It’s high time you added this Lowcountry destination to your beach bucket list.
Follow winding, oak-shaded roads 25 miles southwest of downtown Charleston's cobblestone streets and celebrated restaurant scene, and you'll find yourself on Kiawah Island. Carved by the Kiawah River on one side and fronting the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the barrier island is a true escape. Here, nature reigns supreme: ten miles of beaches roll out along the Atlantic; cicadas form their own sort of soundtrack; and lights-out is often determined by the sea turtles' nesting season. Even so, there's plenty to do for travelers who like their time in nature punctuated with good food, luxurious creature comforts, and a frozen drink in hand. Here are seven things to do in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.
For access to all of Kiawah's amenities, from bike rentals to pools, you'll have to stay on the island. For an experience that's luxurious but unpretentious, book a room at The Sanctuary, an oceanfront hotel known for its five-star service and elevated onsite dining. For families who want a little room to spread out (or a kitchen), villa and home rentals are a smart choice; reserve through the resort directly, or book through a site like VRBO or Airbnb.
On the west end of the island, Beachwalker Park is Kiawah's only public beach access feels like a hidden gem, thanks to its wide, unspoiled expanses of sand. It offers the best of both worlds: In addition to the ocean frontage, you can also score views of the Kiawah River here.
Five state-of-the-art golf courses are open to the public. For avid fans of the sport, the Ocean Course alone makes Kiawah worth the trip. Host to two PGA Championships, the 18-hole course is not for the faint of heart. Raised above the dunes to capitalize on the expansive shore views, golfers are also subjected to ocean breezes (which don't make for an easy or predictable trip around the green). Try Cougar Point for marsh views and a slightly less technical experience.
One of the best ways to explore the island is to leave the car in park and take a beach cruiser for a spin (you can reserve them through the resort or bring your own). Between 30 miles of paved trails and 10 miles of hard-packed beach, there's no shortage of routes to explore. Ask for directions to the Marsh View Tower, an observation deck primed for birdwatching and soaking in the marsh and river scenery.
The naturalists here will school you in many of the species who call the island home, from bobcats and white-tailed deer to loggerhead sea turtles and American alligators. Sign up for a guided tour, like "Back Island Birding", "Marsh Kayaking," or "Ocean Seining and Beach Combing," or ask for their recommendations for the best nature-spotting places in the area.
Built around a lush lawn, Freshfields Village has plenty of restaurants and shops to explore, plus a boutique stay, the Andell Inn. Pick up a beach read at Indigo Books; snag treats for your four-legged friends at Dolittle's; and gear up for island adventures SeaCoast Sports and Outfitters. Start the morning with coffee and a breakfast sandwich from Java Java; settle in for grilled cheese and a milkshake at retro Vincent's Drugstore & Soda Fountain; or cap off the day with a glass of wine at FortyEight Wine Bar and Kitchen. Check their calendar for seasonal events, like summertime's "Music on the Green" concert series and farmer's market.
Make the short drive to neighboring Seabrook Island for a taste of the area's salty maritime culture. Snag a umbrella-shaded table on the upper deck at Salty Dog Café for fresh catch, a cold beer, and riverfront views of the boats coming and going from the marina.

When I think of US islands I think first of Hawaii. Then the US Virgin Islands, and then perhaps Key West. But maybe I should be thinking a little closer to home. A South Carolina Island was the one that took the title of the best island in the US. This is according to the Conde Naste Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards for 2023. And to make it even more exciting the 2nd place winner is also in South Carolina. So which island were they? Coming in first was Hilton Head Island followed by Kiawah Island. Kiawah is in the vicinity of Charleston whereas Hilton Head is further south closer to Savannah, GA.
Top Islands In The US According to Conde Naste Traveler
These are some incredible destinations that Hilton Head and Kiawah topped. Full disclosure I’ve never been to either. In fact, the only spot on this list I’ve been in Key West. I think I’d still rather go there. I’m partial to blue water and a true island lifestyle. And given the choice of anywhere one this list I’m picking somewhere in Hawaii no questions asked. However, the resort vibes of both Hilton Head and Kiawah are still appealing to me.
