Since 1997, the Kiawah Conservancy’s mission has been “to preserve and enhance Kiawah Island’s unique balance of nature and development.” To continue to grow support for its conservation mission, the Conservancy would like you to experience Kiawah’s wonders first hand!
Our Naturally Kiawah Pathways self-guided tours (via the TravelStorysGPS App), allow you to learn something about our Island that even long-term visitors and residents may not know. The tours also provide suggestions on how each of us can help ensure we preserve the legacy of Kiawah’s nature and beauty for future generations. Combined together, the tours will take you from the far eastern sections of the Island to Freshfields Village in the west and from the beach to the Kiawah River. Some of the tours are best taken on your bike, while others are designed to be walked. Each tour can be taken in its entirety or in sections. Biking or walking distances are shown with each tour.
To take a tour, download the free TravelStorysGPS App from Google Play or the App Store and select the Naturally Kiawah Pathways tour that most interests you . For each tour, there are approximately 10 points of interest. When using the TravelStorysGPS App, GPS-activated audio narration about each location will begin as you approach the mapped point on your selected tour. Each location also includes a series of photographs, many provided courtesy of the Kiawah Island Photography Club.
We encourage you to sample one or more of the tours and recommend them to your family and friends. This is a wonderful resource to learn more about Kiawah Island - perhaps on one of the many beautiful days that grace our shores! We also ask you to send us your experiences, photographs, and stories about a site that you believe others might enjoy, so that they might be included in a future version of a tour.
From your friends and neighbors at the Kiawah Conservancy, please enjoy touring Kiawah Island!
