Isle of Palms County Park is located at the center of Isle of Palms and ensures a family friendly, fun time at the beach. During the summer, the park is open 9 a.m. - 8 p.m, and 10 a.m. - sunset otherwise. Lifeguards patrol the beach from 10 a.m.-6 p.m May 31 – August 13 in the designated swimzone. The park has changing stations, restrooms, showers, water fountains, a snack cart, umbrella and chair rentals, beach accessible wheelchairs, a playground, sand volleyball courts, and a picnic area; all ADA accessible. Parking is available upon entry into the park. During the summer, it’s $10 per car Monday-Friday and $15 on the weekends. Surfing and fishing are allowed outside of the swimzone. Don’t litter, disturb sea turtle nests or dunes, or bring alcohol or any motorized vehicle on the beach. Pets must be under control and on a leash at all times. Although it can be relatively busy during the summer, Isle of Palms County Park has all the necessities for a fun filled day at the beach!

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.

Source Information

Through its Beach Monitoring Program, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) monitors the level of enterococcus bacteria at 122 sites along South Carolina’s coast. Testing is conducted during the beach season from May 15th to October 15th. Monitoring levels of enterococcus bacteria is the best way to determine whether disease-causing pathogens may be present in ocean water.

DHEC monitors 27 sites at our local beaches (Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, Folly Beach, Kiawah, and Seabrook). Monitoring sites are located near public access points to ensure the public’s safety. DHEC monitors our local beaches twice a month. When sample results are published on the Program’s website, Charleston Waterkeeper updates Swim Guide.