Conde Naste Traveler readers voted on the best islands as part of the publication’s 36th annual l Readers’ Choice Awards. Other categories include hotels, airlines, cruises, and more worldwide. This year 526,518 people participated in the Readers’ Choice Awards survey. If you’re looking for your next island vacation, perhaps this will inspire you. Do you agree that one of these South Carolina islands is the best island in the US? Or are you like me and a little more attracted to other destinations on this list?

A new retail destination with a larger Harris Teeter supermarket to serve residents of Kiawah, Seabrook and Johns islands is one step closer to becoming a reality.
The Charleston County Planning Commission voted 7-1 on Aug. 14 to recommend a land-use change from low-density residential to a planned development district for about 50 acres in the Andell West tract next to the Freshfields Village Shopping Center.
The proposal failed to move forward last October when the panel deadlocked 4-4 after questions were raised about the connectivity to Freshfields, the placement of the connections and the architectural blending of the new retail site with businesses in the neighboring center.
Freshfields is owned by Columbia-based Edens. It paid nearly $125 million for the property last year.
The new plan for the project off Kiawah Island Parkway clarifies the points of connection between the two retail sites, puts a 100-foot vegetated buffer between the road and the development and sets aside 20 percent of the land as open space.
Plans call for the existing Harris Teeter supermarket at Freshfields to move to the new location in a larger building of up to 65,000 square feet, according to Chris Corrada, a principal with the development firm Riverstone Properties LLC of Richmond, Va., which owns the 50-acre parcel.
A decades-old Lowcountry truck terminal was idled this summer by a high-profile business failure, its owner running on fumes.
It’s poised to rev back to life.
The former Yellow Corp. depot between Rivers Avenue and Interstate 26 in North Charleston and two others in South Carolina are among the properties that onetime rivals of the fallen company and other opportunistic buyers snapped up at a U.S. Bankruptcy Court auction in Delaware.
The sales, totaling about $1.9 billion for about 75 percent of the roughly 180 freight yards and service centers that went on the block, were approved last week.
The other Palmetto State sites changing hands are in West Columbia and Piedmont, southwest of Greenville.
Yellow’s remaining real estate holdings are still in play, including a recently shuttered terminal in Florence.
The North Charleston depot had been in business since at least 1967, when it was run by a familiar name in the tractor-trailer business: Roadway Express.
Twenty years ago Nashville-based Yellow eased into the fast lane. It acquired Roadway for $1.05 billion in December 2003 and became the No. 3 player in the U.S. logistic industry’s “less-than-truckload” niche, which specializes in moving smaller loads for multiple customers within a single trailer.
Some two decades on, Yellow was broken down on the side of the road. The company filed for bankruptcy protection in August after years of financial struggles and $1.3 billion in debt, not including its unsecured liabilities.
The collapse marked the biggest-ever failure of a U.S. trucking business. It was more than noteworthy that just three years earlier Yellow had received $700 million in pandemic-era loans from the U.S. government to keep it afloat.
Rather than try to fix the financial wear and tear, the fallen 99-year-old trucking icon known for its cheap rates decided instead to shut down and sell its real estate, rigs and other assets to repay creditors.

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (WCBD)- The Kiawah Island Community Association (KICA) teamed up with biologists to conduct their annual alligator count last week.
Town biologists reported counting 146 alligators on July 18 and 143 alligators on July 19 across the island.
“We’ve been doing these surveys every year since 2003,” Kiawah Island wildlife biologist Jim Jordan said. “And we’ve seen some ups and downs like you would expect, but overall the population has remained stable.”
The route, which covers 48 ponds and approximately 153 acres of water, is surveyed twice in order to ensure the most accurate count possible.
