|About these ratings|
The biggest complaints travelers have about the beach on Sullivan's Island are its lack of waves. But if you're in the mood for a peaceful ocean experience, this beach might be for you. One Yelp traveler calls it "the quintessential lowcountry beach." Another mentions its proximity to restaurants like Poe's. And if you're a lover of lighthouses, you can check out the black-and-white striped Sullivan's Island Lighthouse.
Just north of Charleston, this barrier island requires those with a pooch to purchase a license. Dog owners should also note that the dogs are not allowed on the beach during the summer season, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. To stake your claim on a patch of sand, park alongside the street and walk down to the beach.
