What a great place! Clean, safe, friendly people, abundant flora & fauna and LOTS to do. 30-45 mins to Charleston. The ten miles of beach is awesome x2!

Ahhhh.... We are rare Florida Natives so it is hard to find anything that compares to beautiful blue water and wide sandy beaches. Kiawah checks that spot! Gorgeous Sunsets and Sunrises! Stunning beach. The sand is so lovely. We loved how it felt on our feet. BLUE water which is a bit rare here on the Carolina Coast! The Sanctuary... More

This was our first trip to Kiawah Island and it was fabulous! We stayed at the Sanctuary and everything about this resort was terrific. The service, staff, food and amenities were a great treat!

This trip has been more than I expected. I have many friends who have vacationed here, but overall it is amazing. It's a smaller version of beach life coupled with a small town feel. It's easy for the Average Joe to feel out of place, but still an experience to write home about. So far it's been fantastic dining, great... More

It is a private island so the beaches aren't overpopulated. The island is beautiful and interconnected by bike paths.

Absolutely one of the most beautiful islands on the coast! Deer and wild life, palm trees and the ocean could not be beat! You can't go wrong making this a private vacation choice.

My first visit to Kiawah has left me disappointed. The only public beach access has limited hours. Most of the island is private and gated. I would recommend Folly Beach or Hilton Head over Kiawah.

Kiawah is one of my favorite places to visit! It is not touristy like Hilton Head - it is quiet with lots to do. We went to the beach each day and rode our bikes - played in the water and in the evening enjoyed the pool at our vacation rental. Really loved it there and can't wait to go... More

I visited here with friends. The beaches are wide and clean. The shuttle service at the Island will take you anywhere you want to go. What a beautiful place.
