Wild DunesCoastal South Carolina
One of the prettiest resorts in the south, Wild Dunes is home to championship golf, top rated tennis and a plethora of beach resort amenities. Not into golf? Waterfront property at Wild Dunes Resort offers quick access to the Intracoastal Waterway for boating and is adjacent to two full service marinas. Keep your bathing suit close at hand because when you're not on a boat or on the links, the Wild Dunes lifestyle revolves around the soothing Atlantic Ocean and six miles of pristine white sandy Charleston beaches.
Wild Dunes Resort is located on a barrier island 15 miles northeast of downtown. The Isle of Palms is a more laid back barrier island, unlike Folly Beach. Living here offers the combination of a gated community and a vacation beach lifestyle. You'll find a large selection of affordable luxury beach homes. The AAA Four Diamond rated hotel named The Boardwalk Inn is the central hub of resort activities, although property owners do have a private Beach Clubhouse for social functions. The Grand Pavilion Cafe & Bar overlooks six miles of the cleanest beaches in Charleston South Carolina. Bicycles are available to rent from the boardwalk and are fun for folks to ride on the hard sandy beach.
