Folly Beach

Folly Beach

The laid-back vibe and good waves at the washout to the east make Folly Beach a favorite of surfers. There’s nothing fancy on the island, just beach bars and cafes, a fishing pier, people in flip-flops and bathing suits, and miles of beaches. Even my dog is allowed during restricted hours in summer.
