My Favorite Island anytime of the year. Just north of Charleston, South Carolina is the secluded Dewees Island.
Time stands still on Dewees and it is Simply beautiful. No cars, no stores, no traffic and you can only get there by ferry. You can spend an entire day on the beach and it is like your own private island. Whole sand dollars, seashells, and conch shells litter the pristine beach. Tide Pools are frequent occurrences all along the beach. Perfect little swimming pools for the munchkins.
On the other side of the island is the bay. Catching blue crabs while sitting on the dock as the sun sets is one of our favorite ways to spend an afternoon.
There is also fishing and clamming on Dewees. Everyone scoots around the island in golf carts or bicycles. There is the Huyler House with pool and tennis courts for a little more strenuous activity. Otherwise this is the perfect place to have the best relaxing vacation ever.
Dewees Island is truly a wonderful place to get away from it all.
