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 attended our best friends wedding on the beach at Beachwalker County Park. It was marvelous. What a great setting for a wedding. Clean, peaceful with great views.

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

We were staying at the Andell Inn, which was about 2 miles from this park. While we had bikes, it was so brutally hot that we opted to drive and pay the $7 parking fee. The bad thing is that the parking lot does not open until 9:00 a.m., when the temperature had already climbed into the uber-hot range. The... More

Great beach. 7 bucks to get in. Only drawback is they close at 7. Nice walkway to the beach. Clean beach. Nice water. Sand is great. Definitely going back here. Had showers and everything so we left the sand there and not in the car.

$7 entry fee during the week, open at 9 am, get there early to get a shady parking spot. A bit of a long walk on the boardwalk to actually get to the beach. A life guard stand right where the boardwalk ends. As the tide goes out there are tide pools, at least there were the two days we... More
