I am often asked my favorite places on the Charleston Coast to watch the sunrise. While there are many great spots, it’s hard to beat the northern end of Folly Beach looking toward Morris Island and the Morris Island Lighthouse. After a short (5 to 10 minutes) walk down an old closed road or along the beach you get to the end where you will find lots of old driftwood trees, rock jetties, marsh, wildlife and of course the best view of the lighthouse in town. Make sure to arrive at least 30 minutes before sunrise to give yourself enough time to walk out and find the perfect spot. This is an image I captured on June 1, 2018, as the sun rose next to the lighthouse.
