Pet-Friendly Beaches in South Carolina You Need to Visit

Without a doubt, Seabrook Island is one of the most dog-friendly communities in the region.

The majority of the beaches around town are pet-friendly and marked as such by a color-coded system.

  • Areas that don’t permit dogs are red zones.
  • Yellow sections allow leashed dogs from May until the end of October and unleashed dogs from November until the end of April.

Where can Fido go on the beach? That's a great question. Seabrook Island permits dogs on the beach year round! There are some restrictions due to the bird nesting areas.  We suggest to review these rules on Seabrook Island’s website.

When it’s time to eat, visit one of the dog-friendly restaurants at Freshfields Village. King Street Grille, Cantina 76, Fuji, and Ladles all feature inclusive seating options.

  • Make Memories to Last Fur-Ever 

While many guests could easily spend their entire vacation relaxing on the beach, some visitors want to explore the greater Lowcountry area during their stay.

Nearby Charleston, SC, has some wonderful dog-friendly restaurants and attractions.

If the weather is nice and you’re in the mood for a stroll, explore the historic downtown district for a spell. Popular eateries like Eli’s Table, Poogan’s Porch, and FUEL Charleston offer pet-friendly seating.

There are also some lovely parks in the city that offer plenty of sniffing opportunities for your pup. We suggest stopping by Charles Towne Landing or Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Both of these historic sites are as interesting as they are beautiful.
