Do you really need to rent a golf cart for your stay on the island? The island is small, the rental property comes with bikes, or maybe you’re staying close to the beach and don’t think you’ll need a golf cart to go anywhere. Regardless, you’re wondering if the added expense of renting a cart for the week is really worth it.
Yes. It is definitely worth it. There is not a downtown area on Daufuskie. Everything over here is spread out. If you want to see the galleries, eateries and history Daufuskie has to offer, you’ll need a golf cart.
Not only that, but about half of the island is made up of dirt roads. With too much rain or not enough rain, these roads are impossible to bike. Take a look at our bike guide here for more information!
And honestly, driving around the island on a golf cart exploring the dirt roads and “out of country feel” will be one of the best parts of your vacation on the island.
We recommend booking a cart as soon as you book your rental. Overnight carts tend to book up quickly, especially around the holidays or summer months. Often cart companies offer discounted rates on weekly and nightly rentals. Give us a call to check availability and book your overnight cart rental!
