We rented bikes for a half day. The rental rate is extremely affordable. We rode both on the beach and the bike trails. Golf courses, magnificent homes and alligators are easy viewing. An exceptional way to see the island.

We enjoyed our lunch here, watching a giant blue heron land and take out again. Nature center was small but nice, some live animals, we rented bikes for a half-day and enjoyed the paths from here.

We walked from our villa to play on the playground. Well maintained park with lots of sitting places for adults. We went into the nature interpretative center and loved the exhibits with small alligators, furry and animal hides and skulls. Very nice. My son's only...More

This is another part of the well-maintained Island, and it's just steps away from the beach. You can relax and stroll the area or make your way to the pristine beach to watch the sunset. A peaceful place for a diversion.

This is a nice quiet place to wander around. They do have a nice playground area for kids and a Frisbee golf course and it's adjacent to the nice pool area (which has very restrictive access). In the summer season, I guess it's a hub...More

This park has a lot of potential, but the lack of care given to the facilities is visible throughout. Like much of Kiawah's recreational areas, there are no personnel much of the time anywhere to be seen, particularly at the pool, rendering it a very...More

We really enjoyed the pool here. We have an 18 month old and he had a blast playing in the very large kiddie pool. This is definitely where you want to bring the little ones. My only complaint is that big kids were playing there...More

Lots to do at the Night heron pool complex. Water slides for the kids and the adults too. Food from the grill is good. Try the nachos. Have fun and visit the science center too.

I would like to sit by the pool. We are staying at Windswept - rented through an individual unfortunately. Is it possible for me to sit/lay by the pool Friday and Saturday, 4/28-29th? Thank you. Janice

Janice: I'm sorry, but I have no idea. I suggest you call the rental agent there and ask about hours and accessibility.

Can you visit Night Heron Park if you are not staying at Kiawah Island

There is gate security, and because we were inside the secured area, I can't definitively answer that, but if I had to guess, I'd say yes, as you can enter to dine at the many restaurants.
Hello! I'm confused about the access to this park and water park. If we rent a villa on the island, can we access the waterpark? What is their membership/how do we get membership? Thanks!!
