When you stay at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island, you're practically in a park. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel sits on a barrier island, all of which is a nature conservatory area. The closest designated park is the 21-acre Night Heron Park, which is home to a nature center and the Night Heron Poolside Grill and Bar. This nature center will provide you with everything you need to know about the island, recent nature sightings and other recreational activities to do during your stay.
Some recreational activities you may want to add to your itinerary are biking and jogging. Thirty-two miles of trails wind throughout the island. Several observation decks dot these trails as well, and they provide excellent views of the island. You will see tropical plants, wildlife and other vegetation native to South Carolina in abundance as you explore the areas surrounding this luxury Kiawah Island hotel.
The Night Heron Park, featuring a pool, the resort’s nature center, a fitness trail, a soccer field, playground equipment, sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, bike rentals and a stage is located just down the road from The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island.
