Main point of Folly Beach
Located on the far left end of Folly Beach. Unfortunately, this are is not pet friendly due to endangered wildlife, but it is a nice view if you have someone to watch your furry friend for 20 to 30 minutes.
The surf, sun and shade, does a senior canine citizen some good! Our 'Granma Snots' LOVED Folly Beach! We hope she will be with us for many years to come, for the return visits! PAWS UP for Folly!!

    Not one parking spot available-30mins of looking

    We decided to drive over to folly Beach from my parents home in North Charleston on a random off-season day in late April, as the weather was warm. Packed up the car, drove the 1 hour I've only to find not one single parking spot after 30 minutes of driving around. I've travelled all over and have never seen anything like this before.

    Nice dog friendly beach

    Beach was fine for walking with our dog. Disappointed that dogs are not allowed on the pier.

    Check time of year rules

    We LOVED our time on Folly with our dog. We went in October, so he was welcome at any time. Tons of folks had dogs and we felt welcomed.

    Check the time.

    This beach is great when dogs are allowed. The schedule is restricted and dogs aren't allowed off leash.

  • More than one year ago.
    Good place for pets

    Lots of places to sniff and walk. Hours are limited for dogs on the beach so be sure to know before you go. The County Park which is located at the far right end of the island is a good place to start.

    Folly

    I've grown up in Charleston and Folly is my favorite beach to take my dog to. It is laid-back and unpretentious. Many of the restaurants have patio or decks, so you can dine with your pet.
