Kiawah Island Litter Sweep Yields Mostly Cigarette Butts

By Kurt Steelman for The Island Connection

On Saturday, May 21, volunteers gathered at Mingo Point to conduct a litter sweep on Kiawah Island. This sweep was the fifth in a new effort by the Kiawah Conservancy to help maintain clean and safe habitats for wildlife in and around Kiawah. The Conservancy’s litter sweeps are held on the third Saturday of every month from 9-11 a.m.

They target high traffic areas like the Kiawah Island Parkway, Beachwalker Park, The Sanctuary, and The Sandcastle. The volunteers were split into four small groups and focused their efforts on the Kiawah Island Parkway between Mingo Point and Freshfields Village. The group of seven collected 1,101 pieces of litter. Since the litter sweeps’ inception in January, volunteers have collected and logged more than 6,800 pieces of litter.

The most abundant litter items are cigarette butts with 323 collected and 2,071 collected over all five sweeps. The high quantity of litter speaks to a larger littering problem than the Conservancy was anticipating. The South Carolina Aquarium is the Conservancy’s partner in this ecosystem clean up effort. Aquarium representatives have helped run each sweep and provided bags, extended grabbers, and visibility vests for volunteers working close to the roads. The Aquarium also helps run litter sweeps in other areas around Charleston such as Folly Beach and the Isle of Palms. At each location, the different types of litter are logged and uploaded to the South Carolina Aquarium’s Citizen Science App (and recorded on anecdata. com) to inform data driven solutions to large-scale pollution. The Kiawah Conservancy is fortunate to have the South Carolina Aquarium as our partner in this effort.

The partnership allows us to keep Kiawah clean and support research efforts at the same time. However, the significance of the partnership can still be enhanced by increased volunteer activity. Over the past five litter sweeps, there has been an average of seven volunteers. These small volunteer groups have proven tenacious and efficient, but they are still limited to certain areas due to their overall low numbers. With more volunteers, the Conservancy and Aquarium would be far more successful in improving the quality of the ecosystems in and around Kiawah Island.

Therefore, the Kiawah Conservancy urges people to come out to the next litter sweep on June 18 and help keep Kiawah clean. The sweep will begin at 9 a.m. at Mingo Point and participants will be eligible for a raffle prize when the sweep ends.

Jason Stemple

Follow winding, oak-shaded roads 25 miles southwest of downtown Charleston's cobblestone streets and celebrated restaurant scene, and you'll find yourself on Kiawah Island. Carved by the Kiawah River on one side and fronting the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the barrier island is a true escape. Here, nature reigns supreme: ten miles of beaches roll out along the Atlantic; cicadas form their own sort of soundtrack; and lights-out is often determined by the sea turtles' nesting season. Even so, there's plenty to do for travelers who like their time in nature punctuated with good food, luxurious creature comforts, and a frozen drink in hand. Here are seven things to do in Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

Stay Like a Local

For access to all of Kiawah's amenities, from bike rentals to pools, you'll have to stay on the island. For an experience that's luxurious but unpretentious, book a room at The Sanctuary, an oceanfront hotel known for its five-star service and elevated onsite dining. For families who want a little room to spread out (or a kitchen), villa and home rentals are a smart choice; reserve through the resort directly, or book through a site like VRBO or Airbnb.

Spend a Day on the Sand

On the west end of the island, Beachwalker Park is Kiawah's only public beach access feels like a hidden gem, thanks to its wide, unspoiled expanses of sand. It offers the best of both worlds too: in addition to the ocean frontage, you can also score views of the Kiawah River here.

Hit the Links

Five state-of-the-art golf courses are open to the public. For avid fans of the sport, the Ocean Course alone makes Kiawah worth the trip. Host to two PGA Championships, the 18-hole course is not for the faint of heart. Raised above the dunes to capitalize on the expansive shore views, golfers are also subjected to ocean breezes (which don't exactly make for an easy or predictable trip around the green). Try Cougar Point for marsh views and a slightly less technical experience.

The naturalists here will school you in many of the species who call the island home, from bobcats and white-tailed deer to loggerhead sea turtles and American alligators. Sign up for a like "Back Island Birding", "Marsh Kayaking," or "Ocean Seining and Beach Combing," or ask for their recommendations for the best nature-spotting places in the area.

Built around a lush lawn, has plenty of restaurants and shops to explore, plus a boutique stay, the Andell Inn. Pick up a beach read at Indigo Books; snag treats for your four-legged friends at Dolitte's; and gear up for island adventures SeaCoast Sports and Outfitters. Start the morning with coffee and a breakfast sandwich from Java Java; settle in for grilled cheese and a milkshake at retro Vincent's Drugstore & Soda Fountain; or cap off the day with house-made frosé from newly opened The Co-Op. Check their calendar for seasonal events, like summertime's "Music on the Green" concert series and farmer's market.

Make the short drive to neighboring Seabrook Island for a taste of the area's salty maritime culture. Snag a umbrella-shaded table on the upper deck at for fresh catch, a cold beer, and riverfront views of the boats coming and going from the marina.

