Has great ice cream flavors. They seem to put a lot of effort into having flavors that you don’t find in other places. Also have a lot of great local sweet snacks and odds and ends. Great hotel shop!

Large serving at a reasonable price. Also serves light breakfast, snacks and beverages. Great place to drop by for a snack or light meal.

The beaches and cream is a small room in the Sanctuary hotel, but it is worth the local ice cream. They also have some basic snacks, drinks and candy to purchase.

Enjoyed stopping in Beaches and Cream with my daughter for sandwiches and ice cream. As expected on Kiawah, in the Sanctuary, you will pay 5x what you would pay elsewhere!
