriented. Great place to relax and take in some rays!

this is the best place to enjoy your holidays as the area is full of beautiful lights at night during Christmas season. The air is cool not freezing.

Excited to go to the beach in December. It was a beautiful sunny day and we were surprised to find starfish all over the beach.

Beautiful local beach, great weather, great views. The pier is gorgeous and the sand feels nice between my toes.

A little too commercial for us. Nice park area surrounded by shops and nick nack stores. Not our cup of tea.

Don't get me wrong, the beach was nice, as beaches go but the parking ticket cops are all over the place, and the parking is poorly marked. Go to Folly beach and keep the tax revenue away from this crooked little hole of a town!

My trip to Charleston was only 4 days and this beach was a must do! I've travelled to many beaches in California and Florida, but Isle of Palms is my favorite so far! It was clean, parking was close and easy, and the water was warm enough for swimming even in October. It was a lovely day!

We love the beach here. It is easy to park if you get there early. We love grabbing a coffee at our hotel and walking the beach and collecting shells before it gets to crowded. I wish we lived closer so we could enjoy it regularly. The amenities include snacks, showers and beach gear rentals.

We visited both Folly Beach and Isle of Palms during our recent Charleston trip. If you have to visit only one, I would choose Isle of Palms, especially if you have children. What gives Isle of Palms the edge up is that it is well maintained with changing cabanas, amble showers, a large bathroom facility, and a clearly designated chair... More
