Folly Beach Pier
Officially named the Edwin S. Taylor Folly Beach Fishing Pier, but locally referred to as the Folly Beach Pier, this landmark extends 1,045 feet into the Atlantic Ocean. That makes it the second longest pier on the East Coast. At 25 feet wide, there’s ample room to accommodate walkers, fishermen and families enjoying a day at the coast. The pier’s base includes a full-service restaurant, Pier 101, that boasts an open-air bar over the beach (drinks are allowed on the pier). There are also public restrooms and a gift shop that includes bait, tackle, and ice cream. At the end of the pier, a two-story gazebo invites sunrise and sunset visits, or simply a spot for watching surfers float by on one of the most consistent breaks in the state. If you’re visiting during summer, try to attend a Moonlight Mixer, held once a month on Friday nights, when the pier comes alive with old-timers and youngsters shagging away to a DJ spinning beach music classics by the Drifters and the Chairmen of the Board.
