Totally Active Beaches

by Sarah Tuff


The Sport: Tennis

The Arena: Kiawah Island, South Carolina

Your Adventure: Thwock. Scuffle. Thwock. Perhaps the only thing more hypnotic than the crash of waves is the sound of a tennis match—particularly when you're crushing your opponent near the beach. Some 30 minutes from Charleston, South Carolina, Kiawah Island Golf Resort serves up 23 clay and five hard courts at two separate clubs, surrounded by palm trees, Spanish moss, and, oh, yeah, water. It's a tennis player's paradise (particularly if that tennis player would rather hit the salt water postmatch). Even the rusty rave about Kiawah, thanks to Hall of Fame tennis pro Roy Barth and a practice court with machines that not only toss tennis balls but pick them up afterwards (now that's luxury). Singles and doubles alike score with round-robins Monday through Friday, mini-camps on weekends, and drill sessions every day of the week. For ace accommodations, choose a one-bedroom courtside villa with cathedral ceilings, fronting some ten miles of seafront sand. Now that's love—all.
