Delicious ice cream with very generous serving sizes. One scoop is like two, two like three, etc. It's pricey but the service is great and the food delicious. We went most evenings after dinner and had ice cream on the rocking chairs outside on the sanctuary greens. It's a great place for the kids to run around and have fun... More

Disappointed here. Long lines in the hotel for fair ice cream with limited selections. Better off buying bulk ice cream at the Market Place, and eat with spoon out of container.

Just a short walk from the beach and located in The Sanctuary, Beaches & Cream offers a quick afternoon treat that beats the heat. Grab an ice cream cone and stroll on the beach, or enjoy your ice cream in the air conditioned, small seating area. Wild Strawberry, Raspberry Sorbet, Killa Vanilla, Laurel's Sea Salted Caramel, Pralines & Cream were... More

My family visited Beaches and Cream while vacationing on Kiawah Island. My 3 1/2 year old grandson LOVED the Banana Pudding ice cream - it even had pieces of vanilla wafers in it. My son and I I had the capuccino chip, also yummy. We were off season so the shoppe had somewhat limited hours but worth the wait!

You just try the sweet iced tea with pecans ice cream. It is the very best. Conveniently located just inside the door when returning from the pool or beach.

1 iced tea, 1 bottled lemon-aid & an egg sandwich = $ 23! Buy what you need before you go thru the gate.

Great selection of all things yummy. Fabulous ice cream. We had dark chocolate, banana pudding and pecan sweet tea (interesting flavor for ice cream), all served with a smile. It's pricey but, hey, it's Kiawah!! Worth the splurge of money and calories!

Great little ice cream shop within the Sanctuary Hotel. My family and I walked from Windswept Villas on beach to Beaches & Cream. Enjoyed some ice cream and an awesome walk on the beach. Selection is fairly limited, but was good quality ice cream.
