The Best Places for Surf Fishing on Isle of Palms
Isle of Palms Fishing Pier
The Isle of Palms fishing pier is the perfect location cast your line. Just steps away from your vacation rental in IOP County Park, the pier provides you with the opportunity for a bird’s eye view of the water while they fish. If an ice cold beer is as you wait for a bite, this is the place to go (there are no alcoholic beverages allowed on the beach). Take in the views of Sullivan’s Island, Morris Island, and all of the beach-goers frolicking below you.
Remember: Purchase your fishing license online before your visit!
