We've rented a house for 4 days in Pelican Bay. Overall we've been very lucky with the weather - despite it being windy, we've had good sunshine throughout. The resort has oodles of space, a great network of paths for cycling and walking/jogging/running. You can rent bicycles, play tennis and golf. The beach stretches for miles (well, it feels that way) and you can spend loads of time just walking on it, playing in the waves (our boys loved it), building sand castles, collecting shells. Each of the developments appear to have their own pool, so you can swim even when it's windy on the beach. There are flocks of pelicans and what appear to be plovers and cormorants. The watery inlets that you pass have terrapins in them, ducks and (apparently) alligators too. We haven't seen one at close quarters, but that doesn't mean the signs are there in vain.
Within Wild Dunes you'll find a few restaurants and take away joints (expensive), so you can eat 'locally' or drive out into Mount Pleasant in a jiffy. Charleston is about 35-40 minutes away, so within easy striking distance for a late afternoon jaunt. Wild Dunes feels really safe, secluded and cared for.
