Set between the Atlantic Ocean and the Folly River, Folly Beach is the perfect place to escape the everyday.

Step Up To The Edge.

Talk about your out-of-the-ordinary escape. Easy-going. Free-spirited. A little retro. Yet still funky-cool. It doesn’t matter if you want to grab a surfboard and hang ten, or grab a cocktail and hang out. Around here, things are different. There are no shopping malls, no billboards, no giant office buildings. Just six miles of golden sandy beaches, the East Coast’s longest fishing pier, local dives and burger joints and a hip Bohemian Village vibe. Plus, some of the most interesting characters you’ll ever meet can be found with a walk down Center Street. It’s all here at Folly Beach. It’s all calling your name. And we guarantee you’ll have something to talk about. No wonder locals call it “The Edge of America.”

Set between the Atlantic Ocean and the Folly River, Folly Beach is the perfect place to escape the everyday.

Wake up with a stroll on the beach. Then wander through the seaside village which still retains the charm George Gershwin discovered as he was composing Porgy and Bess here in 1934.

For some afternoon fun, take advantage of the large number of activities enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. You can boat, fish, swim, bicycle, jet ski, parasail, kayak and what many consider to be the best waves on the East Coast. Best of all, when you stay at the Tides Folly Beach, we can help you arrange any excursion you want.

From the beaches to the famous Morris Island Lighthouse to the casual dining and great live music, there’s no other place like Folly Beach. This is the getaway you’ve been looking for.
