THE EDGE OF AMERICA
Just 15 miles from downtown Charleston, Folly Beach is its own universe - with its own sense of time, enjoyment, and a laidback, friendly energy that has earned it the lifelong affection of locals and visitors alike. Its wide beaches, solid surfing, eclectic neighborhoods, and community of locally-owned restaurants and shops make it the perfect place in which to revel, relax, and reconnect.
Nestled between the Folly River and the Atlantic Ocean, Folly Beach is home to more than just amazing beach vacations and a laidback vibe. It's also home to loggerhead turtles, dolphins, bald eagles, sea birds, several endangered species - and a way of life that's simply, distinctly - and only, Folly.
Surf the Washout. Drink in the Morris Island Lighthouse's history. Explore a maritime forest. Build the biggest sand castle your kids have ever seen. Ride bikes. Eat outside. Catch sunset. Fish off the pier. Parasail. Do it all - that's what Folly Beach is for.
