A rental destination with two great golf courses well maintained. A little upscale but has walkways everywhere and great bicycle riding areas.

We love IOP and the beach was refurbished this past winter, making it amazing! We try to go a couple of times each year. Wild Dunes is our favorite place to stay in IOP.

Clean, sandy, and not too crowded. It is a nice family beach. There were lots of access points but not much public parking except in one area near the park.

Plush soft sand, laid back, family friendly, clean, accessible with great parking. Much rather over Folly if it’s a family atmosphere you seek.

Much prefer this beach over Folly. Easily accessible, good parking, clean, and quiet. Mostly condos and not very commercialized. Will go back

Found this beach to be very clean, flat, wide and the surf to be gentle. Perfect for sitting right on the waters edge with waves gently lapping over your feet. Can walk long way out before it gets deeper. Do not ever forget flip flops...More

This was a nice beach to enjoy while in the Charleston area. We stayed at a hotel on this beach, and really enjoyed our stay back in the spring. We missed the spring break crowd so it wasn't crowded.

We went to the beach with a 5 year old and 8 year old. I am not a fan of big wave beaches so I was pleasantly surprised when I seen the waves weren’t overwhelming. The beach was beautiful and clean. We parked on a...More
