Folly Beach Date Ideas

The beach is always a great date idea. Here are some tips from other Folly Beach Daters to having a great beach date.

Check the weather. There is nothing worse than spending an hour in traffic only to get to the beach and have it rain on you within ten minutes. At this point everyone will try to leave the beach putting you in at least another hour of traffic. Make sure to check the weather before you leave. It is also a good way to know what the waves will be like for safety reasons.

Traffic can be a nightmare. Since Folly is only 15 minutes away from downtown, and therefore only 15 minutes away from the College of Charleston be prepared to sit in traffic. If you leave early enough, say before 11am, you should not have a problem. Also another helpful tip, try going earlier in the summer during the week days – since school is not out yet you can have parts of the beach all to yourselves.

Packing a cooler. Although there are great restaurants on and around Folly Beach, many people prefer to pack a cooler with lunch and other beverage items. Make sure to pack plenty of water. Folly is the only beach in the area that allows alcohol consumption.

IMPORANT NOTE: You MUST have your alcoholic beverage in a cup, not in bottles or cans. Failure to do so WILL result in a hefty fine. Do not think that you can get away with this. Folly Beach Patrol will find you and make you pay.

So, make sure you stop by one of the many local grocery stores on your way to the beach and pick up a package of cups.

Where to go on the beach. Folly Road will take you directly to the pier, the middle of all the action on Folly Beach. Here you will find great dives, shops and hotels. At this point you can either turn left or right. Your decision on which way to turn depends on your preferred level of relaxation. To the left of the pier is where most of the college kids and surfers gather. The right side of the pier is much quieter, a great place to relax and get to know your date. It is also important to point out that right around the pier is the only area with life guards if you have small children or are not that strong of a swimmer. As with any beach it is important to watch out for rip tide warnings and be aware and respectful of the natural wildlife.

Sunscreen. Whether it’s someone we know or by personal experience, most of us have had some sort of experience with sun damage. Many people who do not visit the beach as often as locals do not understand how quickly you can damage your skin. Sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and shade are your best friends while visiting the beach. They will save you the pain and peeling later.

Fun things to do. Folly Beach is a natural amusement park. Take a swim in the ocean or a stroll along the natural trails and discover the beauty of the coast. You can also walk to the Wash Out and see the Morris Island Lighthouse. A truly beautiful site, due to erosion the lighthouse is now located 300 yards off the shore. There are also many great beach games that you can bring; bocce ball is among many local’s favorites. You can find many games at the local Wal-Mart on Folly Road on your way to the beach.

Avoiding jellyfish and other natural wildlife. Jellyfish can quickly ruin a great beach date. Make sure to pack some sort of remedy, like vinegar in case of a sting. Peter Benchley may have started the shark hysteria but the fact remains that they are out there, and occasionally they do bite people. The easiest way to avoid an attack is to follow these simple rules.

Do not wear anything shiny. This applies to jewelry, bathing suits and other pieces of clothing that reflects the sun’s light.

Do not go swimming if you are bleeding. Sharks can smell one drop of blood from over a mile away.

Do not venture out alone and avoid excessive splashing. Sharks have poor eyesight. They will pick up on smells in the water and vibrations from the splashing, easily mistaking you for a light snack.

Please help us keep the beach clean. To avoid a littering fee as well as preserving this beautiful beach for generations to come, please make sure to clean up after yourself. There are many trashcans located near the beach accesses.

Going out to dinner. The beach can be tiring. The sun will take it out of you especially if you pair that with alcohol. Folly Beach has many fun and appealing restaurants. For a list of our favorite restaurants on Folly, visit our blog.
