i was wondering if anyone could tell me how this area compares to Kiawah Island in regard to how crowded the beaches are, how clean the water/beaches are, the nature, overall vibe of the area, etc. We spent a week on Kiawah Island earlier this year, and loved it! The only thing stopping us from booking something for next year is that we really do enjoy going someplace different each year. Here is what we loved: The uncrowded, beautiful beaches, the nature, the fact that it was not commercialized at all, and we absolutely love being able to watch gators - we saw them everywhere!
I think I am a Carolina girl now, so I'd like to check out another coastal beach area. We will most likely drive into Charleston one day - it looks to be a little over an hour and half? I appreciate any tips, opinions, or insight. We typically rent a cottage or townhouse, with pool and beach access.
Thanks so much in advance!
