Folly Beach, South Carolina, bills itself "The Edge of America," and this island between the Folly River and the Atlantic Ocean puts you on the very brink of the continent. The best hotels in Folly Beach, SC invite you to join the swashbuckling seafarers of yesteryear and the wave-worshiping surfers of today, who have long navigated the island's tangled tidal estuaries and admired the dynamic beauty of its waters. Many a shipwreck has landed accidental visitors on Folly Island, and a few nights spent at Folly Beach oceanfront rentals might have you believing such a fate would be quite the fortunate thing. Why not get deliberately stranded there yourself?
Folly Beach is proud of its impressive wooden pier, the second-longest on the East Coast. Its scaffold-like beams are a photographer's dream, a vision of symmetry that makes for a mesmerizing seafront silhouette. The landmark is also home to one of several popular surf spots on the island, where you can sit in the sun and watch the masters of the waves put on their daily show. Their rolling, riding dance with the rhythms of the surf—and even their joyously inelegant wipe-outs—will inspire you to grab a board and join them... or at least grab a cold beer and join the laid-back beach bar scene while the sun sets over the dwindling surf. And when you’re ready to lay down for the evening and dream of doing it all again the next day, our Folly Beach hotels near the beach are close by.
