Pack baby powder for your trip to the beach. It is the best trick to removing sand from the body without water!
There are no public showers or restrooms at the beach.
Arrive in the morning after breakfast, or come in the late afternoon (a few hours before sunset). Both times are quiet and serene.

Sullivan’s Island is a great day trip from Charleston with kids and offers one of the best beaches in South Carolina for families. Going to the beach on Sullivan’s Island can easily be a full-day activity, but it’s best to do it in short bursts so you don’t wear yourselves out. For breakfast, stop at Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit for the best biscuits you’ll ever taste! Then spend the morning beachside at Sullivan’s Island Beach. Your children will love the wide sandy beach. Once your kids are hungry, head over to Poe’s Tavern for a quick, delicious meal.
