Travelers and activities
The town’s biggest attraction is the stately Edisto Beach State Park. A good starting point would be at the park’s Environmental Learning Center where there’s useful information on recommended biking and hiking trails. You’ll also learn about the region’s eco system and history. Popular activities at Edisto include surf fishing and fishing in the salt marshes– flounder and spot tail fish are in plenty. If you’re there early in the morning, tag along with the turtle conservation staff who faithfully scout the shores for sea turtle nests. The water at Edisto Beach is warm for the most part and if lucky, you’ll find yourself swimming with the dolphins.A fun-filled festival line-up
Usually held on the Labor Day weekend, the Edisto Beach Shag Festival is an extravaganza of live music, local cookouts, arts and crafts in two whole days of pure family fun. September’s Annual Edisto Shrimp Fest is a great time to learn about the region’s colorful shrimping past – not just that, you’ll be sinking your teeth into shrimp delicacies. October brings in the Gullah/Geechee Seafood Festival, held at the nearby Hunting Island. Another fall tradition is the eagerly awaited Edisto Beach Cookin' on the Creek. This BBQ competition is a delightful community event that culture trippers will enjoy most.
Travelers and activities
The best part about the island is that with a car you can easily explore the surrounding Sea Islands and towns. South of Edisto lies Hunting Island with its miles of unspoiled beaches, spectral marshlands, and saltwater lagoons. While here, scale the historic Hunting Island Lighthouse for sweeping coastal views. Nearby is St. Helena Island where Martin Luther King wrote his “I have a dream” speech. The Penn Center on the island is a treasure trove of African-American history. Finally, make a stop at the idyllic harbor town of Beaufort founded in 1711. Mansions built in antebellum architecture-style in Beaufort’s Downtown district are decidedly photogenic.Tease those taste buds, Edisto-style!
A splendid breakfast place is the family-run One 4 Coffee where you can try their bacon, eggs, and hash brown breakfasts. The banana pudding and blueberry scones are mouthwatering too. Next is the curiously titled SeaCow Eatery whose pet-friendly deck allows for alfresco dining. Their specials include shrimps, scallops, and oyster dishes. Fancy feasting on pulled pork, smoked wings, and oysters in a waterfront setting? Briny Swine is the place to be. For live music, dancing, cocktails, and glorious sunsets over the water, swing by Pressley’s at the Marina! Their Italian signature specials are surprisingly good.

Top 5 travel tips for Edisto Beach
While it’s possible to fish at Edisto’s boat ramps and creeks, nothing quite compares to the thrill of fishing in the heart of Atlantic Ocean where there’s no land in sight. Daunting? Yes, but also very gratifying. Cook your freshly caught fish back at your vacation rental.2.Golf by the sea
The island’s only golf course is the Plantation Course, known for its player friendly layout. An added bonus is the spectacular scenery – you’ll be surrounded by wistful magnolias, tall swaying palms, and giant live oaks. Ospreys, pelicans, herons, and egrets are regular visitors at the course as are the sea alligators who sunbathe by the lagoon.3.Guided beach walks
Enquire with locals about beach walks where a knowledgeable guide will regale you with interesting tidbits of information on Edisto Beach, and its rich history and bio diversity. Botany Bay Eco Tours organizes Beachcombing Tours where you’ll spot turtle skeletons, learn about sand erosion, mollusks, fossils and sand-dwelling animals.4.Strange encounters with the dolphins
Do not miss a dolphin tour while at Edisto – you’ll be able to watch their feeding and socializing behaviors from up close once the boat anchors. Autumn is a good time to visit as this is when the dolphins engage in an intriguing learned behavior called “strand feeding” where they chase and trap other sea creatures like mullet to the shore and then feed on them.5. Paddle boarding and kayaking
Reset your inner clock to island time with a leisurely kayaking expedition in the ACE Basin (Ashepoo, Combahee and Edisto Basin). Guides on most tours are seasoned naturalists who will help you identify marine wildlife and birds. Close your trip with a solo paddle board ride by sunset on Edisto's beautiful waters.
