We take a morning beach walk at Morris Lighthouse whenever we are in Charleston. It is beautiful, peaceful and uncrowded. There is no development on this beach and nothing to buy . There is a short walk to the beach on a paved road.

We so enjoyed our recent visit to Folly Beach, South Carolina. What a beautiful area, and the Morris Island Lighthouse was a highlight of our holiday! There is no parking area, but abundant parking on the side of the road, then a short paved, decorative walk to a secluded beach area with the island lighthouse in the distance. The only negative is that there were no restrooms available, and the port-a-potties were locked! The beach is beautiful and scattered with driftwood! So many breathtaking photo opportunities of nature's glorious artistry! We can't wait to visit Charleston and Folly Beach again!

We drove to the end of the road where the paved trail begins. We were able to park easily on the side of the road at the beginning of the paved trail, although it was the middle of the day on a Tuesday so not busy. Short walk on the paved road with some cool graffiti to the sandy beach with a beautiful view of the surrounding nature and the lighthouse. You cannot get to the light house from that trail, but it is a great view. Saw very few people and it was very peaceful. Note - dogs not allowed!

A pleasant surprise on accessibility and view of the light house. We drove to Folly Beach and parked. Walked about half mile to view the light house. The area is beautiful and peaceful

I was in Folly for a girls' weekend and decided to go see the lighthouse one morning with coffee in hand. I used Google Maps and drove to nearly the end of Ashley Rd to what I deemed as close as I could get to it via car. I found a parking place among houses at end of the road (noted other cars parked beside the road as well) It was about a 15 minute walk along the beach to what I would call the point where you could see the lighthouse, still a bit in the distance but it was worth it. The walk was beautiful along the beach, which wasn't crowded and the ocean was gorgeous. Another 15 minutes or so and I was back to my car, but with a surprise...a parking ticket! I had parked inadvertently in front of a fire hydrant. There was a also a police/safety officer driving up in golf cart and his words were "oh he beat me to it". These folks take parking very seriously! And from now on I will too. There is parking what seems like way down the road where you are supposed to park and pay. I have read other reviews about the walk via the paved path, and though I wish I had known about that and been more careful with parking. However I rather enjoyed the beach walk so I would still recommend that.
