Weather

Local weather for your stay in Isle of Palms vacation rentals

Isle of Palms isn't the sort of place where you're going to be needing igloos and husky dogs. Even in the middle of winter, temperatures are pretty mild and it doesn't freeze very often, though it can get a bit windy sometimes. Summers in this part of the world are hot, but can also be mighty humid, and you'll need to be prepared to get a bit wet. Thunderstorms are pretty much a daily occurrence, and over 40% of the annual rainfall happens in the summer months. If you like it a bit drier, spring or fall are the most ideal seasons for visiting.

Natural features

There are no barriers to relaxation on this island

Isle of Palms is a barrier island on the coast of South Carolina. It's got the Intracoastal Waterway separating it from the mainland on one side, and the Atlantic Ocean stretching away into infinity on the other. The terrain round here is all about sandy beaches and salt marshes, and sunrises round here are the stuff of legend. And the coastal situation and hospitable habitats draw in more than just the travelers. The island might be a favorite spot with affluent vacation home owners, but the real celebrity residents are the nesting sea turtles.
