Located about 20 minutes south of the bustling Charleston area, Folly Beach offers a quiet beach town atmosphere that visitors love. The island of Folly Beach is mostly residential with a small yet charming downtown area and a small number of local entertainment purveyors. Though Folly Beach is free of flashy attractions, visitors can enjoy a wide array of water entertainment, including surf lessons, paddleboard marsh tours, kayak rentals, and more.
When it comes to food and drinks, Folly Beach is anything but small. With over 25 restaurants on our 12 square mile island, you can enjoy fresh local seafood, fine dining, casual beach eats, outdoor spaces, live music, and lots of festive beachy cocktails.
