Bulls Island

If you’re a nature lover -- or just looking for a bit of solitude -- this 7-mile-long undeveloped barrier island and wilderness habitat is the perfect beach to explore. And it’s a particular draw for bird watchers, with its nearly 300 species of birds, making it home to one of the largest bird populations on South Carolina’s coast.
