We found out about this place from an employee at the ice cream shop - (it was not on our list of things to do from Wyndham hmm?!) - and boy are we glad! It was by far our favorite stop in Edisto. We took the self-driving tour around the plantations, and then rode our bikes to the beach. Everything is free! It is a long walk from the parking lot to the beach - and we couldn't have been happier that we brought our bikes. We then rode up and down the coast along the sand. It was breath-takingly beautiful and we were able to travel much farther than we would have been by foot. You can swim in the beach - you can fish - you can eat (no alcohol) but there is no bathroom anywhere on the bay. If you visit Edisto, you must go to Botany Bay!
