Folly River — Folly Beach, South Carolina

SC Picture Project  |  Charleston County  |  Folly River

The sun sets over the tranquil Folly River, which flows along the back (north) side Folly Beach. A friendly and relaxed beach town, Folly Beach is lovingly known as “The Edge of America.” Long quiet, new developments and a lively downtown area now make it a favorite among visitors. It is also a popular surfing spot, where surfers go to The Washout to catch some waves and enjoy the sun.

Reflections on Folly River

Sasha Azevedo of Summerville submitted the photo below and says, “I often drive out from Summerville to the Folly Beach area, as I have discovered it to be one of the best places in the Lowcountry to watch the sun set. On this particular evening, I witnessed one of the most magical, beautiful and peaceful sunsets I’ve ever seen over the Folly River.”
