About The Village at Wild Dunes

Wild Dunes Resort is on the furthermost tip of Isle of Palms, a laid back and beautiful barrier island off the South Carolina coast about a half-hour's drive from historic Charleston. With the Atlantic Ocean bordering one side and the Intracoastal Waterway on the other, this 1,600-acre year-round beach resort offers lots of family-friendly activities, including watersports, games and crafts, tennis, golf, biking and eco-oriented adventures that allow you to explore the area's intriguing ecosystem. The list of summer programs (including all sorts of kids' camps and sports clinics) is about a mile long, each option sounding more inviting than the next. And if you're visiting on a holiday -- whether it's July 4 or the Christmas season -- special programs and offerings themed to that holiday abound.

This sprawling resort encompasses several types of accommodations, including a 93-room hotel called the Boardwalk Inn, more than 350 one- to four-bedroom villas and three- to 11-bedroom homes, and 120 guestrooms and suites in the fairly new Village at Wild Dunes -- the best accommodation for most families. Opened in 2008, the modern, bright, beach-themed Village offers both concierge and housekeeping service to all guests who stay in its hotel-like guestrooms, studios and suites. Both the studios (which have kitchenettes) and the one-, two- and three-bedroom suites (which have full kitchens) have washer/dryers.

Resort amenities include beach access, a variety of restaurants and snack bars (from fine dining to deli take-out), several swimming pools, a fitness center, two golf courses, 17 tennis courts, a spa, miles of walking and jogging paths and valet parking.
