Editor’s note: Since the publication of this article in August of 2016, the footbridge providing access to the beach at Botany Bay was washed out by Hurricane Matthew in the fall of 2016. The latest reports say it could be restored/repaired as early as the end of July 2017. In the meantime, if you’d like to call ahead to inqurie about beach access and the status of that footbridge, the number is (843)869-2713. The plantation remains open as long as there isn’t a special event. Calling ahead to visit the plantation is also recommended.
