We took the Bulls Island Ferry from Awendaw to Bulls Island for a little adventure. Bulls Island sits in the middle of the 66,000-acre Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. The ferry dropped us off on the protected leeward side of the island. To get to the beach, we trekked a very long mile directly through the island's center. We were rewarded with a near-deserted stretch of coastline. In the mid-summer heat, it was probably a little too aggressive for a relaxing beach day with the kids but we still had a great time!
