  • Beautiful & historical spot to sit & enjoy looking out at the ocean. Sullivans Island has some great restaurants.
  • Very nice time here. Husband fished. There are signs saying not to enter the water, however a large group of roughly 20+ kept getting in the water. There were cops driving around frequently, but they didn’t seem to actually do much about the posted rules. The group wasn’t bothering anyone else. Every group there had plenty of space. There were mostly lone fishermen there, but there was also a couple of families and a work out/yoga type group working out. The weather was nice. There was no litter to be seen both on the beach and in the parking area. There were large trash cans available to use in the parking lot, which is a great idea. My only real complaint is that the parking lot smelled of port-o-potties, however there were no restroom facilities available of any sort. Maybe there have been in the past..?? Who knows. All in all, I would definitely recommend coming here if you don’t need to get into the water. It’s perfect for surf fishing or a family day of sand castle making or even doing Pilates, I’ve learned today.
