FOLLY BEACH SC CHEAT SHEET

Each beach has it’s own unique vibe, so you can find the perfect spot for your squad. In my opinion, Folly Beach is more geared towards young people who are looking to get their drink on, whereas Isle of Palms is more family-oriented, and Sullivan’s Island is somewhere in between. — but my personal favorite and top choice for a big group is Folly Beach SC!
