Magic Island

Magic Island provides the city of Charleston with a unique opportunity to get out and experience the great outdoors while still being within the city limits. Although the “island” is actually connected to the mainland just off the Kanawha River, the sandy area is unofficially known as Rockaway Beach. The island gained its name due to the rise and fall of the river level in the Kanawha, which caused the island to slip underwater, as if by "magic".

The island actually serves as a park for the city and with sand volleyball courts, a walking track, and numerous picnic locations, the whole family can come and enjoy a day out on the island. Magic Island also hosts Family Movie Night throughout the summer months. Check out local listings in your paper to see what movies and when show times are happening.

The Wingate by Wyndham sits just 10 minutes away from all the fun at Magic Island. If you are in the Charleston area on business or vacation it is a great place for you and your family to check out. Go running or walking with those you care about, or take the family to see a movie, there are numerous options at Magic Island. Then when you come back, our Wingate can provide all that you need to relax and enjoy your time with us. The front desk will be happy to answer any questions you may have during your time with us, and we hope to see you and your family soon!
