Where to stay in Folly Beach

About Folly Beach

Positioned primarily on Folly Island, Folly Beach is a beachside town where a long stretch of sandy coastline meets the picturesque North Atlantic Ocean. Quirky souvenir shops, rooftop bars and crab shacks line the main drag, while cocktail bars, surfers and anglers can be seen clustered around the iconic Folly Beach Pier.

Things to do

Folly Beach is a popular South Carolina summer destination, thanks to its excellent surfing, fishing and swimming conditions. You can also get out on the water during a kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding or jet skiing excursion. The sandy beach is perfect for sunset walks or playing ball games, backed by stately Charleston-style abodes.

Are you looking for some exciting nightlife? Hang out around the waterfront, where you’ll find the popular Banana Cabana and BLU Restaurant & Bar. The latter combines fresh seafood with live music, cocktails and cold beer. There are also nightlife venues lined out along Center Street, including the live music venue, Sand Dollar Social Club, and The Drop-In Bar & Deli.

Nature lovers should drive about 10 minutes to the Folly Beach County Park, where you can see a pelican rookery and swim at a lifeguarded beach. Don’t forget to visit the Lighthouse Inlet Heritage Preserve, which offers views of the 19th-century Morris Island Light, along with excellent birdwatching and surf fishing.

Take advantage of Folly Beach’s proximity to Charleston to explore the city’s rich colonial history at historic manors and Civil War sites or on horse-drawn carriage tours. You can purchase handmade goods, Southern delicacies and unique souvenirs from the Historic Charleston City Market.

Getting around

Folly Beach is a 35-minute drive from Charleston International Airport and is connected to the rest of Charleston via taxis and rideshare services. You can walk around the majority of Folly Beach, but a private car is best for exploring further.
