My family and I visited this landmark the third week of July 2018. We parked for free in the assigned area as it was not crowded. The 1/4 mile walk to the actual beach was fun as there is lots of graffiti along the walkway....More

Enjoyed the sort 1/4 miles walk to the beach. Did not care for all the graffiti along the way. Nice view of lighthouse from beach. Saw dolphins swimming by. Again graffiti takes away from the natural beauty of the beach area.

Absolutly excellent! A must do at sunset. I am a local and it is not just for our wonderful tourist. Worth every penny if you love history, water, ecology, beach, shells, education and sunsets. Just loved it. The staff are knowledgeable and pretty awesome!

We used Charleston Outdoor Adventures for our trip to Morris Island. You would need to ask a tour company whether or not animals are allowed on their boats and/or the island!
