Kiawah Island in South Carolina is home to one of the best golf destinations on the east coast, boasting five award-winning golf courses. It also features 10 miles of beach and dune, providing a sanctuary for sea turtles, and several plant and animal species. The beaches, of course, also provide a perfect spot for families, couples, singles and retirees to enjoy a relaxing day in the sun and surf. It's no wonder the Travel Channel hails the island as one of the "Top Ten Beaches for Families."

Kiawah Beachwalker Park

At the west end of Kiawah Island sits Kiawah Beachwalker Park, the only spot for public beach access in the area. Take a swim under lifeguard protection, build a sand castle or just soak up the sun. There are restrooms and dressing areas here, along with picnic areas and grills, outdoor showers, snack bar, and beach chair and umbrella rentals. Owned by the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission, this park sits between the Bohicket River and the ocean, boasting a wide boardwalk lined by palmettos and yucca plants. Visit West Beach Village or East Beach Village for excellent dining, recreation and nature exploration opportunities. Amenities such as rentals, snack bar and lifeguards are seasonal.

Private Beaches

The rest of the island's beaches are privately owned by resorts and other entities. Places like Kiawah Island Golf Resort boast beachfront access, with services such as rentals on beach toys, chairs and umbrella sets. They'll even deliver aluminum backpack chairs and beach utility carts to you as an added convenience, but you have to be a patron of the resort. You can also rent beach games like Bocce ball, horse shoes, paddle ball, boogie boards and inner tubes to enjoy on the beach. The Village at Turtle Beach and Vanderhorst Plantation and Osprey Beach are two more examples of private beach areas.

During your visit to what National Geographic Traveler calls the "Second Most Romantic Beach in America," stay at a spacious condo, cottage or resort to really make the most of your time here. Vacation Homes makes your decision easy with a sorting feature that allows you to view accommodations by price, nearby attractions, number of bedrooms and location.
