Kiawah is an island off South Carolina, 25 miles southwest of Charleston. It is basically a private beach and golf resort.
The exclusive little island is only 10 miles wide.
There are many private residences on the island, including homes owned by former Republican Governor Nikki Haley, Olympic gold medalist basketball player Tara Lipinski and NBA basketball player Ray Allen.
The Bidens are no strangers to Kiawah.
They had previously visited the island in 2009, 2013, 2014, and 2015 when Biden was vice president.
Their last visit was in 2015, shortly after President Bo’s son died of brain cancer.
