Amenities at the Folly Beach Pier include:

  • Restrooms
  • Pier 101 Restaurant and Bar
  • Beach Access
  • Showers
  • Gangplank Gift & Tackle Shop
  • Fishing Rod Rentals 

Special events are also scheduled to return such as the Moonlight Mixers and fishing tournaments.

Operating hours are currently 8am until sunset, but vary throughout the year.The Pier’s parking lot will undergo renovations for a brief period this month. During this time, the parking lot, pier, restrooms, gift shop, beach access, and restaurant will be closed. Check for details on upcoming events and when this short closure will occur.
