Isle of Palms is a barrier island on the South Carolina coast, less than 20 minutes from Charleston.
May 17, 2002 the City of Isle of Palms received the designation of a Blue Wave Beach by the Clean Beaches Council, the first in South Carolina.
The island's average temperature from November to March is 57 degrees. The summer season from April to October averages 74 degrees. The average ocean temperature from May to September is 81 degrees.

Then when we come north, the distance from Beaufort to Charleston is so great that we have to stop on the south side of the city and take another day to go across the harbor to Isle of Palms where we stop again so that we can get to Georgetown going north the next day.
