Botany Bay

I can’t get enough of visiting Botany Bay near Edisto, South Carolina. As you drive in under a canopy of trees, you get the feeling that you are headed to a very special place. After checking in, drive the short distance to the parking area for the beach. It’s a beautiful short walk to the most unique beach in the world. As you reach it, you will be greeted with uprooted trees lying on the sand. The property used to have a plantation on it. It was donated to the DNR and is now open to the public on most days. You’d better check their web site though as some days they are closed for hunting. The beach is eroding so every time you visit there is less of it. I was told that there was a small island in the water where the upper class quarantined when an illness hit the mainland. That island is under water today. I highly recommend you visit.
