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. The facility will have two rooms, one for fitness equipment and the other for classes.

The modular unit is currently awaiting modifications to Berkeley Electric Cooperative’s (BEC) main power line to the site, which did not pass the Town of Kiawah Island’s inspection. Work is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 19 and Monday, Jan. 22.  

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

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).

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.
