Decided to take advantage of nice late fall weather and visit this beach. Quite a few others had the same idea over the Thanksgiving weekend. It can be difficult to find parking during the summer, but it is easily accessible during the off seasons. We've always enjoyed a stroll along the beach, especially when it isn't crowded. Great spot for... More

This spot was incredible. Sunrises at approximately 7:30 and it came with dolphins swimming along the water as if someone called ahead and invited them. It was a real blessing.

Just a quick visit to relax at the beach. Sullivan is so much more laid back than Isle of Palms or Folley. Quiet, nearly deserted with tons of interesting finds. Jelly fish as always and a bunch of horseshoe crabs. Love Sullivan's island beach.

ok, it is November, but Sunday was absolutely beautiful. And what a gift to enjoy it on this beautiful beach. Wish we had our dog here, as the 4-leggers seemed to really be enjoying the beautiful day. Nice walk to the end of the beach and around the corner into the Charleston Harbor, with no houses, hotels and unspoiled beach

We wouldn't have known where this beach was if a local wasn't nice enough to tell us. What a wonderful hidden gem in this city! The beach is very large and we had the opportunity to watch the sun set in early November!

Visiting different beach in SC. Very flat beach and wide. Parking is interesting to find. Once you figure out how and where to park, not to bad. Nice to visit once. Loved watching the dogs play on the beach.

Very clean even after Matthew having gone through not too long ago. Lovely views, quintessential South Carolina beach that you see in pictures.

Walked from the lighthouse all the way to Fort Moultrie. The beach was in pristine condition and we even found whole sand dollars which we never see in Daytona. Took lots of pictures of the harbor at sunset. Quiet beautiful.

Parked near Sullivan's Lighthouse. Beautiful homes, great boardwalk to beach. It is a natural habitat. Signs up staying "Beware of Coyotes". Quiet area. At least the day we visited.
