The most popular attractions near The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island revolve around the beautiful tropical setting of this coastal island. Five golf courses are on the island, and they offer stunning views of the coastline, marshland and tropical foliage while you hit the links. The clay courts at the hotel create a tennis game that can't be beat, whether you are a newbie or prepping for the U.S. Open. And nearby West Beach Village offers and adorable shops, including a popular straw market.
Of course, you can't come to Kiawah Island and not go to the beach. It's the biggest attraction on the island. With excellent year-round temperatures and sweeping views extending from either side of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel, it's no wonder that people flock to this Atlantic beach.
When you've exhausted the lovely island's offerings, make the 20-mile drive to Charleston, a quintessential charming Southern city. With a wide array of dining, shopping, nightlife and tours, many with a historical bent, Charleston will give you a change of pace from the sedate luxury Kiawah Island hotel.
