Kiawah's Award-Winning Beaches

Not all beaches are created equal. With a lush Lowcountry setting on an unspoiled barrier island, Kiawah Island beaches deliver natural beauty, recreation for all ages and boundless relaxation.

Kiawah’s 10-mile stretch of sandy shoreline ranks amongst the best in the world, earning numerous awards and honors, year after year, including Dr. Beach’s Top 10 Beaches in America.

Wonderful Wildlife
While many species make Kiawah's maritime forest and salty marshlands their home, the island's beach and coastal waters are the natural habitat for many other marine and land animals, including Bottlenose dolphins, Loggerhead sea turtles and more.
