South Carolina boasts beautiful weather and comfortable temperatures for most of the year, and the temperatures climb through the spring, through celebrations like Mother’s Day, and into the summer. Along with the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the combination will have you pointing your compass toward the state and the city of Isle of Palms for a relaxing getaway with the one you call mom this Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day Brunch

Take a vacation from preparing the elaborate holiday meal and let the professional chefs at one of the many delicious area restaurants make the feast. There are various restaurants in the area that will be serving up the traditional Mother’s Day brunch alongside their regular menu items. Contact your restaurant of choice to find out the details like date, time, reservations, or for any other questions.

Spa Day

Mom can experience total vacation relaxation at a local spa this Mother’s Day. There are some right on Isle of Palms, and several more in the surrounding metro area. Treat Mom to a massage or another service like a facial, mani/pedi, body wrap, body scrub, and more for complete relaxation and rejuvenation.


An escape to a beach location like Isle of Palms means spending plenty of time on the beach. The warming weather and waters of spring mean you can spend a little extra time out in the sun and in the water. Sunbathe, take a walk, build sandcastles with the kids, or plant a beach umbrella and enjoy a picnic on the sand. Brave the still-chilly waters of the Atlantic for water activities like swimming, snorkeling, SCUBA, or activities like parasailing, wakeboarding, and others that will have your and mom’s adrenaline pumping.

Eco Tour

Take Mom on a tour of the area’s salt marsh, tidal creeks, and the Intracoastal waterway between Isle of Palms and Capers Island. Guided tours will fill you in about the ecosystem’s plants and animals including bottlenose dolphins, loggerhead sea turtles, and several birds. Some tours even feature crab trap pulling and net casting that will bring marine life for an on-board presentation.

Dewees Island

Everything you need for a fun Mother’s Day is right in Isle of Palms. Extra relaxation and serenity can be found on nearby Dewees Island. Just a short ferry ride away, the peaceful place is void of cars, stoplights, stores, and restaurants. It represents a perfect return to nature with activities like fishing, kayaking, beach activities, and even an untouched forest to roam.


Coastal towns are all about the water and its activities. If mom is an angler, she’ll want to get in on the many fun water and beach activities while also being able 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, nearshore, 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.

Golf Cart Rentals

Leave the rental car parked and hop on a golf cart to explore the isle’s nooks and crannies, especially those you can’t get to by car. Several companies around Isle of Palms rent golf carts. Most are street legal, so you and mom can cruise the road, too. The best part is when you cruise down the sand for some easy beach hopping. Depending on the company, you can rent the vehicles by the hour, half day, full day, or a custom length of time that fits your Mother’s Day vacation stay.


If you thought your golf cart could get you everywhere, there are still some places around town that even the golf cart can’t reach. Take a tour of the area, get some exercise at the same time, and negotiate those tighter passages by renting a bike 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 accessories like child seats or trailers. Rentals include helmets, but you’ll want to ask about lights, extra baskets, and other accessories you may have on your own bike at home.
