Edisto Beach can be a popular destination in the summer. With that come the crowds of vacationers. You'll find longer waits for dinner reservations, fewer open spots for lounging on the beach, and some island activities all booked up. If you want to feel like you have the island all to yourself, try a spring or fall vacation! You may experience the peace and serenity of Edisto more easily than during our busy summer season.
If you have visited us in the summer you know that Edisto can be downright hot in June, July, and August. However, you'll find that we can reach the 70 or 80 degree mark in April, May, and even into September! Relaxing on the beach or the sound in milder temperatures means more time spent enjoying our lovely outdoor atmosphere.
Without the demand of the summer rush we are able to rent you the same great properties for less in spring or summer. This can be a great way to rent a budget-buster house that is either too expensive or simply unavailable during the summer rush!
The milder weather during the shoulder season makes for the perfect temperature to get outdoors. Activities that take you outside are plentiful on Edisto—cruise down the bike path or take a sunset cruise down the creek, charter a fishing trip, go on a kayak adventure or spend a day on the golf course just to name a few!

In spring, be sure to catch the Edisto Day Bazaar Arts and Crafts festival which is held the first Saturday in May. The Annual Shag Fest held over labor day weekend draws a large crowd to the island, but this festival does not mark the end of Edisto Events. In October be sure not to miss the Historic Preservation Society’s Annual Edisto & Beyond Tour, the Fall Festival and Trick or Treat at The Creek. There is always an array of events taking place throughout the holiday season including a Christmas Concert performed by the Edisto Community Choir and of course the Annual Christmas Parade. Throughout any of the cooler months you can almost always count on an Oyster Roast! To view upcoming events and more specific dates and details, check out our events calendar.
