Things to Do, See and where to Eat while on vacation on Edisto Beach




Your guide when you need to go to the grocery store, find a 24-hour pharmacy, or want to know what there is to do or see on Edisto Beach:

Medical Emergency:  Dial 911.

Non-medical Emergency: We personally use Holy City Medicine,which is located at 2039 Savannah Hwy,  Charleston. It is on the right just before you get onto Interstate 526.   Great doctors and staff and they are usually quick! 843-465-9248

24 hour pharmacy: The only one we know of that is somewhat close to the beach is Walgreens on James Island. 

The pharmacy that is the closest - but not open 24 hours - is the CVS  on in Ravenel.   6323 Savannah Hwy, Ravenel, SC  843-889-3113.

You will pass the Food Lion, ABC store, gas station, and ice machine as you enter Edisto Beach. 

There are a number of places to eat out at the beach:

McConkey's 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 Retta's Pizzeria on Jungle Road is in a small strip center on the left just down from the Food Lion center.   There are several shops in the strip center and an ice cream shop - 3 Gulls Creamery.

 Also on Jungle Road and just past the strip center you will see the Waterfront Restaurant, one of our favorites here, and, a little further down Jungle Road, the Sea Cow Eatery is on the right (they are open all day but their breakfast is really good)! 

 

Across the street from the gas station is the Pavilion which has a large gift 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. 

 

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 - Edisto Seafood (843-869-3446). This is also where you can book fishing charters with a wonderful and experienced captain - Captain Juimmy Skinner with Fontaine Charters. 

 

Next to Edisto Seafood is Dockside Restaurant and Bar.  To the right of Dockside is Edisto Watersports and Tackle where you can buy tackle, refreshments, rent kayaks and more.   Briney Swine is directly above EWT. Across the street is the entrance to the Wyndham Resort where you will find Edisto's nicest restaurant - Ella and Ollie's.   

 

Inside the Wyndham Resort is also where you will find 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 would like to gold we recommend making a tee time as soon as possible - they get busy!


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.  Here is a link to our Upcoming Events page. 


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.


If you continue down the road, Lybrand Street will eventually turn back into Palmetto Blvd (it makes a loop around the island) and you will eventually see a sign on your left that points you to Whaley's Bar and Grill - one of the best seafood dives you can find anywhere.  

 

Other activities -

The Edisto Serpentarium - snakes, alligators, oh my!

If you are looking for the cut above normal resort style shops,  The Edistonian Gift Shop and Gallery and Resort Wear shops on either end of the Edistonian BP Gas Station is the place to go!
