Great place for a long walk on the beach. Dog friendly too which is awesome. Visit this park every time I'm in Folly Beach, often several times a visit. My dog's favorite place on the Island by a wide margin.

Not a pristine beach, but clean and well kept with a few friendly low-key waterfront restaurants. A great place for an afternoon stroll along the beach, or to watch the fisherman on the pier, or surfers braving the cold water.

There’s plenty of parking at the end of W Ashley Ave. $10 to park (keep your receipt for in and out privileges) but you have restrooms and shower/changing booths.

We spent a Wednesday on this beach. We definitely enjoyed that there were less people there. Also were able to see a lot of pelicans flying over the ocean. However we did not expect that you did need to pay to get in and park....More

Beautiful beach! This is our favorite beach area at Folly. Great for relaxing on the beach or swimming (life guards). Plenty of shells and fun for exploring. There are changing facilities, restrooms and showers.
