Talk about the Dog Days of Summer. Average temperatures hit the high 80s in August, so have a plan for cooling off. 

Make a Splash

Of course, the best way to cool off is to dive right into a body of water. The Atlantic ocean is just steps from your door when booking one of our oceanfront properties. Splash into the waves or dip your toes in the foam. Take a swim in the community pool located within your Kiawah Island property neighborhood - Port OCall, Seagrove Villas, Shipwatch Villas, Ocean Point, and the Yacht Harbor area. Wild Dunes Resort and Seabrook Island properties also have community pools. 

Take the Plunge

Nothing cools a person more quickly than a jump into the ocean. Certified scuba divers can book a charter with Carolina Dive Locker in Mount Pleasant. Divers never know what they’ll see on the artificial reefs, wrecks and ledges where the 28-foot dive boat takes charters. Those wanting to learn to scuba can take lessons to get certified. Carolina Dive Locker offers a Try Diving Class to see if it’s for you.

Cheers to Happy Hour

Sip a frozen concoction like a strawberry daiquiri or Lowcountry Lemonade at Coconut Joes rooftop bar to enjoy the ocean breeze. The Windjammer also serves refreshing cocktails on the beach, as does Binkys Seaside Oyster & Liquor Bar, where you can cool off with a botanical spritzer made with infused vodka, soda water, and your favorite fruit. Sounds refreshing, right? Or go to The Co-op for a frose, also known as frozen wine. 

Drink the Sunshine

Of course, nonalcoholic drinks are also chilling. Cafe Paname at Isle of Palms serves iced coffee drinks as a perfect way to wake up. Luke n Ollies Pizzeria blends mango, blue lemonade, strawberry, and pina colada smoothies, and recently brought back their luscious Pineapple Dole Whip. Talk about refreshing!

So whats your favorite way to cool off during your beach vacation?
