From walking on the beach to renting a paddleboard or kayak and exploring the marshes surrounding the island, there's plenty to keep the family busy on an Edisto Island vacation. If you are into fishing, book a trip with one of the many fishing charters available to get you out on the water. Or perhaps your idea of recreation is to just sit in a beach chair and let the waves lap at your feet. Whatever your idea of recreation is, Edisto Island is the place for you!

Offering a beautiful beach and miles of trails for hiking and biking, this gem of a park is a great place to spend the day. Make sure to stop in at the Environmental Learning Center, a “green” building with exhibits that highlight the natural history of Edisto Island the surrounding ACE Basin.
