Follow A Sandy Path To The Waterfront When You Visit Botany Bay In South Carolina

One of the most extraordinary beaches in South Carolina is found on Edisto Island inside the Botany Bay Heritage Preserve and Wildlife Management Area. After a one-mile hike on a sand and crushed oyster shell pathway, visitors emerge onto a secluded beach that’s best described as otherworldly.

Botany Bay is open from 30 minutes before the sun rises to 30 minutes after the sun sets. Visitors must stop at a self-registering kiosk to obtain a free pass upon entering the preserve. Learn more at this link.
