What Should I do?
Have a beach day! Folly Beach is one of the few gorgeous beaches on the east coast that hasn’t be snatched up by private businesses. Since it’s a public beach, parking does come at a premium, so plan ahead if you want to visit during peak beach-going times!
The Folly Beach Pier stretches 1,045 feet into the Atlantic Ocean and attracts beachgoers throughout the day. At dawn, it’s a hotspot for fishers and joggers. It’s just $5 dollars to get a spot right in front of the pier. According to the locals, you can find the best cup of coffee in all of Folly Beach on the pier at Roasted!
Morris Island Lighthouse has been out of commission for several years due to erosion, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of Folly Beach’s most popular tourist attractions. You could swim to it, but we don’t advise it! If you really want to see the lighthouse up close, call ahead and schedule a boat cruise with Charleston Outdoor Adventures.
After a full day enjoying the sun and stand, stop by Rita’s Seaside Grill for burgers and seafood or Woody’s Pizza for surf-themed pizza and subs. Blue Restaurant & Bar features an oceanfront bar with daily Happy Hour specials so you can still watch the waves without getting too sandy.
