We have made a few trips out here since moving here in May. The beach is Always VERY clean. There are many cite shops & awesome restaurants. You really get the "small beach town" vibe here.

Parking is first come first served. Can get a parking ticket if you don't park right for Officer Fife. They need the money I guess. Also don't speed while your on the Island! Just saying. Other than that we love the beach.

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.

My husband and I stayed and a nice luxury condo in the Isle of palms. It was the very windy and chilly day we were out on the beach. Be very careful as to where you park we received a parking warning. Tons of shells!...More
