This beautiful island located 21 miles from Charleston has over ten miles of beaches, plenty of wildlife and and abundance of recreational activities. There is something for everyone here!

To Do

  • Bike or rollerblade on the 30 mile trail system throughout the island. Bring your own or you can rent bikes there.

  • Water sports. Whether body surfing, boogie boarding, paddle boarding or kayaking, make the most of the waves!

  • Visit the Heron Park Nature Center to learn about and see wildlife from birds to alligators or participate in one of the various programs and activities.

  • Take a trip in to Charleston. This is a charming city, located about 40 minutes away, has museums restaurants, carriage rides, fountains, parks and plenty of history.

  • Lounge or swim at Beachwalker Park, a public beach with lifeguards, bathrooms, umbrella rentals and more.

  • Golf. Although golfing isn't our thing, it is definitely one of the things to do on Kiawah. They have five public courses (and numerous private ones) with spectacular fairways, well manicured greens and beautiful views.

  • Plan your visit for fall and join the Turtle Patrol Hatching Team and help the hatchlings make it safely to sea

  • See Angel Oak. On your way there or the way out, stop at Angel Oak Park on Johns Island to see this expansive Southern live oak that is 400-500 years old.

Tips for Visiting

Although the beach never seems crowded, parking can be limited at Beachwalker Park, so get there early during peak season.

Prices are a little more expensive for activities and dining on this island.
