Folly Beach—the name says it all. You go to Folly to soak up the sun, surf, paddle and fish. You spend time with friends and family for a great beach getaway. You never have to leave the island—unless you’re tempted to make a short excursion to nearby historic Charleston.

Here are just some of the outdoor offerings available in the funky beach town:

Folly Beach County Park
You'll find everything you need for a great day on the beach at this county park, including lifeguards, restrooms, outdoor showers, a picnic area, snack bar, beach chair and umbrella rentals as well as a beach accessible ramp and beach accessible wheelchairs.

Surfing Lessons
Surfing is a way of life in Folly Beach, considered to be one of the top surfing sites along the Eastern Seaboard. With so many options for surf schools, you’ll find the perfect fit for you or your child. They include Isla Surf School, Carolina Salt Surf Lessons, Folly Beach Surf Lessons and Shaka Surf School

Fishing
Whether surfcasting from the shore, fishing in the Folly River or dropping a line from the famous Folly Pier, fishing is great fun for the entire family. Charter boats also offer excursions out to the Gulf Stream for some offshore fishing.
