One of the most popular destinations in Charleston, for locals and tourists alike, is Folly Beach. Folly Beach is located 15 minutes from downtown Charleston, and is a completely public beach on beautiful Folly Island. The beach on Folly Island is enormous and stretches across the span of the island with the famous Folly Beach Pier in the middle.
Nestled right on the Atlantic Ocean; Folly is a traditional beach island that features tons of surf shops, restaurants, and water related activities (kayaking, parasailing, etc.) Folly is home to loggerhead turtles, dolphins, bald eagles, sea birds, several endangered species - and a way of life that's simply, distinctly - and only, Folly. If this is something that interests you, as always feel free to reach out to me personally for a tour of the island.
