This is a beautiful beach. We paid $7 to park and it was definitely worth it. They had umbrellas to rent for $10 but no chairs. We had to buy chairs at the local general store. The beach was not crowded so at times we felt like we almost had a private beach.

One of our favorite places on the island. Dolphins, starfish, sand dollars and tons of shells! My wife and kids love this place. Something different every time we go.

We had our 2 teen girls with us and they had a great time. Beach was clean and an easy walk from the parking lot to the water. My only complaint was that it closed so early - 6pm on Sundays. We're heading back next weekend for one more dip in the ocean on our way home.

No wonder this beach is ranked number #4 on the East coast of usa. This beach was clean and not crowded at all $7 entry for the whole day and dogs are allowed on a leash!!! that was great.

Kiawah island is a barrier island 21 miles south of Charleston. Lush foliage oaks line the road to get there. Beachwalker County Park offers the only public access to beach on the island and to find a park can be a nightmare because the parking lot is quite small. I suggest to arrive quite early in the morning because when... More

I have to confess we had no problem with the user fee because we never paid to use the park! --we biked there everyday from our Inlet Cove condo, and you only pay if you are in a car. My advice is if you can travel light to the beach, rent a close-by property and bike it! Its the only... More

The first time we went to Beachwalker we were surprised to see how small and expensive the parking lot was. We had read and heard this beach park was beautiful and we were staying closer to town (Charleston) so the drive was about 40 minutes. We looked forward to it; luckily we arrived later in the afternoon and the parking... More

We spent three days at Kiawah and came to this beautiful beach at different times each day. We were always able to find parking in the lot ($7 per day) and a peaceful spot to ourselves on the beach. It is clean and there are lifeguards for portions of the beach. We went beyond these boundaries and were among only... More

The beach was very clean, had chairs and umbrellas for rent, was overseen by lifeguards, had places to have a picnic in addition to bathrooms and showers. It's perfect for a long day at the beach
