When your lifestyle says "work hard, play harder", you need to live at the beach. There are 3 beachfronts close to downtown Charleston. Sullivan's Island is the most exclusive, Folly Beach is a surfers hideaway, and Isle of Palms with Wild Dunes offers the vacationer large homes to enjoy family reunions and other get-togethers, as well as some full-time residential beach homes into the mix. Farther afield, Kiawah Island & Seabrook Island will offer some beaches as well as lots of outdoor activities.
Dewees Island is only accessible by boat, but is an environmentalist dream location.
