Much prefer this beach over Folly. Easily accessible, good parking, clean, and quiet. Mostly condos and not very commercialized. Will go back

Found this beach to be very clean, flat, wide and the surf to be gentle. Perfect for sitting right on the waters edge with waves gently lapping over your feet. Can walk long way out before it gets deeper. Do not ever forget flip flops...More

This was a nice beach to enjoy while in the Charleston area. We stayed at a hotel on this beach, and really enjoyed our stay back in the spring. We missed the spring break crowd so it wasn't crowded.

Isle of palms is great place to visit for a nice peaceful beach experience. It is close enough to charleston to do some tours but far enough away to get away.

This beach looks much the same as Sullivans Island Beach with the same narrow road and limited parking. It connects at the South end with Sullivans Beach by a small but nice connecting bridge with a nice view. Not sure about the quality of the...More
