This Charleston secret is at the north end of Folly Beach. A short 1/2 hike takes you one of the best vistas in Charleston. You can ramble down the beach and see Morris Island lighthouse and on a clear day Sullivans Island Lighthouse. In the...More

Best way to view is by walking to the edge of Folly Beach, others like the view from a boat, but I like the calm and quiet of walking. IT IS NOT A SHORT WALK, but it's well worth it. This is the best lighthouse....More

Capt Gresh took us on our tour and we had a great time, used a castnet to show water dwellers in the marsh, saw dolphins, walked Morris Island, learned about the Lighthouse from an 8th generation resident of the area.

We went to the north end of Folly Beach in the wildlife area and found a beautiful beach with a great view of the lighthouse. Even for mid-day, it wasn't crowded at all.

You can't access this lighthouse so don't even try. There are fundraisers out to try and help save it from being destroyed. Please look into it and don't let a beautiful piece of history wash away.

The light house was so cool to see. Not very far away off shore so you can see it perfectly. The beach is also very nice with amazing wildlife nearby.

We had some spare time while in Charleston so we drove over to Folly Beach to check out this lighthouse. It is on a sandbar off the coast, so you can't actually get to the lighthouse, but you can get a pretty good view of...More

Not really. The base is no longer really connected to land, and it is rather unsafe to boot. That said, I don't think anyone is really watching it on a regular basis, so if you took a small boat/paddleboard/kayak/etc over... More

I think it would be a beautiful spot for any photo. But remember you have to walk about a quarter of a mile to get to the spot so in the heat of a Charleston summer it may be quite hot and it is on the ocean so it will be... More
