This time of year is one of the best times to visit especially for couples.
The weather is warm and spring-like, the crowds are non-existent, and it leaves the beach and the island wide open for couples both old and new to spend some time to get together.
Here are some of the most romantic things to do on Edisto
Take in the Sights by Boat
Take a sunset cruise. These cruises take passengers through Edisto’s creeks and provide ample scenic views of the marshland, tidal creeks, wildlife, sunsets, and historic homes. Plus, the tours are led by captains who know the island inside and out and can provide a thorough background on both the history and ecology of the island. This trip is romantic enough for her, and full of fun things like eagles and dolphin-sightings to keep him entertained. Plus, who doesn’t love a boat ride?

Snuggle up on the Beach
This time of year is great for having the beach all to yourself. Head out to the beach with a blanket to sit on and one to snuggle up in if the weather is chilly. Watch the sun come up or go down to get a glimpse of the kind of beauty Edisto has to offer. Heading out to the beach around twilight almost guarantees some dolphin action.
Visit a Private Paradise
Botany Bay Preserve is not actually a private paradise, but it used to be. This beach opened just a few years ago for public use. Visitors walk a half-mile on a causeway through a marsh and into a maritime forest before coming out onto a wide expanse of a nearly untouched beach.
There are no homes that line the beach so it really does seem like visitors have entered into their own little world. Many people choose the location as a place to have wedding photos taken and it’s also been used as the perfect place to pop the question.
To get to Botany Bay, go down Highway 174 as if you were leaving the island and turn right onto Botany Bay Road. Follow the signs to the plantation.
Take a Ride Together
Tandem bikes are available through Edisto Essentials and Island Bikes and Outfitters so that couples can ride together all over Edisto. There’s a bike path that runs all throughout the beach and up to the state park on the island. These trails take riders through all kinds of different places on the island all of which are prime locations for a little make out action.
