We didn't visit the populated section of Folly Beach. The town seemed like a small quaint town, but we were more interested in the secluded area. The Morris Island light house sits out in the bay north of Folly Beach. That's what we wanted to...More

Spent the day soaking up the sun and enjoying the beach. Parking is challenging. Pier was great it is really well designed for both fishing and a stroll for a wonderful view.

It was very hot that day. Met up with friends I haven't seen in awhile. I found that I like the section of the beach far away from the pier because it's not as crowded. Also they should have a few stations setup around for...More

We have been going to Folly for years. We never go without making at least one stop at the pier. The vibe changes from day to night but always a fun place to walk. We have gotten some beautiful moon shots off the pier too.

We visited Folly Beach with our 9-year old and found it to be the perfect family beach. The town itself has a laid back beachy feel. There are several local seafood restaurants (these are very casual and perfect for families), there are local t-shirt joints...More

The beach itself is long and shallow. A 5 ft tide uncovers 30 to 40 yards of sand. Excellent place to play in the surf, which is pretty tame. Quite a few surfers but not many rides. A better place for stand up paddle boards,...More

Nice beach. Crowd was good size but definitely not packed. Arrive early and parking is not an issue but looks like later in the day it could be tough. The beach is at least equal to the other we have used, Isle of Palms, but...More

Beach is clean, surrounded by great restaurants, and being able to rent chairs and umbrellas is a big plus for me and my family. A very wide stretch of beach, there were a lot of people the weekend we went but certainly didn't feel like...More
