Sea Islands

Vast, sandy beaches, dramatic tidal changes, and rich history await on the Sea Islands of South Carolina.

This collection of peaceful islands, located a short drive from historic Beaufort, are full of beauty and culture, an ideal beach getaway for visitors of all ages. Our Sea Islands rentals will be the perfect base as you explore the beaches, kayak the marshes, and treat yourself to delectable Southern fare. As barrier islands, Fripp, Harbor, Dataw, and St. Helena offer a unique beach experience. Walk the entire length of the beach on one side, and canoe through marshes on the other.
