Park down the beach near the Fort and the beach is pretty much deserted. Not great for shelling, quiet and beautiful.

Sullivans Island Beach provides any beach bum with a picturesque setting that allows for great time in water or on the beach. Only minutes away from Charleston, their unlimited dining opportunities there as well.

We went for a walk on this beach and thought it was beautiful and clean. Not too many shells and a good area to go for a run.
