As an endlessly adaptable wise wanderer, you've had happy evenings sharing beers with backpackers in India and have made yourself cozy in a cabin in the Alaskan wilderness, so it won't be any stretch to find pleasure in the ritzy resorts of Kiawah Island, South Carolina. Hotels in Kiawah Island, SC are predominantly sprawling resorts. In fact, five golf courses cover most of the land. However, the natural beauty of the island is the real reason for it all. Its wooded interior, ever-shifting tidal creeks, and soft, sandy beaches invite you to ignore the bounteous options for recreation, be still, and allow yourself to be hypnotized by gently lapping waves.
It doesn't matter if your handicap's in the single digits or if you've never even swung a club, Kiawah Island's windswept coastal scenery and balmy weather will entice you to spend your days outdoors. Whether it's 18 holes on one of the golf courses or a long, leisurely stroll along nature trails and wooden boardwalks, you'll be compelled to leave the comfort of Kiawah Island hotels and breathe in the fresh sea air. Let it enliven your spirit and calm your soul as you amble on, seeing the landscape change with each meandering mile. In the maritime forests you might spy whitetail deer flitting among the trees. Closer to the shores, primrose and morning glory add pretty blooms to spiny saltgrass, feathery sea oats, and sparse grasses fringing shifting white sands. When you're ready for a livelier scene, arrange rental cars in Kiawah Island and drive to nearby Charleston. With great Charleston hotel deals, stay for the night and dine on the finest lowcountry cuisine, a flavorsome cuddle of comfort food and seafood.
