Wow! I live in the area but this place never gets old. The outline of Fort Wagner can still be seen and the shells and sharks teeth are everywhere. The island is only accessible by boat so the surrounding beaches are pristine and there are...More

Whether getting there by boat, or viewing from afar, the Morris Island Light is a beauty to seafarers and land lubbers alike.

As mentioned in other reviews, you can park and walk up a 1/4 mile stretch of pavement to the beach area. A word of warning, there is NO cover from the sun so, on a hot summer day, that short walk can be brutal for...More

I went in winter so the lighthouse was inaccessible by boat but it was still very nice! We walked down to the water's edge through the park and while a bit of a walk it was definitely worth it. The beach was quiet and offered...More

About 1/4 mile down paved road to the beach. Lighthouse is out in the water but easily seen. Nice beach as well. We were able to take some really good pictures of it. Worth the walk.

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!
