Fodor's Expert Review Boneyard Beach at Botany Bay Plantation

Greater Charleston Beach–Sight
Thousands of acres of unspoiled land, the ruins of two plantations, trails, maritime forests, and ponds surround the beach at Botany Bay Plantation Wildlife Management Area, a state park on Edisto Island. Fallen, sun-bleached trees frame ocean views on this picturesque beach, giving it its “Boneyard” name. The plantation area, including the beach, is closed Tuesdays for organized hunts; other days the beach is open sunrise to sunset. Keep in mind that because of hurricane erosion, the beach is impassable during high tide. Call ahead or check tide schedules online when planning your visit.
