With its six miles of white, sandy beaches, the Isle of Palms remains a place of beautiful serenity for residents and visitors today. Getting around the island is easy, with most roads having marked bike paths for safety. Bicycle and roller blade rentals are available on the island.
Golf and tennis are easy to pursue on the island. The island has two world-class golf courses, the Harbor Course and the Links Course, and the Charleston area has many other well-known courses. Both clay and hard court surfaces are available to tennis enthusiasts on the island.
Boating opportunities include kayaks, canoes, sailboats, fishing boats and even luxury harbor cruises. Personal watercraft like Jet Skis can be rented to explore nearby islands. Fishing contests often originate at Isle of Palms Marina. Or you can just cast your own line from the beach.
Of course, the beach is often the center of activity. For enjoying the waves, body boards are available for rental. To keep your toes in the sand, a game of beach volleyball is never far away. Picnic and changing areas are available at Isle of Palms County Park. Beach combing is always a popular activity. A large variety of seashells collect on our beaches from sand dollars to whelks, to olives, to angel wings. It’s fun to find shell treasures, but please leave the live shells on the beach or throw them back into the ocean.
When walking around the island, watch the sky and water for wildlife. Osprey nests can be spied, pelicans soar and dive for their dinner, dolphins frolic, and giant loggerhead sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. If you’re lucky, you might see hundreds of baby turtles making a mad dash for the ocean. The Island Turtle Team monitors turtle nests and records number of hatches each year.
Family, Senior and Children’s activities are organized through the island’s IOP Recreation Department and Wild Dunes resort.
