Conde Nast Traveler: 9 Best Beaches in Charleston

Sun, sand, surf, trails—in this city, you’re never far from a shoreline.
You’re never far from the water in this part of South Carolina—and the barrier islands beyond Charleston’s city limits beckon for an afternoon jaunt. Many are just an hour’s drive from downtown, but you’re likely to find every kind of beach experience, from family days out with plenty of amenities, to secluded spots where it’s just you and nature, along with historic lighthouses and wild beaches that look right off the set of Castaway. Grab a towel and a sturdy pair of sandals, and get on the road—here’s our list of our favorite Charleston beaches.
Isle of Palms Beach, Charleston

Isle of Palms

With its seven miles of crystalline shoreline, and tight seaside community, Isle of Palms is one of the area’s most family-friendly beaches. Not only can you expect almost the full gamut of activities (water sports, golfing, boat tours, and fishing charters), plus stunningly white sands, but there’s also an opportunity to watch sea turtles do their thing during egg-laying season. If you’ve managed to score a babysitter, head to Windjammer’s beach bar once the sun goes down: a fruity mixed drink and a round of pool is the choice way to end (or start) the night.
