Laid back....that may best describe Folly Beach.
Life on Folly Beach follows a fun, relaxing pace. During the winter, it is a small town at the end of the highway.
In the summer, it is a vacation destination. Locals proclaim, "We have the best waves, the best nightlife and the
best beach atmosphere along the Charleston Coast... don't tell anyone."
Folly Beach is home to the famous Morris Island Lighthouse, colorful locals, sand, sun, and some of the best surf
on the East Coast. Also home to many species of endangered wildlife, Folly is a nature-lover’s dream complete
with a maritime forest and dolphin-filled waters. Due to the abundance of outdoor activities and water sports,
this normally sleepy beach town comes to life during the warmer months, welcoming visitors and locals alike to
water ski, fish, crab, and surf. Folly offers the best of both worlds with six miles of beach on one side and equally
stunning river views on the other.
For many, Folly is considered “Charleston’s Beach”
because it is located just 8 miles from the historic
peninsula. Although it’s close to all the great things
Charleston has to offer, once you cross the Folly
River, you feel a world away. A dazzling combination
of bohemian style and laid-back hospitality
make this quiet little beach town a true gem on the
“Edge of America.”
