We've been twice and loved it each time. Its a fantastic place for nature lovers. The shells, alone, make the trip amazing. (Just remember to leave them there, people!) Be sure to drive around to see the sunflowers in summertime.

This was one of the best places we visited on our trip to Edisto. Simply beautiful. Hard to imagine a family once living there among all that beauty, lucky folks! Stop for sure and drive slowly through, it's more than worth the visit.

Alas we cannot access the beach anymore thanks to the last hurricane. I will miss walking that magical stretch of beach!

If you do the complete driving tour and stop to see everything, you can spend several hours here. Make sure you go close to low tide so that you can make the most of the beach area and see the magnificent trees on the surfline....More

On the day we had gone, it was around 10:00 a.m. but as Howard P stated, the tides change. The resort we stayed in gave us a tide chart and we also Googled tide times for the area.
