This island is named after the Native American Kiawah tribe who hunted and fished here for hundreds of years before the arrival of the first Europeans. The island's (84mi²/220km²) scenery is stunning, ranging from maritime forests and pristine marshes, without forgetting the 10mi/16km-long paradisiacal sandy beach, ideal to relax and chill. There is no lack of hotel accommodation, including the luxurious waterfront "Sanctuary" resort hotel.
