Driving through a canopy of live Oak trees as you meander your way around the island will instantly relax you and ignite your senses for all you can see and do here. Kiawah Island is a 10 mile-long barrier island located on the coast of South Carolina beckoning to be explored. While regularly ranked as one of the top golf destinations in the United States, it is full of activities for varying interests. Miles of walking and cycling trails will have you meandering through the woods one minute and along the Atlantic Ocean the next. With five public golf courses to choose from you will want to ensure you plan plenty of time for golf. The iconic Ocean Course was site of the ‘91 Ryder Cup, the 2012 PGA Championship and is future host of the 2021 PGA Championship.

Off the course, get your fix of southern cuisine at any of the numerous dining establishments at the 5-star Sanctuary Hotel, the various clubhouses or the neighboring shopping village of Freshfields.
