Best charleston beach!!!! Of course it has the charleston light and the friendliest people ever. Residence, business owners, police, firefighters and visitors are all friendly. The beach is beautiful and has the best sunset at station 12....check it out and tell me I'm wrong

Not crowded at all this time of the year. Beaches were clean, good bit of shells. We just enjoyed the peace and beauty. Very relaxing place to go to get away from the crowds in Charleston for a bit.

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