 Beautiful Beaches  

 Folly Beach boasts six miles of coastline, making it an ideal spot for sunbathing, swimming, and searching for shells. The beaches are known for their soft sand, gentle waves, and scenic views. The most popular stretch is Folly Beach County Park.

 Beach Activities 

 Folly Beach is a popular destination for surfers of all skill levels. The Washout, located on the island's eastern end, is known for its consistent waves and attracts surfers from around the region. There are also surf schools and rental shops available for those who want to learn or try out the sport. 

 The area around Folly Beach offers excellent fishing opportunities. The Folly Beach Fishing Pier is a popular spot for anglers and provides a great vantage point for enjoying the ocean views. You can fish from the beach or the pier or charter a boat for deep-sea fishing excursions. Common catches include redfish, flounder, trout, and sheepshead. 

 In addition to beach-related activities, Folly Beach offers other outdoor recreational opportunities. You can rent bicycles or kayaks to explore the island or join guided tours for activities like paddleboarding, eco-tours, and dolphin-watching excursions.
