Fodor's Review

Edisto's south side has 4 miles of public beach. At its western end, the beach faces St. Helena Sound and has smaller waves. There is beach access at each intersection along Palmetto Boulevard and free public parking along the road. The beach itself has narrowed because of erosion, so it's best to time your visit for low tide. These clean coastal waters teem with both fish and shellfish, and it's common to see people throwing cast nets for shrimp. It's a great beach for

beachcombing. Alcohol is allowed as long as it is not in glass containers. There's little shade and no food stands, so be sure to pack snacks. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; sunset; swimming.
