Sea Islands South Carolina

Vast, sandy beaches, dramatic tidal changes and a rich history await you on the Sea Islands of South Carolina! This collection of peaceful islands, located a short drive from Beaufort, are full of beauty and culture, making it an ideal beach getaway for families, couples, friends and groups. Experience the Sea Islands region from one of our lovely, spacious handpicked homes and discover why it has become a tradition for visitors for decades.

As barrier islands, our retreats on Fripp, Harbor, Dataw and St. Helena offer a truly unique beach experience. Walk the entire length of the beach on one side and kayak, SUP board or canoe through marshes on the other. Climb to the top of the lighthouse on Hunting Island then hike through the state park to see the beautiful beach landscape, or visit nearby Parris Island and explore the island's military history at the Parris Island Museum. Visit a local fishery and purchase fresh shrimp and other seafood, moments after it unloads from the boats and taste truly fresh seafood. A day trip to historic and charming Beaufort is a must when in the area. Admire the gorgeous old Southern homes from a horse drawn carriage then stroll through the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park.
 
These Sea Islands are located a short half hour from Beaufort, 90 minutes from Savannah, GA and just over 2 hours from Charleston, SC. The entire area is full of marshes, streams, inlets and, of course, ocean. It’s no wonder that this gorgeous region has served as a backdrop for several classic American movies, including The Big Chill, Prince of Tides and Forrest Gump.
 
Come relax on the porch, play on the beach and swim in the surf as you create memories to last the year on the Sea Islands of South Carolina.
