Isle of Palms Beach

Isle of Palms Beach - USA

These stunning white sands and calm waters are nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, just 12 miles from the charms of Charleston. Lifeguards are on duty, there are changing areas, and a snack bar to satisfy rumbling tummies. 

Alcohol, glass bottles, plastic bags and straws are all banned on the beach as well, to keep it as pristine as possible, while you’ll find plenty of places to park nearby, including a couple of car parks right by the beach.

This beautiful swathe of sand is one of the area’s most family-friendly beaches and stretches across seven miles of shoreline. Packed into this stretch is a tight seaside community that offers a wide range of activities, including watersports, golfing, boat tours, and fishing charters.

You can get in some friendly competition on the sand volleyball court, and connect with friends and family while firing up one of the grills that are available for beachgoers.

Whether hungry, thirsty or looking to spend a little money on souvenirs, beach bums can wander over to the restaurants, shops and bars that are within walking distance of the beach.
