After long, lazy days spent beach or poolside at The Sanctuary, venture out to one of many plantations in the area, shop and stroll through historic downtown Charleston, or head to Irvin House Vineyards for vineyard tours and muscadine wine tastings. Make the short drive to nearby John's Island for an intimate dinner at Fat Hen, a locals' favorite featuring lowcountry style French fare, or dine at the Wild Olive's Cucina Italiana for seasonal, high quality imported Italian ingredients.
Kiawah Island is coastal living at its finest. Escape to the island and reconnect in a setting that's been romancing its visitors for centuries. Don't be surprised if you fall in love with Kiawah, too.
