Kiawah Island, SC

"Beautiful beach resort"

Living here is for the active, with five golf courses and 20 tennis courts. But even if you just like to laze in the sun, there is a wide beach, gentle surf and hard enough sand to ride a bike in our 10 miles of beach. If you want bike paths, we have about 50 miles of those winding throughout the island. Nearby is a cool shopping area called Freshfields, only a 15 minuet bike ride away for many. We are small, but have over 200 species of birds, abound with deer and to keep natural population under control, bobcats and alligators.

Stories About Kiawah Island

Local residents love to help you find your way, tell you where the best places to eat are, according to what you like, or help those lost on the bike paths get where they want to go. We love guests with dogs and children as that’s what the beach is all about.
