I missed the lighthouse the first time I visited Folly, what a mistake. We decided to visit on our last day this time around. We had to walk pretty far, but it was worth it. The views were gorgeous, the beach was remote and fairly...More

A short drive from our rental. Parking is sparse, as it is around the beach area. A short walk down a paved road, closed to traffic, lead to a sand dune and a path to a wonderful view of the lighthouse.

What a fun quirky little walk! The graffiti on the walk was fun and kid-friendly. Nice little trek through the wooded area on the paved road. The evening we went, the locusts/crickets/birds were chirping loudly, which made it even more funny and quaint. At the...More

No parking area, just along the side of the road. The walk was short and mostly on paved path. Nice beach with good view of lighthouse.

I loved the lighthouse, beach, and deadwood. It was just breathtaking. A definite must see during your trip to Folly Beach.

In order to see the Lighthouse, you have to walk 1/4 mile. The sign says that before you enter the preserve. Once you get to the beach it is really nice and pretty. Would have stayed and looked longer but little bugs were biting me...More

We took the advice from another reviewer and walked the beach instead of down the old road. It was a lovely walk with hardly anyone else on the beach. (It was during the week when school was in session, so I assume that is why...More

There was a walk on a paved road for a bit but then a narrow section that I think would be a challenge for wheels. Would definitely need fat tires and some power to get through that section just before the beach.
