Kiawah Island Club Outdoor Exploration

The Island Life - Outdoor Activities

A Recreation Celebration

On an Island as rich in verdant landscapes and glistening waterways as Kiawah, outdoor exploration and adventure are part of everyday living. Club Members revel in memorable days spent biking the shoreline, strolling miles of shaded trailways, and picnicking on parkland meadows. It is the wonders of the water, however, that most captivate residents. Recognizing this, our Boating and Recreation team leads Member cruises and fishing charters, while amenities designed for enjoying the Island’s rivers, creeks, and marshlands inspire Members to drift through their days. And our innovative GoKiawah program invites friends and family to strengthen their sea legs and simply go with the flow.
