Exploring Kiawah Island Beachwalker Park
If you’re an active person who isn’t interested in sunbathing on the beach all day, Kiawah Island Beachwalker Park is the perfect place for you! Set up a spot on the sand, then take advantage of the many stand up paddleboarding, kayak, and surfboard rentals nearby. Whether you’re a water sports expert or you’re interested in trying a new activity, the moderate waves and ten miles of shore are ideal for hitting the water.
If you’re visiting Kiawah during the winter when the water may be too cold to get in, you can still enjoy the beauty of Beachwalker Park with a sunset stroll along the beach. Follow the wooden boardwalk over the sand and admire the unique Lowcountry landscape. Shell collectors should keep an eye out for unusual shells or try hunting for shark teeth, which regularly wash up on beaches in the area. Find out more about shark tooth hunting in South Carolina.
With the unique landscape on Kiawah Island comes unique wildlife. Beachwalker Park is a well-known area for nesting Loggerhead sea turtles. If you frequent the beach early enough, you may spot a volunteer for the Turtle Patrol, a group of people who monitor the nests and mark them so that beachgoers know not to harm the space. In addition to these adorable sea creatures, you will certainly spot several types of native birds including herons and marsh sparrows, and it’s likely you may catch a glimpse of a passing dolphin.
