Edisto Beach Things to Do

  • Edisto Beach..peaceful place

    If you love the beach and not all the traffic and noise.....Edisto is the place for you! I love it there. No, there are no fast food chains, no major night life (ie clubs), no bowling alleys, no mini-golf or tons of shopping......if you want those things..you need to go to Myrtle Beach. But if you love the ocean breeze, a beautiful sandy beach,...

  • You're in BFE!!!

    Ok, I'll put this plain and simple....There is absolutely NOTHING to do in Edisto Beach/Island...we were there for almost a week, worst vacation we ever took! Got there about 8 pm and by the time we checked into the condo the ONLY grocery store closed at 9 pm, so we had to drive 2 hours to nearest grocery store; we were starving so we had to find a...

Edisto Beach Warnings and Dangers

  • Jellyfish

    My husband and I were down at Edisto with his family last year, and within the 2 days that we were at the beach, 5 of us were stung! This was in the early part of August...I've always been told that urine (gross I know) helps with the stinging and swelling...Well, when I got stung, I didn't care who "pee'd" on my leg...I just wanted it to stop...

Edisto Beach Off The Beaten Path

  • The Bay

    Palmetto Avenue runs along Edisto Beach, the popular place to see and be seen in this tiny island community. However, to escape from possible crowds, try the lesser-trafficed beach on the bay. There, you can watch dolphins leap past you throughout the day, while collecting shells not found on the main beach. It's more of a family environment, and...

    There are many inlets that come out of Edisto into the ocean. We saw a lot of people with nets and cages catching shrimp and crabs. The blue crabs are the best eating that aI have had.

    Equipment: I think there are places to rent the nets and the crab cages for the day!
