Charleston CountyIsle of Palms

In 1898, visitors to Isle of Palms came by way of water or a single railroad bridge. Originally opened as a recreational area for privileged parties at beach homes, this semi-tropical retreat, bordered by beautiful beaches and a network of marsh creeks, has lost none of its original charm. Test your skill at beach volleyball, bodysurfing, shrimping or crabbing. Wild Dunes Resort, on the northern tip of the island, also features outstanding accommodations, golf, tennis and a marina.
