My husband and I were married at the beach at the Morris Island Lighthouse. It is beautiful, make the trip for sunrise and it is amazing, parking is about 1/2 mile from the beach so be prepared to walk but it is well worth the trip.

It's a fun, clean beach with a younger crowd compared to Isle of Palms. I just park on the side of the street instead of paying for parking. It's a tiny bit touristy but definitely my favorite of the Charleston area beaches.

Long fishing pier to walk out into the ocean here. Appears to be more a beach for teens, young adults

I was negatively surprised by the fact that there was not a single cafe by the beach... I was looking for a nice cappuccino looking at the see .... but no luck
access to the beach is very restricted as mots houses have the direct private access...and you have to pay everywhere to park...
the sea was rough and the seawater was very dark...
maybe it was because of the day with dark clouds...

This beach town is like a throw back to my childhood. One road of restaurants and shops. Very nice large beach with very warm water. No activities like mini-golf, amusement parks, etc. Just the beach.
