Things to Do, See and where to Eat while on vacation on Edisto Beach
When you need to go to the grocery story, find a 24 hour pharmacy or want to know what there is to do or see on Edisto Beach then here is your guide:
24 hour pharmacy that we know of that is the closest to the beach:
Walgreens Pharmacy phone 843-795-5452, 907 Folly Road, Charleston, SC 29412
Medical Emergency: dial 911
Non life threatening medical needs as in you don't feel well and need to see a Dr. , we personally use Holy City Medicine which is located at 2039 Savannah Hwy, Charleston, it's on the right just before you get onto Hwy. 526. Great Dr.'s and staff and usually quick! 843-465-9248
Pharmacy that is the closest but not a 24 hour pharmacy is the CVS on Savannah Hwy. in the same shopping center as Food Lion and across from the Hardees Restaurant- 6323 Savannah Hwy, Ravenel, SC 843-889-3113.
If you need groceries we have a brand new Food Lion just across the causeway onto the beach on the right. If you need to stock up on "spirits" there is a liquor store also directly next door and for ice; it's super easy! The owner of the Liquor Store has several large ice machines just outside the Food Lion.
There are a number of places to eat out at the beach:
The Jungle Shack on Jungle Road where you can take out or dine in on the screened in porch. Jungle Road is the first road on the right you come to after crossing the causeway to the Town of Edisto Beach.
La Ritta's Pizzeria on Jungle Road in a small strip center on the left just down from the Food Lion center. There are several shops in the strip center as well and an ice cream shop.
Also on Jungle Road and just past the strip center you will see the Waterfront Restaurant, one of our favorites here, and on the right just past the Waterfront you will see the Sea Cow Eatery on the right. (they are open all day but their breakfast is really really good!
If you stay on 174 and go past the Food Lion Center you will see a gas station on your right adjacent to the Food Lion and there is a Subway take out station inside.
Across the street from the gas station is the Pavilion which has a large gift shop and ice cream shop and an oceanfront restaurant: Coots Bar and Restaurant. You'll see what's left of Edisto's own Fishing Pier attached to the Lounge with outdoor tables you can be served at.
Continue on down Hwy. 174 (aka Palmetto Blvd. now) and you will see a lot of homes but little to no commercial areas as that is how Edisto has always been! No big hotels or high rises here!
Down further on Palmetto Blvd. you will see a couple of signs that point you to areas of other restaurants and the Marina. You can turn on to Lybrand Street off of Palmetto Blvd. and that will take you to several places to eat and a Fresh Seafood Shop owned by our friends Ashley and Mary Evelyn Fontaine; tell them we said hello: Edisto Seafood (843-869-3446).
There is also a restaurant/bar Dock Side next to Edisto Seafood Shop. To the right of Dockside is another shop where you can buy tackle, refreshments, rent kayaks and more. The entrance to the Wyndham Resort is across the street from Edisto Seafood. Inside the resort is a very good restaurant Ella's and Ollie's.
Like to golf? Inside the Wyndham Resort is an 18 hole public golf course, The Plantation Golf Course. For either the restaurant or the Golf Course just stop at the guard shack and tell them where you want to go and they will give you a pass and directions!
If you continue down the road that runs in front of Edisto Seafood etc. you will take sharp turn to the right and then you will Bay Creek Park on your right where the Town hosts quite a few events during the year, concerts, outdoor movies etc.
Pressley's at the Marina Restaurant is located next to the Town Park with wonderful views from the dining area. The Edisto Marina is located there also on the lower level if you brought your boat and want to put it in at their boat ramp.
When back on Palmetto Blvd. if you were to pass Lybrand St. and continue on down Palmetto you will come upon signs for City Hall and a few blocks past that you will see another sign on your right that points you to Whaley's Bar and Grill; one of the best seafood dives you can find anywhere.
Don't worry about getting lost! You can't get lost on Edisto Beach as Palmetto Blvd. does a loop and connects back into Lybrand St.
