Top 5 Things to Do During Your Isle of Palms Romantic Getaway 

1. Relax at the Beach 

A trip to coastal South Carolina wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the beach! Isle of Palms is home to the most pristine beaches in the Charleson area. Front Beach is a public beach on the Isle of Palms that features seven miles of beautiful, and useable, shoreline. 

This public beach is located on Ocean Boulevard, which is great news for East Islands Rentals’ guests, as most of our oceanfront rentals are located on this popular stretch! To make matters easier, out of town visitors can reach all of their beach day necessities from local beach equipment rental companies.

2. Explore Downtown Charleston 

Spend an afternoon of your romantic getaway exploring historic downtown Charleston! Our area is steeped in rich history and offers a variety of tourist and sightseeing opportunities. Couples who enjoy history can enjoy a trip to Fort Sumter, while others can enjoy a stroll around the Charleston City Market. No matter what your interests are, downtown Charleston has something for every couple!

3. Grab a Drink at Isle of Palms Bars

Start your date night in Charleston with a drink at our neighborhood bars! Isle of Palms bars feature oceanfront views, drinks crafted with local libations, and a fun atmosphere! Head to the Windjammer for a lively oceanfront vibe. This bar on the Isle of Palms is a favorite among locals and boasts drinks, food, outdoor fun, and weekly events. If your romantic getaway is during the week, consider these Isle of Palms happy hour spots!

4. Enjoy a Romantic Dinner

There are so many places to enjoy delicious food on the Isle of Palms! The Lowcountry is famous for Southern staples like shrimp and grits, fresh-catch oysters, and fanciful spins on pimento cheese. Some of the best seafood restaurants on the Isle of Palms include Acme and Coastal Provisions. 

Acme on the Isle of Palms features a wide variety of Lowcountry classics! Indulge in gouda grits, locally sourced seafood, and 10 different shrimp and grits options. Acme is your go-to for an authentic taste of coastal South Carolina! Coastal Provisions located within Wild Dunes Resort features the same great staples that our area is known for, but in a more buttoned-up setting.