A new oceanfront condominium development on Kiawah Island recently sold out months ahead of schedule because of high demand.

Colorado-based developer East West Partners, which has an office in Charleston, said all 78 units in six buildings overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in The Cape on Kiawah fetched more than $284 million, an average price of $3.64 million each.

The 14-acre development, expected to be completed in 2023, extends across 1,000 feet of beachfront property where the Kiawah River meets the ocean in the West Beach community on the upscale resort island south of Charleston.

The condominiums are the first whole ownership luxury residences on the island in 40 years, according to the developer.

“East West Partners is devoted to creating homeowner experiences that combine a desirable location, luxury amenities, strong community aspect, turnkey living, sustainably-driven design and connection to nature,” said Miller Harper, managing partner of East West Partners’ Charleston developments.

“The sales success has been incredible, and we see long-term interest continuing strong, namely with luxury living in the Lowcountry area in such high demand,” he said.

East West launched Phase I, offering 40 units, in June 2021. After stronger-than-expected demand, the developer accelerated the project for the second phase with an additional 38 residences.

East West Hospitality will be onsite to offer owners maintenance and concierge services during the move-in period. Owners also will have access to The Cape Club, a new oceanfront beach club. It will be operated by the Kiawah Island Club and feature an infinity pool, sun deck, al fresco food and beverages at the property’s outdoor bar and grill, fitness center and array of watersports.

The Cape Club will also be home to Kiawah Island Club owned-and-operated guest cottages available for rent by members and their guests.

Owners at The Cape will enjoy a private rooftop deck, sand rooms with owner storage, grand lawn for games and gathering, outdoor showers, outdoor pet washing stations, bike racks, electric vehicle charging stations, a dune garden and oceanfront boardwalks.

Homebuyers also can purchase a membership to the exclusive Kiawah Island Club, a private membership club on the island that offers access to amenities such as two championship golf courses and luxurious clubhouses, six pools, The Beach Club, Marsh House, a 9,000-square-foot sports pavilion with tennis, squash and pickleball courts, weight training center, Olympic pool, spa and sporting club for shooting clays and skeet.

Residences at The Cape on Kiawah in Charleston County will only be available for long-term rental of 45 days and over.

As much as travel offers a chance to disconnect — for adults, it’s a respite from the grind of work, and for kids, it can be a break from sitting in a classroom — vacations are also an opportunity to use our brains in new ways. Especially for little ones who are like sponges, there’s so much to be gained from learning new skills or indulging novel interests in an unfamiliar setting.

Some hotels and resorts, ranging from tropical getaways to art-filled cities, around the globe have created innovative, kid-focused programming that’s culturally immersive or offers deep engagement with the environment.

For more TPG news delivered each morning to your inbox, sign up for our daily newsletter.

These are not your standard kids clubs, or even just exemplary ones; they’re full-on next level. From sessions on sustainability and the complex workings of unique ecosystems to lively history and language lessons, these eight family hotels can captivate almost any young mind — even the ones who are stoked that school is out for summer.

In This Post

Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort, Fiji

With the Bula Club’s diverse offerings, children visiting the Jean-Michel Cousteau Resort will quickly realize Fiji is quite different from other tropical islands thanks to activities including lessons on the Fijian language, making spears and planting traditional crops. Many activities also revolve around Fiji’s deep-rooted maritime cultural heritage. The School Under the Sea is geared toward ages 6 to 12 and includes sessions throughout the day peppered into family snorkeling trips, such as reef ecosystem walks and preservation talks, coral and mangrove planting, reef search and rescue mapping and one called “A Drop in the Ocean,” which involves learning eco-friendly practices for water conservation.

There are presentations by marine biologists and a graduation night at the end of the week. For shorter trips, the on-site marine biologist, Johnny Singh, offers Friday afternoon “Connect with Kids” programs where children participate firsthand in the curriculum at a local elementary school, practicing language games, playing sports and trying Fijian cuisine alongside a local buddy of their own age.

Room rates are $960 per night.

Desa Potato Head, Bali, Indonesia

Created and led by Balinese environmental champion Dewa Legawa, the Sweet Potato Kids workshop each Sunday afternoon at Desa Potato Head is an extension of the “good times, do good” ethos at this creative village that comprises two distinctive design hotels. Each week highlights a unique activity that relates to traditions of the island as well as a regenerative attitude that might inspire future change-makers. Kids construct kites — considered by some to be sacred religious vessels for sending messages or gratitude to the Hindu gods — from bamboo and paper, then fly them as locals do.

Workshops tap into creativity by using natural materials: think drawing with seeds, painting with sustainable plant-based pigments and making small outrigger boats out of coconut shells to sail in the pool. In addition, kids can create beaded bracelets with the leftover recycled plastic material Potato Head uses to make chairs and other guest amenities, learning how not to waste a single item.

Rates for Potato Head Studios start at $182 per night (including taxes and breakfast); Potato Head Suites start at $290 per night (including taxes and breakfast).

