Kiawah Island Beach 


Kiawah Island Beach

Kiawah Island Beach, located about 20 miles from downtown Charleston, boasts 10 miles of pristine beaches. The island has two main areas, commonly referred to as East Beach and West Beach. Kiawah is a private gated community, and the only public beach access is located on the west end of the island at Beachwalker County Park. Kiawah Island is committed to preserving the natural environment so this area has some of the widest and least crowded beaches in the area.
