We were looking for a family friendly beach town. And we found it! We were able to rent a house within a 4 minute walking distance to the beach. And just 10 to where all the restaurants were. The beach was clean. There was a lot of "nature" for the kids to explore. And the adults could relax. By far our favorite vacation location!

Our first time here was at the recommendation of some friends,and i must say it is nice ,huge beach,dogs welcome after 6 pm and early morning. The water is warm and the locals or visitors very friendly.There are undertow signs but still many places to swim or just enjoy seeing nothing to the east except the Atlantic ocean. Farther inland is old Southern Homes and sites.Most have been restored and downtown Charleston is so unique. The south continues to impress us in there hospitality,as in everywhere we have been in the USA.

We rented an amazing oceanfront house at the end of E. Ashley, very close to the Morris Island Lighthouse path. The crashing waves, amazing food, surfing for my kids, the food, the pier.....I could go on........everything was perfect! We've been to many beaches, many Mexican resorts, and we've never had a better time. We visited Charleston, The Angel Tree on James Island, the Tea Plantation.....We took an amazing Folly River/Charleston Harbor boat tour and dolphins & sharks followed us all day. We also stopped at Morris Island where conch shells abound. Couldn't recommend more highly!

A beautiful beach in every sense of the word. I'd put it one notch under Jones Beach in New York. I especially like the County Park at the north end in the off season. Always find strollers along the shore. Some walking their dog, some with bear feet in the serf. It's a great way to relax and smell the ocean.

Folly beach is a lovely white sand beach with plenty of shells to be found. We have found conchs, sand dollars and the curly tubular ones. There is a nice pier for fishing or grabbing a quick bite. The Tides has a nice restaurant and outdoor bar. However, what caught our eye during our first trip there in July was the amount of beach weddings. We went back again this weekend and again saw numerous couples getting married on the beach. My fiancé and I have decided that so many people cannot be wrong and will be getting married there as well:)
