Sullivan's Island

As opposed to other Charleston-area beach parks, which are county-run, this beach is operated by the Town of Sullivan’s Island. There are no changing rooms, showers or restrooms; thus, it’s the area’s most native beach. With no lifeguards, visitors must be extra cautionary of rip tides and sandbars. Fort Moultrie was constructed on the island in 1776, or the same year in which colonials dealt the British a major defeat. Fort tours and exhibits are available at its visitors center. (Note: Beach parking is off-street only, no lots.)
