It was our first time visiting. We planned it so we could have lunch at the Lost Dog Cafe and then take a stroll through the town and the beach. It was pretty crowded due to being Spring Break, however we still had a lot of fun. You can park on the street for free, but make sure to follow all the town's parking rules. There are plenty of options for food, drinks and shops in the vicinity of the pier. I liked the walk through the pier. You can buy a one-day pass to fish from it

Most of my family, wife, children and grandchildren are staying in a house on East Arctic close to the pier so I took an early morning walk along the beach. Although cold and windy, it was a very relaxing way to start the day. Very loose sand to get to the hard walking part near the water but wide enough for a good fast walk.

Folly Beach has nice sandy beaches with homes protected by sand dunes. This beach is narrower than Isle of Palms beach but just as nice. Folly Beach is a place to relax and is not built up like Myrtle Beach. On your drive south from Charleston to Folly Beach, you will pass by many large scenic live oaks with hanging Spanish moss. There are numerous small parking lots at the public beach access areas.

The family and I stayed at accommodations on the beach, so it was easy to get to. We came here for the first half of Spring Break, but it was cold/cool and cloudy most of the time, which is no good for a beach trip. No one could really sit out there, so ending doing a few walks over the days. The beach itself was rather clean, but there were black oil-like streaks throughout. Maybe wouldn't have minded so much if the weather was good.

Large beach with plenty of room for activity. Clean and very inviting. There are some areas for activity like volleyball and wide open areas for fling kits. Large pier with a restaurant.
