Wild Dunes Resort

5757 Palm Blvd., Isle of Palms, South Carolina, 29451, United States

Guests at this 1,600-acre island beachfront resort can choose from a long list of recreational options, including Tom Fazio–designed golf courses and nationally ranked tennis programs. Its focal point is the plantation-style Boardwalk Inn, which sits among a cluster of homes that have been painted in pastels to resemble Charleston's Rainbow Row. Some rooms and suites on the fourth and fifth floors have balconies that overlook the ocean. You can also choose from one- to six-bedroom condos that sit near the sea or the marshes. The Sea Island Grill is highly rated, and the nearby Isle of Palms marina has a bustling bar and restaurant scene on summer weekends.
