Today, there is really not much to Morris Island. In fact, there is not much island at all - only a lighthouse which is barely even that - the iconic light itself is regularly in the process of being strengthened so that it does not...More

A little out of the way but worth it. You can't get to without a boat but a must see if you are trying to see all lighthouses on the coast.

I love walking the beach to check out the lighthouse. Such a beautiful sight. You can get some pretty wonderful pictures of the lighthouse as well. Enjoy.

I parked in the limited parking area just before the 1/2 mile paved entrance to the beach. The lighthouse can only be seen up close by boat as it sets on a sand bar island. Easily seen from shore. Nice beach where folks picnic. Driftwood...More

Great beach to walk with the best views. Loved the nature over the house in the back. Many signs warning against swimming because of rip currents.

Was worth the walk down to the end. We got to see dolphins playing. It's just a shame that the land is slow dissolving into the ocean and the light house is no longer manned. Small secluded beach area.

You can't really get to the lighthouse, as Morris Island really is an island off Folly Beach, but still a nice walk down the beach to see. Lots of nature to observe on the 5-7 walk from your car as well.

Nice short hike (0.5 mi) on a wide path (or you can take the beach route) to get to the best viewing point of the lighthouse. Worth the time to take a look and snap a few pictures.

Not really. The base is no longer really connected to land, and it is rather unsafe to boot. That said, I don't think anyone is really watching it on a regular basis, so if you took a small boat/paddleboard/kayak/etc over... More

I think it would be a beautiful spot for any photo. But remember you have to walk about a quarter of a mile to get to the spot so in the heat of a Charleston summer it may be quite hot and it is on the ocean so it will be... More
