Review

This spot is named for its proximity to Cloudbreak Condos on Folly Beach. Clouds is known for having the occasional huge swell, and when this happens you do not want to miss it. It is important to check surf reports for this area to make sure you’re not missing out on a great time. Much like the rest of Folly beach, it tends to get a little crowded on a day with excellent surf conditions, and things like parking can turn into an issue. Besides crowd control, this is a great spot to catch some waves. Clouds is close to all of the restaurants on Folly, as well as the county park. The great thing about Folly Beach is the amount of surf spots available within a 5 mile distance. If the conditions are not up to your standards at one location, just walk down the street and give that section of beach a try. This is due to the piers, jetties, and direction of the swell on any given day.
