Beautiful, hidden gem. Great beaches, bike trails, nature and golf. A multitude of choices in dining and for cocktails. Nothing I don't like about it.

“Kiawah Island - the best of coastal living from FLA - New England”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Visit Kiawah Island and experience the Low Country Carolina Coast at its best. It offers the best of the best - golf, tennis, kayaking in the marsh, inshore and offshore fishing, wide beaches, gentle tides (no dangerous undertow or cross currents), a 5 star resort Sanctuary Hotel, paved walking/bicycling paths throughout the 10 mile long island, and great restaurants on island, just off island, and in nearby Charleston.

“Ocean Course Golf-Expensive But Worth It”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I had the pleasure of playing the Ocean Course while attending a wedding at the Sanctuary. Although expensive, it was worth it for a golfing fan. The course is challenging but not unfair unless the wind is blowing. It is a walking course and is more tiring than the typical 18 hole course. The wind and sun will wear you out so don't plan on significant activities after the golf round. Also, plan on a five hour round. Stay out of the rough because of the pesky sand stickers.
