Directions to Property
To reach the entrance of Botany Bay Plantation WMA, travel down SC Highway 174 toward Edisto Beach and turn left onto Botany Bay Road, which is about 8.5 miles south of the McKinley Washington Bridge. Follow this dirt road two miles to near where it dead-ends. Turn left at the gate into the property. The kiosk at the main gate contains maps and other important information. The designated driving tour provides excellent wildlife viewing opportunities for mobility impaired visitors. Please note that due to the fragile nature of the road system through the property, only 15 passenger vans and smaller are allowed to tour the property. Also note that NO horses or dogs are allowed on the beach or the causeway to the beach.