Hotel Eden, Rome

Rome’s long history comes to life via the elegant Hotel Eden’s captivating kids programming, in partnership with Imago Artis, a luxury tour operator. There are ways for every small person to connect with the Eternal City’s various eras. The Little Gladiator Experience ($210 for one child, $316 for two), for example, takes children ages 7 and older back in time at an ancient arena that resembles the Colosseum, where they learn gladiatura, or the life of the gladiator, by trying on armor, checking out ancient weapons and learning Roman fighting skills, history and the secrets of the games.

Alternately, with Little Artist ($263 for one child, $316 for two), youngsters can visit an artist’s studio and learn from a Roman maestro about sculpture, painting, pottery or mosaic, spending the afternoon making a memento either in the studio or outdoors in one of the city’s leafy parks. Older teens might focus on recreating a masterpiece of Bernini or Michelangelo.

Hotel rates start at $827 per night.

Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Vietnam

The team at Six Senses Ninh Van Bay was busy during the pandemic dreaming up not only an all-new kids club, Vooc Village, which boasts toys, play equipment and decor made only of natural materials (think a ball pit with fabric instead of balls) as well as an immersive Climate Warrior program that has now rolled out across the brand.

From cultivating coral fragments that will help regrow nearby reefs and planting a tree at the resort’s fruit farm to games and experiments in the Earth Lab and baking plant-based meals in a solar cooker, visiting children should find plenty to keep them occupied. Beyond giving the next generation active ways to think about climate change, there are fascinating cultural options for little ones, too, including making bamboo wind chimes and herbal compresses, learning about Vietnamese music, playing traditional games and crafting colorful paper lanterns.

Rates currently start at $896 per night.

Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Hawaii

Between its Kumu Kai Marine Center and the aquarium-like King’s Pond, which is staffed by marine biologists, and the Kaupulehu Cultural Center, Four Seasons Hualalai on the Island of Hawaii has a full array of ways for kids to gain a deeper understanding of Hawaii’s unique ecology and cultural legacy.

At the cultural center, children are exposed to unique skills such as feather tying to create artificial flowers, Hawaiian quilting of applique pot holders and pandanus leaf weaving. There are all-ages storytelling sessions that share Hawaiian oral history, oli chants and how ancient Hawaiians used indigenous plants. At King’s Pond, even the littlest travelers can participate (accompanied by an adult) in feeding fish as well as the resident spotted eagle ray, and even feeling creatures in the Touch Tank.

There are also paid excursions, such as a tidepool walk and a fishing “derby” that aims to rid the local fish ponds of invasive species. Kids 12 and older can even shadow a marine life specialist, learning how to collect and record data.

Room rates currently start at $1,100 per night.

Six Senses Douro Valley, Portugal

The hands-on Grow With Six Senses kids offerings at the bucolic Six Senses Douro Valley in Portugal’s wine country now include the Climate Warriors program, including education about climate change, various Earth Lab experiments and learning about solutions like composting and upcycling.

In learning the importance of endemic flowers and pollination, kids make and throw seed bombs of clay, soil and seeds, and play recycling games that clarify confusing practices like what to do with batteries. There are lessons on composting and the science of organic gardening, too. This programming is complimentary for guests staying three nights or more.

Room rates start at $421 per night.

Amanyara, Turks and Caicos

The spectacular natural beauty that makes Turks and Caicos such an appealing destination for adults holds wondrous lessons for kids, too. In partnership with Miami’s Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, Amanyara offers a lineup of SEEK — Science Explorers and Environmental Keepers — camps priced at $95 per child per day. The camp for ages 5-14 is led by Frost-affiliated educators and geared toward cultivating a generation of conservationists.

The “Coastal Conservation” program includes kayaking or hiking through mangroves, building a coastline model and inspecting sand and plants under a microscope. The “Reef Rescue” program takes kids snorkeling through Northwest Point National Park’s diverse coral formations where they might spot turtles, rays and fish. They can take what they learn to develop their own “Save the Reef” campaign. The third camp theme is “Sun, Moon and Stars,” in which tykes go stargazing, map out constellations and learn about spectroscopy as well as make moon models and learn how to use light to search for life on other planets. Bespoke private camps are also available.

Rates currently start at $3,000 per night.

The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, South Carolina

The Junior Naturalists program at Kiawah Island Golf Resort in the South Carolina Lowcountry celebrates the very unique environmental features surrounding the hotel, which include salt marshes, tidal creeks, maritime forests, brackish ponds, dunes and the Atlantic Ocean. Adult naturalists guide four different classes ($30 per child per class), which mix hands-on activities with in-the-field exploration outside.

Parents who are intrigued can participate in their own sessions including birding, wildlife photography and so-called “gator walks.” Kids observe and learn why alligators bask in the sun and learn to identify different sea turtle species nesting on the island’s beaches in the herpetology session. The marsh discovery activity has them using dip nets to find grass shrimp, sponges and sea squirts in creek beds while understanding the roles they play in the ecosystem. Other activities where kids learn about bird and insect species or hike through the surrounding forest are also ways to keep your kids active during a stay here.

Room rates start at $640 per night.