“We actually, we reverse it the second night, so we start at the endpoint just to try to take out some potential variability,” Jordan said.
Biologists use the count to determine the estimated density of alligators on the island, which is reported as the number of reptiles per 100 acres of water. It also is used to help determine the population size on the island, which the town estimates is between 600 and 700 alligators.
“The best use of the data is to look at trends over time and you know, again, particularly with density, but also with kind of a breakdown of size classes,” Jordan said. “So we tend to kind of look at it over a long period of time, looking for any significant upward or downward trends.”
Data shows that alligator density on Kiawah Island has remained relatively stable over the past two decades despite some fluctuations in the count. In 2003, density was reported as 134, while this year it was reported as 249.
A number of factors can contribute to the slight fluctuation, according to Jordan, including how active the alligators are at night and whether or not they are visible in a given location.
“Alligator populations typically do, you know, remain stable once they get to what we call carrying capacity,” Jordan explained. “So when there are as many alligators out there as the habitat can support, the numbers tend to remain pretty stable.”
As the team moves along the route, they also keep track of the relative size of each alligator that is counted. If an exact size cannot be determined, the animals are categorized as “unknowns” either under or over six feet in length.
“As a rule, probably 70 to 75% of the alligators that we see on the survey and are able to put into a size class are under six feet,” Jordan explained. “So most of these alligators are very small juveniles and a lot of them probably won’t make it to adulthood and that’s pretty typical for an alligator population.”
Determining the relative size of the alligators is also useful in helping biologists to track shifts in population size and density on the island, according to Jordan.
“Typically, when we see a little bit of a spike in numbers, it probably has to do with just a year where reproduction was really good and so we’ve got a lot of smaller alligators out there,” he said.
As for large alligators, which are generally considered over eight feet in length, only five were counted during the two-day survey period.
But, whether large or small, there are a few key points people should keep in mind if they encounter an alligator while living or vacationing on the island.
The town encourages people to stay at least 60 feet away from alligators whenever possible, do not swim in a body of water other than the ocean, and keep pets away from water.
“Alligators are, you know, they’re a large predator and they need to be treated with respect,” Jordan said.

November is here and Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away.
Have you started planning for the fall holiday yet?
Although the holiday kicks off a busy time for many residents in the state, taking time to travel and escape the mounting stress of the holiday season was cited as one of the many reasons to visit the Lowcountry locale.
Kiawah Island, which ranked 33rd overall, was named for its waterside homes and golf courses among many other attractions.
“Kiawah Island is one of the most serene places to spend a family holiday,” the magazine states. “If you’re feeling like splurging, stay at the five-star Sanctuary, where you’ll be treated to special Thanksgiving meals and activities.”
Kiawah Island hosts a Turkey Trot 5k on Thanksgiving morning, a four-star Thanksgiving dinner dining experience and several pie preorder options among other Thanksgiving programs.
Kiawah Island Golf Resort plays host as a favorite holiday tradition for families yearly with Thanksgiving being a wonderful time to gather on the island with friends and family, while the resort begins the festive season with lavish buffets, epicurean experiences in restaurants and home-cooked meals to enjoy in your vacation rental, according to Kiawah Island Golf Resort on their Thanksgiving activities.
Also on the list, although not in South Carolina but rather in the neighboring state of Georgia, was Savannah at 19th place overall for the best places to travel for the fall holiday.
The magazine mentioned Savannah’s coastal location, hospitality and history as noteworthy aspects for a Thanksgiving trip to the city.
A visit to Old Fort Jackson, window shopping boutiques and art galleries as well as strolling through historic Bonaventure Cemetery were also mentioned by the magazine as “must-do’s” during your Thanksgiving trips to the area. The area has several popular locales for Black Friday shopping and local restaurants cater for Thanksgiving dinner.
Of the overall 35 picks, the top 10 best towns across America for a Thanksgiving trip, according to Country Living Magazine include:
