Commercial Access

Our commercial customers are an important part of what makes Kiawah Island special. Service providers, including general and subcontractors, may purchase annual decals for company-registered vehicles, including those registered to principals of the company who use them for company-related duties. Day passes are also available and some may have associated costs.
