Visited while staying on Edisto Beach. Drive around the plantation is easy and the map provided guides you through it. We saw Egrets, an alligator and other birds. The beach is a 0.5mile walk and it didn't seem long. the beach is lovely with old trees and many, many shells. Worth the visit

We visited this afternoon (6/23) and only stayed for about an hour. We saw deer, alligators, and turtles as well as some really cool plantation ruins. We will be back later this week to check out the beach and spend some more time exploring.

Something a local told us about, turned into a treat and hidden treasure. The beach is amazing, all natural in an undisturbed state. Breathtaking scenery, unlike I have ever encountered. Clear blue skies made for some great photos! The 6.5 mile tour through the plantation...ehh the beach was much better if I had to choose between te two. But made for two wonderful days in the area, would definitely return. It's run by volunteers, both attractions are no cost.

If you like driving tours, this trip is for you. You can stay in your car the whole time or get out and walk at one of the nine stops
