Kiawah’s next door neighbor, Seabrook Island, is a smaller, more residential community with additional outdoor activities. Travelers of all ages will love spending a day at the Seabrook Equestrian Center. If you’re looking for a unique experience, book a horseback ride along Seabrook’s shores, the only location in South Carolina where you can ride on the beach. Soak in another gorgeous waterfront setting when you visit the Bohicket Marina with restaurants, shops, and stunning vistas.
