MORN­ING

Ven­ture to the north­ern tip of Folly Is­land. A path at the end of Ashley Av­enue leads to a beach where you can gaze out at the ringed rem­nant of the Mor­ris Is­land Light­house, no­table for the fact that it’s no longer lo­cated on land. Ero­sion has sep­a­rated the former nav­i­ga­tional bea­con from its name­sake.

MID-DAY

Af­ter­wards, en­joy some beach time, either out on this north­ern reach, or back near the heart of Folly, per­haps be­side the Folly Beach Fish­ing Pier. The pub­lic pier, which ex­tends 1,000+ feet into the ocean, is the sec­ond longest such pier on the East Coast, per­fect whether you’re cast­ing or strolling.

AF­TER­NOON

Surfers are reg­u­lar sights near the fish­ing pier when off-coast storms bring small but steady swells to the beach. A va­ri­ety of surf shops on the main road can sell or rent you the gear you’ll need. Fin­ish up with tacos, cervezas and mar­gar­i­tas at Taco Boy, a funky lit­tle cantina in the heart of the Folly Beach com­mu­nity.
