Ranked the  #1 Tennis Resort in the World by tennisresortsonline.com Kiawah's tennis program offers a wide variety of tennis activities, services and tournaments.  Two complete tennis complexes provide convenient access, just minutes away from your villa.  Both clubs offer hard and clay courts, fully stocked pro shops, racquet stringing and rentals, and matchmaking services.

Featuring 14 Har-Tru clay courts and two lighted hard courts.

East Beach Tennis Club (Open Year-Round)

With over 30 miles of paved trails and 10 miles of beach, biking offers one of the best ways to see the island. Pick up a map at the Main Gate or one of the Resort Bike shops and explore a bit each day. We strongly recommend wearing helmets and staying on the bike paths. Take along sunscreen, water, some power snacks and of course something to hold your seashells and other finds along the way. The west end of the island tends to offer the best shelling and dolphin sightings. The east end of the island takes you past the Ocean Course Clubhouse - a great place to have lunch or a late afternoon drink, enjoying the views of the ocean and the 18th green.
Miles and miles of beaches and bike trails offer a great opportunity to get the lead out.

FIVE MILER:  Start on the trail behind the Windswept Lakeside Townhouses.  With the lake on your right, follow the trail around Night Heron park and up to Kiawah Island Parkway.  Continue on the trail paralleling the Parkway until you come to Governor's Drive.  Take the trail along Governor's drive until you come to Flyway Drive.  Take the trail along Flyway and enter the Allee of the Oaks (see photos below).   You can run through the Allee at high noon in July and you'll be in the shade.  After about 2/3 mile you'll emerge from the Allee and cross Surfsong Rd. where you take the beach access to the beach.  From there, running due west on the beach (ocean on your left), it's about 1.7 miles to the finish line.  The beach access to the Windswept Townhouses are less than half a mile past The Sanctuary.  Total distance is about five miles, give or take a few tenths.

Allee of the Oaks

The Oyster Roast -- Mingo Point
The Lowcountry Oyster Roast & Barbecue at Mingo Point is a favorite activity Monday evenings during the summer.  The beautiful riverside setting at sunset provides a scenic backdrop for the traditional fare of roasted oysters, barbecue chicken and ribs, coleslaw, molasses baked beans, desserts and more. After dinner, enjoy live Beach and Bluegrass music.
The Oyster Roast

The Sanctuary
If you want to pamper yourself, The Sanctuary is a five minute walk up the beach.  Opened in August, 2004, this world class resort was recently ranked by Conde Nast Traveler as the #1 Resort on the U.S. Mainland.
