Enjoyed this beach because it is not touristy. There is a lighthouse here which was fun too. Clean beach and quiet. A nice place for a picnic.

I’ve been going to IOP multiple times per year for decades. Never again. Beach has gone down hill badly. Crowded with disruptive people and load music. Much better beaches elsewhere.

We stayed at a resort on IOP, but the beach was wonderful!!!! The beach has been replenished in the past few years on most of the island, making space generous to spread out.

We spent the day here and enjoyed the area. Waves were much more gentle than folly beach. Public restrooms near the mainstreet and water to spray off.
