The Barrier Islands of Beaufort are a Great Way to Spend the Day Outside

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, May 10, 2011

There are many things to do out and around Beaufort, South Carolina. This is a beautiful area with beautiful scenery and beautiful weather, so get outside. The barrier islands of northern Beaufort County are famous for their beautiful, unspoiled, white-sandy shorelines. Spend the day building castles or catching rays at The Sands in Port Royal or Hunting Island State Park, honored as one of the “Top 10 Beaches in America” by Trip Advisor in 2008.

One of the most beautiful beaches in Beaufort County is The Sands, a peninsula jutting into the Beaufort River. This is a perfect spot to spend a relaxing day on or by the water.

The Sands is a free, drive-on beach and boat ramp. The shoreline is plentiful with aquatic life. There is a boardwalk stretching along the marshy shore next to the beach and boat ramp. A protected reef along the walkway harbors an oyster colony, and an observation tower offers views of the islands between Port Royal and the ocean.

There are a lot of fishers here of its proximity to the Intracoastal Waterway and boaters looking to go fishing, shrimping, crabbing or just to enjoy a day out on the water won't be disappointed. In a county full of coastline, islands and waterways, The Sands is one of the few free beaches in northern Beaufort County. There also are not usually a lot of people. So get outside, enjoy the weather and the scenery and relax.
