Kiawah Island is actually a private resort island destination. The entire island is home to a collection of vacation rental and resort accommodations sharing activities, golf and tennis, water programs and family programs, as well as fine and casual dining.

Kiawah Island is also home to many family-friendly activities and recreation. Family Craft nights are often held at Night Heron Park Pavilion, for example, and the Heron Park Nature Center and the Kiawah Island Nature Program provides families with excursions through the area's salt marshes and wetlands. Fishing, canoeing, kayaking and junior naturalist programs are available.

Families also enjoy renting bicycles and exploring Kiawah Island on two wheels. The island features more than 30 miles of biking and walking trails, as well as 10 miles of beach on which to play and relax. A kids' club is available for children ages 3 to 11, and during various seasons, programs are provided for kids and their parents to enjoy, such as dive-in movies, sand sculpting, fall festivals and holiday events. Teens even have special programming provided to them so they can make friends with other kids on Kiawah Island family vacations and enjoy time away from their folks in a safe island environment.
