Folly Beach

folly beach sc

Known as the “Edge of America”, Folly Beach is just 20 minutes from Downtown Charleston but culturally a world apart. The 2,700 full time residents pride themselves on the relaxed and laid-back nature of this beautiful barrier island, with expensive marsh views, meandering waterways, and the best surf break on the southeast coast at the Washout. In the summertime, the island population swells with vacation renters and daytrippers taking in all Folly has to offer. Oceanfront homes here start around $1,500,000 and a funky little beach cottage will set you back about $500,000.

Sunset Cay Marina

Home to some of the most spectacular sunsets I’ve ever seen, the Sunset Cay Marina is found at the far western and wild end of Folly Beach. It truly feels like the ‘Edge of America’. If you have a friend with a slip, go dabble your toes in the water and watch the dolphins while you sip your sunset cocktail.

Bert’s Market

Why go off-island when you can get everything you need at Bert’s – 24 hours a day? Not just your standard convenience store, they have a wide selection of groceries, fresh vegetables, dry goods, great sandwiches, coffee and more…

Loggerhead’s Beach Grill

A laid back beach bar and grill, I love Loggerhead’s outdoor space, fire tables to keep you warm in the winter, and local beer selection. If you are a sports fan – they’ve got tons of TV’s too – indoor and out. Their Loaded Tater Tots will be the death of me. Yum!
