Want to get out of town this summer, but don’t want to travel too far? We’ve found what could be the perfect coastal escape on the southern end of Johns Island.

The Dunlin (6000 Kiawah River Dr., Johns Island) will open Thursday, Aug. 1. It sits on the Kiawah River, ~ 40 minutes outside Charleston near Kiawah and Seabrook Islands.

Fun fact: The resort is named after a local shorebird.

The 2,000-acre property has two restaurants offering southern and Lowcountry menu items like oyster roasts, whole hog BBQs, and Lowcountry boils. The resort has 20+ miles of nature trails and a spa to explore. Check out some of the other adventures offered:
