Great area! We stopped by to see the beach. Grabbed a bite to eat and enjoyed the waves. Also got to watch the sun set. Very pretty!

If the parking isn't full, you don't pay much. There are cabanas for changing and showers for rinsing off. It's an easy way to the beach, but you can also park on the street and take many of the dozens of access paths between houses.

Get a membership or pay the 10 bucks and have a perfect day at the beach. You can't go wrong! The park has showers, covered patios, several outdoor changing rooms, lots of charcoal grills and the parking is easier.

This is my wife's favorite Charleston-area beach. It has restroom, lifeguards, and it's family-friendly.

Nice area that the park is situated in. Soft sand so the kids can keep their shoes off if they want.

I agree with Curtis C, Shem Creek is awesome... Pages Okra Grill is fantastic! Huge menu and very affordable. There is a decent restaurant overlooking the backwater at Isle of Palms marina.
