Sullivan's Island Chosen as One of the Six Best Beaches in U.S.

sullivansislandGQ has chosen Sullivan's Island as one of the six best beaches in America, calling it the "best beach no one knows about."

While taking a couple swipes at the popular Folly Beach, the magazine says Sulilvan's is "a quiet paradise across the Ravenel Bridge from the city proper. Rarely will you see more than ten people laid out on its dunes. Which means you can...set up camp at the edge of the receding tide, and pretend this little slice of sand is all yours."

The piece called Folly Beach a "moth light for beach bros" with "big waves, rowdy bars, and overpriced grub." Yikes! While I don't think all of that is entirely true, GQ was right on about Sullivan's Island.

You can see the entire list here.

    Doesn’t hurt my feelings that GQ doesn’t like Folly. There are plenty of tourists and end even more locals who love our little spit of a beach! 😀

    I’m so glad to know that and I totally agree. This the only beach I go to because it doesn’t get crowded and easy access with several nice entrances. Residents of Sullivan’s island are friendly as well.
