From U.S. 17 South, take S.C. 174 to Edisto Island. Turn left at Botany Bay Road, 8.5 miles past the McKinley Washington Bridge and just past the Edisto Serpentarium. At the roadâ€™s end, turn in at the gate to the left. An information kiosk is on the right. The area is open dawn to dark, 7 days a week.
a short hike~ less than one mile from the parking lot gets you to the skeletal trees of the Boneyeard, but note: gate closes an hour after sunset and does not reopen until half hour before sunrise.
A solitary sunset on one of the most hauntingly beautiful beaches on the east coast~ the Boneyard on Edisto Island near Charleston, SC. Like most of the Southeast, the Boneyard is steeped in history of slavery and suffering. Be respectful of the delicate and disappearing landscape for it is hallowed ground.
