“Best place to park”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Best area of the beach with a lifeguard on duty. There are bathrooms, changing areas, and outdoor showers for getting the sand off before getting in your car. Refreshments available.

“The Best!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Beach place to be on the sand in Isle of Palms! Clean, chair/umbrella rentals, changing rooms, and bathrooms. Always go here when in IOP!

“Not bad”
Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Great accommodations but get here early for a good spot on the beach. It gets very crowded and people don't have any fear of getting really close to where you are set up. Nothing like the beaches of Florida like New Smyrna.

“Easy parking, decent facilities but way to crowded.”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

The best part of IOP, is the parking. There is lots of meter parking at $1.00 per hour, and all day parking at several parking lots ranging from $5 to $10. Facilities are relatively clean, and there are outdoor showers to remove the sand after a day at the beach. The beach itself is nice, but was extremely overcrowded.

“Nice town, messy beach!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

The first day we were there, it was fine. It's a decent beach, but super-crowded. From Wednesday to Friday, we saw all kinds of trash, everything from pads to Coke cans washing up. There were mostly seemingly good people there, but DISGUSTING public restrooms and showers that no one waits in line for. I don't know where the "nice facilities" everyone talks about are hiding! We loved the town, but the beach itself was so-so. Great early or late, but forget mid-day!
