How To Spend A Perfect Day On Isle of Palms

How To Spend A Perfect Day On Isle of Palms

Share This Post

Isle of Palms features a beautiful beach, championship golf and tennis, delicious dining options, a marina and endless activities on and off the water! Our perfect day on IOP looks a little something like this:


Swing into Island Surf Company to rent surfboards and catch some waves with your crew! There’s no better way to start the day. After a successful and salty morning on the water, return your boards and browse through the shop for IOP logo apparel and more local gifts to take home.


Time to hit the fairways! Head to Wild Dunes for lunch followed by a round of golf on the legendary Links Course. Then, enjoy a mid-afternoon pick-me-up at Ben & Jerry’s.


Head out for an evening stroll on the beach before making your way to Islander 71 for fruity drinks, fresh-from-the-dock seafood and one of the best sunset views on the island!
