In just a few more weeks the official high season starts for Edisto Beach. That means vacationers everywhere are starting to get restless just imagining their upcoming trips.
If its been awhile since your last trip to the beach, here are just a few reminders as to why its the best place in the world.
The Beach Itself
Is there anything better than going to the beach? Probably not. Walking down to the beach in the early morning hours to watch the sunrise or check out the turtle tracks from the night before is one of the most incredible experiences. Long before the day begins, early risers get the opportunity to see the beach in its most pristine form.
Its also exquisite to set up camp on the beach for the day so you can enjoy sitting in the sun and listening to the crashing of the waves. Plus, when you get too warm, the ocean is always right there waiting.
Theres also nothing quite like visiting the beach at the end of the day or after nightfall. Whether the sun is setting or already gone for the day, the beach at night is one of the most relaxing places in the world.
Plus, as most anyone who has visited Edisto knows, the beach always likes to remind you of its existence at the end of the day when you find yourself biting down on a salty piece of sand that somehow found its way into your mouth.
Out on the Water
Simply put, being out on the water around Edisto is phenomenal. Whether its the gentle pace of a kayak, deep sea fishing or cruising through the creeks, its nothing short of magical.
Plus, if you get too warm during a sultry summer day, you can always jump ship and cool off in the water.
If youre up for an adventure, head out to Pine or Otter Island to explore a virtually untouched piece of nature. Just make sure you know how to anchor your boat or else youll be flagging down the coastguard.
To know Edisto is to love it. Thats why if youve been once, chances are youve been one thousand times. It never gets old. It always offers that same level of perfection that it always has, year after year.
Once you get a taste of the slow pace and heavenliness of the lowcountry, youll be coming back for more.
