Inside the gates of Wild Dunes, the roads are under the jurisdiction of the Isle of Palms Police Department and Wild Dunes Security. Your LSV will be delivered to your property with a Wild Dunes entry pass to easily enter the community. The LSV will also have a parking pass valid for you rental period. Please keep these passes displayed at all times. Once outside the Wild Dunes gates, feel free to move about Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island via the Breach Inlet Bridge.

Our LSVs are able to move around the islands just like a car and can be driven after dark. Please follow all laws of the road. You may see golf carts driving on a dirt path on the side of the road. Those golf carts are limited on which streets they may travel. Our LSVs are permitted on all the island roads. They may not be driven or transported over the Isle of Palm Connector Bridge or Ben Sawyer Bridge.

LSVs are permitted to drive on any road that posts a speed limit up to 35 MPH. Since LSV’s are only permitted to drive at a 25 MPH maximum, many LSV drivers pull over to let cars pass, as a curtesy, when driving on a 30-35 MPH road.

Within Wild Dunes Community, rental LSVs must park in areas designated as rental parking. The LSV must have a parking pass displayed at all times. Outside the gates, there is designated golf cart parking in many popular places on the island. An LSV can park in any legal parking spot or designated golf cart parking.
