How to Make the Most of Your Time at Fripp Island Beach
Are you searching for something different in a beach trip? Do you want to avoid the large crowds of popular South Carolina beaches like Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach, and Isle of Palms? Or maybe you just want to escape to a quiet corner of the Palmetto State coast. Well, then Fripp Island Beach is the perfect place for you. Our 3.5-miles of pristine beach shoreline offer guests a place of untouched solitude. The beautiful sandy stretches are fantastic for exploring, relaxing, and watching the sunrise. Trust us; this is a place where you and your family will make memories that last a lifetime!
Tip: We ask that everyone on the beach respect the critical habitat surrounding it. Please stay off the sand dunes, do not disturb nesting sea turtles or birds (it is a federal crime), and clean up after yourself. Thanks for keeping Fripp Island Beach a safe and clean oasis!
