This is Wild Dunes Resort on Isle of Palms, South Carolina, a place you can make all your own. Whether it’s choosing from a variety of accommodations including the Four Diamond rated Boardwalk Inn, The Village, family-friendly vacation rentals, condominiums and cottages, or deciding whether to fill your days with award-winning golf, tennis, a visit to historic downtown Charleston or one of dozens of other activities, here you’ll find yourself in a better place.
There’s a reason guests keep coming back to Wild Dunes Resort. An easy going, relaxed atmosphere. A place where you can feel at peace. A place to savor the moment and memories. A better place. It doesn’t hurt that Wild Dunes Resort is just thirty minutes away from historic Charleston, South Carolina, either. Charleston has been named among Conde Nast’s Best Travel Destinations in the U.S. and one of the Coolest Small Cities in America by GQ. Charleston’s restaurants are world-famous. Festivals and events fill the streets nearly every weekend. Famous architecture. Charming shops. Art, history and character everywhere.
Whether coming for a family vacation or weekend getaway, Wild Dunes Resort and Charleston are easy to get to and it’s even easier to stay awhile. Some even end up staying a lifetime.
Tennis is not just an option at Wild Dunes Resort; it’s a passion. In fact, Tennis Magazine ranked us a U.S. Top 10 Tennis Resort – nine years in a row.
We offer 17 Har-Tru courts – including a stadium court – and light five of them for night play. As a guest, you’ll enjoy daily complimentary court time, as well as access to our full-service Pro Shop and top-ranked instruction with professional instructors. Our tennis activities range from programs for all levels of play to clinics and drills.
We think it’s only appropriate that Wild Dunes Resort is right next to Charleston, South Carolina, which was named America’s Best Tennis Town by the U.S. Tennis Association.
