If you're looking for high-end amenities in a get-away-from-it-all escape, you've found it here, at the only resort on the island. Extra Holidays by Wyndham manages 250 time-share units that can be rented out when available, with a two-day minimum stay. Summers are solidly booked, especially the weekends; in the off-season, the major holidays find few available units. Although none of the accommodations is on the beach, most are just a short walk away from it. The family-oriented
recreation staff knows how to keep kids amused with everything from painting classes to organized nocturnal turtle-watches. There are also Lowcountry shrimp boils and nature walks, but the primary activity here is enjoying the island's great golf complex. A tram transports guests to the resort's beach cabana, which is delightful, with plenty of chaises.
