South Carolina boasts beautiful weather, sand, sun, fun, and comfortable temperatures for most of the year, making it the perfect warmer weather destination for your Valentine’s Day getaway with your significant other. Along with the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the combination will have you pointing your romance-finding compass toward the Palmetto State and Isle of Palms for a relaxing Valentine’s Day getaway with your sweetheart. 


Enjoy the tastes and flavors of Isle of Palms, all throughout your visit, but especially Valentine’s Day. There are several restaurants in the area that offer delicious fare, any day of the week. Many are also offering Valentine’s Day specials that like dinner for two, or a special lovers’ dessert to share. Contact your restaurant of choice to see what’s on the menu and if reservations will be required. For a private dinner, ask about pick up or delivery so you can dine at your accommodations. 

Spa Day 

Get the ultimate in rest and relaxation during your Valentine’s Day retreat with the one you love the most. To get that relaxation, you may choose to laze around your rental together for the day. Instead, take the opportunity to spoil yourself and your sweetheart with a special spa day. There are several spas scattered around Isle of Palms and the surrounding area that offer massages, body wraps or scrubs, facials, manicures, pedicures, and more. Select spas even offer Valentine’s Day specials, many of which include a couples’ massage, champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, or other treats. Choose a spa that offers just-for-men services that tailor services to his unique needs so he can get exactly what he needs, too. 


An escape to a beach location like Isle of Palms this Valentine’s Day means spending plenty of time on that beach with your sweetie. Sunbathe, talk a walk, or run on the beach for some exercise, or plant a beach umbrella and enjoy a romantic picnic. With water temperatures only in the 60s, water activities like swimming, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, may be off your list, but are still available. 


There are some places around Isle of Palms where your rental vehicle just can’t go. Don’t miss out! Rent a bike and take a tour of the area, get some exercise at the same time, and negotiate those tighter passages. There’s an array of companies that offer rentals that suit your needs and schedule. Reserve adult bikes, children’s bikes, and add accessories like child seats or trailers. You can even ask about bicycles built-for-two! All 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 have for your bike at home. 

Golf Cart Rentals 

Leave the rental car parked, but still get around on four wheels. Hop on a golf cart to explore in a different way. Most golf carts are street legal, and include headlights, taillights, blinkers, rearview mirrors, and more, so you can cruise the road, too. The best part is when you cruise down the sand to get to your next romantic beach relaxation spot. 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 Valentine’s Day vacation stay. 

Dewees Island 

Escape for some extra relaxation, romance, and serenity on nearby Dewees Island. The locale is just a short ferry ride away, and the peaceful place is a unique change. It’s void of cars, stoplights, stores, and restaurants, representing a perfect return to nature for your winter vacation. Enjoy activities like fishing, kayaking, other beach activities, and an untouched forest to roam with your sweetheart. 


There is a myriad of fishing charters in Isle of Palms and the surrounding area that will take you and your significant other to inshore and nearshore locations, and even out to the deep waters of the Atlantic in search of your next big fish story! If your fishing gear didn’t make the packing list this Valentine’s Day, most companies offer rental gear, tackle, and all the supplies for a productive day on the water. Make sure you secure the proper South Carolina fishing license for each person before your voyage!
