About Kiawah island resort and Charleston:
A magnificent collection of five golf courses and a full-service golf academy make Kiawah island one of the nation's top destinations for golf. Tennis players will find Kiawah host to Tennis Magazine's #1 rated tennis resort. When not playing golf or tennis, beach and nature lovers will find much to love about this low-key resort community, 21 miles outside of Charleston. The island's crescent shaped, hard packed sand beach extends some 10 miles along the southern Atlantic coastline, inviting wide open bike rides, long seaside walks, and lazy days lounging on the sand and playing in the surf. Foodies will be in heaven as it is hard to find a bad meal in Charleston, the most civilized city in the U.S. Even the most sophisticated history buffs, sightseers, museum goers and shoppers will find equal delights when exploring the area
There are 30 miles of paved cycling trails, nature programs, organized activities for children of all ages and a luxurious spa offering an enticing menu of massage and beauty treatments. Meanwhile the duffer in the family can have a go at Kiawah's famous Ocean Course, a scenic and exceptionally challenging Pete Dye design that will host the Senior PGA Championship in 2007. Four additional courses with layouts by Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Gary Player and Clyde Johnston round out Kiawah's golf program with engaging options for all levels of play.
Kiawah island is about 21 miles south of Charleston and 45 minutes from Charleston International Airport. Much of the 10,000-acre property is given over to fairways, greens and coastal nature areas, with recreational facilities. The 5 star newly created Sanctuary Hotel which looks like it has been there for a hundred years, adds to the already lengthy list of resort amenities, offering fine dining, world class spa, art galleries and boutique shops.
