Happy first day of spring!

With its warm subtropical temperatures, spring on Kiawah Island is a great time for families to enjoy the abundance of activities available. Adventures and experiences here are as diverse as the landscape, and outdoor exploration and adventure are part of everyday living.

We’ve put together a list of the best activities for coastal living this spring.

Take a Walk on the Wild Side

Kiawah Island is a nature-lover’s paradise and is home to 18 different species of mammals, 30-plus species of reptiles and over 300 different types of birds. The island is also home to several conservation efforts, and there are many ways to view our magnificent neighbors.

Thanks to Kiawah’s conservation grounded philosophy, animals here are fairly at ease with people since they aren’t being hunted or bothered.

With 30 miles of paved trails and ten miles of hard-packed beach, spectacular scenery is around every corner, and a nature walk or bike ride is a great way to recharge, connect with nature, and enjoy the beauty of the island.

From reserving court time, lessons, and other programming for you at the center, Timbers’ concierge team is happy to help you make the most of your time here.

Venture Out to Sea

With its miles of coastline and waterways, the island offers plenty of opportunities for boaters to explore its natural beauty and wildlife.

From solo kayak tours, overnight yachting trips, family fishing trips, cocktail cruises, teaching sailboats, and everything in between, whatever kind of vessel and experience you seek, there’s someone we can recommend to get you on the water.

In addition to outdoor activities on Kiawah Island, residents can also take a short drive to Charleston, which is famous for its historic architecture, fine dining, and cultural attractions. The city of Charleston offers countless locations to investigate and learn about our country’s past.

Within the downtown district alone there are more than 1400 historically significant buildings. Get acquainted with some of these — along with Charles Towne Landing, Fort Sumter, and several grand plantations — in our primer of preserved places.
