Lots of things to do in Beaufort!
Whether you’re looking to kayak the Intracoastal Waterway, cast a line into the Atlantic, or find a beach to work on your tan, Beaufort is full of fun things to do! Beaufort has a variety of options for golfing and tennis, several wonderful public parks, and plenty of rivers and creeks to explore.
HUNTING ISLAND STATE PARK
Hunting Island is South Carolina’s single most popular state park attracting more than a million visitors a year, as well as a vast array of land and marine wildlife. A picturesque Hunting Island Beach, palm trees and thousands of acres of marsh and maritime forest, a saltwater lagoon and ocean inlet are all part of the park’s natural allure that keep locals and vistors alike coming back all throughout the year. Climb the stairs to the top of the lighthouse and take in a breathtaking view of the Atlanic Ocean. Dolphins can often be seen frolicking right off shore and pelicans can be spotted dive bombing for their next meal. Hunting Island is not your typical beach. This natural beauty is a must see when visiting the area.
THE SANDS BEACH
This local favorite is located in the town of Port Royal on the Beaufort River and offers easy acess from all points in Beaufort. Comb the beach for sharks teeth, stroll along the boardwalk, climb to the top of the observation tower, sunbathe, fish, go crabbing, or launch your boat from the boat ramp. The possibilites are endless when you visit “The Sands.” Pack a picnic and spend the day with the locals. It’s where they go.
