It was a crazy day to go to the park as a Sea Turtle was being released an hour after we arrived, which is why we were there. We had been to the park years ago when we first moved to the area, but do not get to the beach as often as we would like. We were very impressed... More

The county park at Isle of Palms has everything you need. Close parking, beach access, life guards, chair and umbrella rental, restrooms, changing booths, playground, picnic tables, volleyball court and outdoor showers. Sand and water was great and the life guards really kept an eye on things. I have been to some really crowded beaches and there was a lot... More

Paid $6/7 for a carload of people. The ocean and sand were clean and the water comfortably warm. Having changing rooms, outdoor showers and restrooms available was great! Only negative was that my son was STARVING and the Hotdog man isn't there on Mondays (guess what day we were there!). He survived though and we got food and Ben &... More

My family and I loved this beach! A little crowded but that was to be expected...this place is so beautiful! Definitely a tourist destination...nice beach, reasonable entrance fee & convenient parking. The restrooms, showers and concessions are nice amenities to have available. There are lifeguards on duty and a nice play area for the little ones as well. This beach... More

parking close to the beach and fee to park was reasonable, a little high but not ridiculous. easy to get in and out at the county park and close walk to the beach. Very impressed with accommodations close to the Isle of Palms.

Best area of the beach with a lifeguard on duty. There are bathrooms, changing areas, and outdoor showers for getting the sand off before getting in your car. Refreshments available.

Beach place to be on the sand in Isle of Palms! Clean, chair/umbrella rentals, changing rooms, and bathrooms. Always go here when in IOP!

Great accommodations but get here early for a good spot on the beach. It gets very crowded and people don't have any fear of getting really close to where you are set up. Nothing like the beaches of Florida like New Smyrna.

The best part of IOP, is the parking. There is lots of meter parking at $1.00 per hour, and all day parking at several parking lots ranging from $5 to $10. Facilities are relatively clean, and there are outdoor showers to remove the sand after a day at the beach. The beach itself is nice, but was extremely overcrowded.
