On behalf of the Edisto Chamber of Commerce, I would like to welcome you to Edisto Beach – South Carolina’s best-kept secret. Edisto is the ultimate vacation destination. Come rent a beach cottage, throw a cast net for shrimp, dip your toes in the surf, or build a sandcastle. Experience the perfect combination of oceanfront beaches, saltwater marshes and Lowcountry oaks draped in Spanish moss.
A year-round temperate climate provides for excellent outdoor recreational opportunities. Our coastal waters are filled with fish, shrimp, crabs and oysters. Take a leisurely bike ride, hike a nature trail, or kayak in a tidal creek. Beach walks and golf are yet another popular pastime for that perfect day on Edisto.
We invite you to enjoy local seafood in our restaurants and look for unique items in our gift shops. Historic sites are prevalent on the Island and our picturesque roads beg for a drive. We have a rich cultural heritage in which you can share. Boat and land tours are available. Our casual lifestyle and slow pace are a welcome break from the rush of everyday life.
For your most memorable vacation, or your premier choice for destination weddings, come to where the rivers meet the ocean, let your cares drift away, and let these great lifetime experiences become your memories of a lifetime. We welcome you and hope your stay is so enjoyable that you just can’t wait to come back!
Please stop by the Chamber office, 42 Station Court, for information about our area. You may reach us at 888-333-2781 or 843-869-3867.
