A Focus on Personal Wellness

The Sandcastle is currently closed for renovations. The updated facility will have 25% more fitness space, and is slated for substantial completion by July 3, 2018.

Temporary Fitness Options

Thanks to a friendly lease agreement with Kiawah Partners, a temporary fitness center will be located at 2 Beachwalker Drive, next the Kiawah General Store. KICA is currently seeking approval from the Town of Kiawah Island for the building, and as soon as a permit is issued, delivery will be scheduled. The facility will have two rooms, one for fitness equipment and the other for classes.

In the meantime, there are several fitness options available to members:

Outdoor Classes: Some regularly scheduled classes will be held outdoors at Night Heron Park and Cinder Creek, and will be taught by KICA instructors.

Studio 33 (Freshfields): KICA has negotiated a reduced drop-in rate of $10 for classes at Studio 33. This new group fitness studio offers a variety of classes including yoga, Pilates, Barre and more. Owners Liz and Frank Silva opened the studio in June. Their goal is to create a self-sustainable community around health and wellness. To sign up, either visit the studio or register online.

To register online:

  1. Visit
  2. Select a class you would like to take.
  3. Create your account and select the drop-in rate.
  4. At checkout, enter the promo code “kica” for a $10 drop-in (KICA will confirm that you are indeed a KICA member and eligible for the discount).

Kiawah Island Golf Resort: The Kiawah Island Golf Resort is offering temporary access to fitness equipment (not classes) through Nov. 30, 2017.

  • $50 per family.
  • Access to KIGR fitness equipment center.
  • Facility is currently located at Straw Market through Wednesday, Nov. 1, moving to Night Heron Park Nature Center on Saturday, Nov. 4 (closed for two days for move).
  • Fitness equipment center hours are 6 a.m. – 11 p.m., at both locations.

KICA members interested in this option may get a code/pass from the resort’s Night Heron Park Nature Center, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

19 Miles of Leisure Trails and 10 Miles of Beach: Island owners and guests routinely say the best part of their experience is walking, running or biking the leisure trails and beach. If it’s been a while since you’ve availed yourself of Kiawah’s natural splendor, perhaps this is a great time to rediscover these valuable community assets.
