About Edisto Beach

Edisto Beach is one of the few remaining family-oriented, gently developed beaches on the eastern coastline of South Carolina. Located in Colleton County where the Edisto River, one of the longest free-flowing blackwater rivers in North America, completes its 206-mile journey to the Atlantic Ocean.

Today, low-lying houses are situated along 4.5 miles of this uncrowded, pristine beach. With a laid-back lifestyle and a quiet, yet breath-taking, natural setting, this sea island destination offers everyone a chance to enjoy the slower pace of days gone by.

Though best known for its natural beauty and quiet pace, Edisto Beach visitors and residents also enjoy play on the newly refurbished and acclaimed golf course and dining in local restaurants.

Whether you tap into the wide array of activities and recreational outings that abound, or just take the time to soak in the area's unrivaled sunsets, Edisto Beach is revered by individuals and families, beach and nature lovers, and golfers and boaters alike who seek to escape the hustle of everyday life.
