Public Beach Access

Everywhere!

Sometimes our elected officials get it just right. In South Carolina all beaches, as decreed by State Law, are public property. For those in the know, this means that a visit to the beach doesn't have to include paying a parking fee. In the Charleston area alone you'll find over 150 beach access paths on our barrier islands. So the next time you head to Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island, Folly Beach or Edisto Beach, skip the $5 parking lot - instead seek out one of the many access paths and park streetside. Be sure to follow parking rules (you'll usually be asked to park at least 4' from the pavement).
