Isle of Palms, SC
One of the many great things about living in the Metro Charleston SC Area is the numerous beautiful beaches in the area. The main shore of the Charleston metro is protected by barrier islands. These barrier islands wrap around the coastline of South Carolina making for the great beaches we enjoy.
One of the more popular beaches is the Isle of Palms. The Isle of Palms is a barrier island just to the east of Mount Pleasant. Isle of Palms has a small town fill to it with several small businesses. Most of the island is filled with beach homes that are sometimes used for primary residence, but most likely used as seasonal beach rentals, or time shares.
The beach area has a lifeguard area during the summer near the County Park. The County Park has some great resources for beach-goers such as a changing area, outdoor showers, bathrooms, and parking. Another popular hangout is the Windjammer. The Windjammer is a great spot for local 20 and 30 somethings to hand out, enjoy some music, and play volleyball. Several popular bands got their start here (Hootie and the Blowfish) and every now and then return on occasion for performances.
