Sun.Star Cebu - - LIVE! -

Bike on the beach. Bi­cy­cles spe­cially de­signed for sand can be rented ei­ther from wher­ever you’re stay­ing on, or from shops on E Ashley st., near Cen­ter st.

Seek out some dol­phins. Shops along Cen­ter st. and fur­ther up on Folly Beach Road of­fer boat or kayak tours into the creeks of the salt marshes where you can see dif­fer­ent species of sea birds, oys­ters, and the At­lantic bot­tlenose dol­phin. Tide­line Tours (http:// www.tide­line­ is sta­tioned right on the is­land, and tells his­tor­i­cal tales with an eco­log­i­cal twist.

Catch both sun­rise and sun­set. Be­cause Folly Beach is a long, thin is­land, you can eas­ily watch the sun­rise and sun­set from both the ocean side and the more serene marsh side. Sun­set Cay Ma­rina, near the western point of the is­land, has a deck with a bar where you can grab a cold beer as the sun sinks qui­etly into the hori­zon. On the ocean side, Folly Beach Pier pro­vides a magnificent van­tage point.

Visit Charleston. Since it’s so close by, you might as well en­joy the ar­chi­tec­ture and the seafood restau­rants, and yes, all the his­tor­i­cal sites. Book­ing a guided tour at the visi­tor cen­ter on Meet­ing st. across from the Charleston Mu­seum is a good place to start.
