South Carolina boasts beautiful weather, sand, sun, fun, and comfortable temperatures for most of the year, including the summer’s end holiday of Labor Day. Along with the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the combination will have you pointing your compass toward the Palmetto State and the city of Isle of Palms for a relaxing getaway with loved ones this Labor Day. 


An escape to a beach location like Isle of Palms this Labor Day means spending plenty of time on that beach. The still-warm weather and waters of the Labor Day holiday mean you can spend a little extra time out in the sun and in the water. Sunbathe, take a walk, or run on the beach for some exercise, build sandcastles with the kids, or plant a beach umbrella and enjoy a picnic or a good book. Splash in the waters of the Atlantic for water activities like swimming, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, or more adventurous activities like parasailing, wakeboarding, and more that will have you and your loved ones’ adrenaline pumping. 


There are some places around town that your rental vehicle can’t reach. Rent a bike and take a tour of the area, get some exercise at the same time, and negotiate those tighter passages for the ultimate Isle of Palms experience. There is an array of companies that offer rentals that suit your needs and schedule. Choose from adult bikes, children’s bikes, and add accessories like child seats or trailers. Rentals include helmets, but you’ll want to ask about other safety gear and accessories like lights, extra baskets, and other accessories or gear you may have for your own bike at home. 

Dewees Island 

Everything you need for a fun Labor Day adventure is right in Isle of Palms and the surrounding area but escape for some extra relaxation and serenity on nearby Dewees Island. The locale is just a short ferry ride away, and the peaceful place is void of cars, stoplights, stores, and restaurants, representing a perfect return to nature with available activities like fishing, kayaking, beach activities, and an untouched forest to roam. 

Eco Tour 

Strike out on a tour of the area’s salt marsh, tidal creeks, and the intracoastal waterway between Isle of Palms and Capers Island. Guided tours focus on and fill you in about the area’s ecosystem of plants and animals, including sea life like bottlenose dolphins or loggerhead sea turtles, and several birds. Some tours also feature crab trap pulling and net casting to bring marine life in for an on-board presentation before being released back to their home. 


Coastal towns like Isle of Palms are all about the water and its many activities. If you or any of your traveling companions are anglers, those people will want to get in on the many fun water and beach activities while also taking some time to drop a line. There is a myriad of fishing charters in Isle of Palms and the surrounding area that will take you to inshore and nearshore locations, and even out to the depths of the Atlantic in search of your next big fish story. If the fishing gear didn’t make the trip, most companies offer rental gear, tackle, and supplies for a productive day on the water. Make sure you secure the proper South Carolina fishing license before heading out. 

Golf Cart Rentals 

Leave the rental car parked and hop on a golf cart to explore the island’s nooks and crannies you can’t get to by car. Several area companies rent golf carts for a different way to experience everything the island has to offer. Most are street legal, so you can cruise the road, too, but the best part is when you cruise down the sand for easy beach hopping. Depending on the company, you can rent the vehicles by the hour, half day, full day, or customize a length of time that fits your Labor Day vacation stay. 

Spa Day 

Experience total vacation relaxation at a local spa this Labor Day. There are several spas right on Isle of Palms, and several more in the surrounding metro area that are ready to pamper you. Treat yourself to a massage or another service like a facial, mani/pedi, body wrap, body scrub, and more for complete relaxation and rejuvenation on your Isle of Palms getaway. Many offer special services for men that fit their unique needs, so everyone can leave relaxed.
