Sullivans Island is closest. Isle of Palms and Folly are about 20-30 minutes from town in different directions.

Sullivan's Island has no hotels, the Isle of Palms has 3 and Folly Beach has one. Each of these are about 20 min from historic downtown. Kiawah Island and Seabrook Island are about 40-45 from downtown. Kiawah has one luxury hotel (The Sanctuary) and Seabrook has none. Many people rent a vacation home or condo when visiting for a week.

Sullivan's Island and the Isle of Palms are adjacent to each other, with Mt. Pleasant between them and downtown. On the opposite side of downtown is Folly Beach with West Ashley in between.
