Before we left Kiawah we wanted to walk on the beach. I'm not fond of the Atlantic but this beach is worth the visit. It is hidden and hard to find unless you know where to look. Long smooth beach with clean water. Just a short walk on the board walk and then you have a fantastic view.

We've been exploring different beaches in the area and this is one of the best. Nice boardwalk with restrooms and outdoor showers to rinse off in before leaving the park. Great beach with safe swimming for the little ones. Plenty of space to set up chairs and shade. Commercial umbrellas and chairs available for $25/day delivered by gator. Nice waves... More

I have been going to this beach access since I was a kid. We bring all of our family here when they visit. All the way from California they love this spot! Umbrellas and chairs are reasonable and showers are clean! The best snack bar ever! Beautiful beach and awesome workers! If you come to Charleston to go to the... More

Loved this calm, sandy, picture perfect beach. There were no rocks, flat beach. Too difficult to describe this piece of heaven but was absolutely awesome, can't wait to go back. The trip to get to this beach was picturesque with spanish moss clinging to trees canopying the streets. Was so beautiful just to get there, takes ones breath away. My... More

Awesome beach. Not crowded and not annoying bugs. Beach was very clean. Dogs are welcome as long as they remain on leash. Beach does shrink when tide comes in, other then that i totally recommend this spot.

Low key, no nonsense clean warm water family friendly beach. Even at peak time (weekend on breezy sunny afternoon) it does not feel crowded. Entrance $8-10 per car. Umbrella $10. Great showers and change area. Highly recommended.

This beach is perfect for those of us who don't like crowded beaches. It has everything for enjoying a day at the beach: - restroom facilities - shower heads - concession machines with snacks - lifeguard - boardwalk entrance to the sand - beautiful, calm beaches We saw mostly families with children and pets. This is one of Charleston's best... More
