Local Beaches

There are a couple of different beaches here. North Beach, one of the widest beaches around, is private with rolling sand dunes and great views of the Atlantic. Wildlife thrive here, especially the protected loggerhead turtles, which do their nesting here. Temperatures here are temperate to subtropical. Spring is a great time to visit, as temps really heat up as these months wear on. Summer can be hot, but the constant ocean breezes provide a reprieve. And you won't feel it get cold here till late fall, which then gives way to a mild winter.

Pelican Beach on the island's south side is located right near the beach club facilities, providing an open area for outdoor events, concerts and parties. You'll find lots of sunbathers and beach frolickers here, along with sightseers who just can't resist watching the sun set over the North Edisto River Inlet.

Day Trip to Charleston

After enjoying a pleasant breakfast at your Seabrook Island vacation home, take a drive a few miles away to historic Charleston, South Carolina's largest city. There, you'll find even more shoreline to dip your toes in. With more than 200 miles of beaches, Charleston boasts a beautiful coastline brimming with family-friendly activities. Do some boating, fishing, seashell collecting, swimming or simply nothing at all. Hit the popular Grand Strand of Myrtle Beach, where you'll come across one of the best beaches on the East Coast according to the Travel Channel. 

Secluded Beaches

Low country beaches like Edisto Island and Fripp Island offer more secluded destinations, great for families and singles alike.
