Fodor's Review

This is one of the most pristine beaches in the Charleston area. The beachfront is owned by the town—some 190 acres of maritime forest overseen by the Lowcountry Open Land Trust. The downside is that there are no amenities like public toilets and showers. There are, however, a number of good small restaurants on nearby Middle Street, the island's main drag. There are approximately 30 public-access paths (four are wheelchair accessible) that lead to the beach. "Sully's" is a delightful island with plenty to see, including Fort Moultrie National Monument. The island is home to some 2,000 people, whose numbers swell in summer with vacationers occupying the many beach houses Amenities: none. Best for: swimming; sunrise; walking; windsurfing.
