While in South Carolina we went to 4 beaches and this was one of our favorites. It wasn't too crowded and there was a great atmosphere. It was more of a natural setting rather than touristy like Myrtle Beach. It was a perfect afternoon and the breeze was great since it was hot! Also the bathrooms were in good shape... More

Soft sand, and packed sand you can ride your bike on the beach. Don't skip the beach on cloudy days, so calm & beautiful.

We arrived at 9AM on July 1 expecting to run into parking problems - nope! Plenty of parking and even when we left around 2PM there were still a few spaces available. The snack bar is pretty basic. Very easy to rent chairs and umbrellas.

This is a beautiful beach to visit! Not nearly as crowded as Folly Beach to the north. To get to the park, turn right before you get to the guard's tower, at the general store area. It's a short walk down a shaded boardwalk. There is food, a shop, and restrooms. Very nicely appointed park, as one would expect on... More

We visited Kiawah Island (were actually staying in Myrtle) just for the day. I was very impressed with the beach. It was perfect for my kids aged 12 & 3. I knew the water wasn't going to be clear but we had a lot of fun searching for crabs and catching minnows. We loved how shallow the water was. For... More

The beach had nice facilities, very clean. Beach itself has perfect sand (at least in my opinion - its perfect for kids, hard packed and slightly wet-easy for them to walk on, not too hot and perfect for castles.) We had a great day and it was certainly worth the visit and the cost of parking.

The wife and I enjoy Beachwalker County Park more than any other beach in the state of SC. Limited parking means you never deal with an over crowed beach. No hotels, or shops on the beach provides a peaceful setting with nothing but Sand, water and trees. Beachwalker provides Picnic area with grills, Drink vending, snack bar, outdoor showers, and...

My wife and I mad a trip out to this beach based on Dr. Beach rating this a 2014 top 10 beach in the U.S. We arrived with great expectations of a beautiful beach. The beach is not especially crowded which is nice. There are plenty of life guards for safety. The sand is smooth soft and clean of garbage.... More

If you're looking for a great beach area to get away from the hustle and bustle. The big crowds, and all that comes with it. This is your spot. Not a lot of hotels, inns, stores, and attractions. But a great FAMILY place to just get away and relax. The park opens from 9 am till 7 pm and has... More

Just busy enough for a good "beachy day" feeling and all playful friendly dogs to tire her out for the trip back home!
