Nestled on the northern tip of Isle of Palms, a lush barrier island off the coast of South Carolina, Wild Dunes Resort, A Destination Hotel, is less than 30 minutes by car from historic Charleston. Located on 1,600 oceanfront acres, this family-friendly resort offers a variety of accommodations including the AAA 4-Diamond Boardwalk Inn and The Village at Wild Dunes.

The Boardwalk Inn, situated only 150 yards from the beach, is a great option for guests looking for a relaxed, private stay. The centrally located Village at Wild Dunes gives guests easy access to the numerous on-site activities and restaurants.

With five swimming pools, deciding which pool to cool off in is a welcome challenge. Lap swimmers will enjoy the 25-meter lap pool. Kids will find plenty of space to splash and play at the Palm Cove pool, and adults looking for a quiet pool deck will enjoy the Boardwalk Inn Pool, reserved for the 21-and-over crowd.

Don’t forget to pack a tennis racket. The resort boasts 17 courts, a pro shop, instructors for all levels of play, and complimentary daily court time. If tennis isn’t your thing, book a tee time at either of the two 18-hole golf courses.

There are plenty of options to refuel after a busy day of relaxing. Choices range from The Lettered Olive Restaurant & Lounge, offering family-friendly, buffet-style fare, to the Sea Island Grill & Lounge, a casual fine dining restaurant with a focus on Southern cuisine. Grab and go options include Hudson’s Market and Dunes Deli – The 19th Hole.
