Daufuski Island

At the top of everyone's list is the fact that Daufuskie is an island accessed only by boat. Whether it's a comfortable passenger ferry from Hilton Head, bucking the currents in a kayak, or arriving on your own craft and tying up in the marina at red marker 36, arrival on Daufuskie's shell-strewn shores takes a degree of effort that is well-rewarded.

Daufuskie is a friendly spot - there's a strong sense of community, and everyone pitches in for the good of the Island, whether it's the school fundraiser, a wedding, or the annual all-island golf tournament held on the public beach. Many of the local residents are skilled artisans and craftspeople who appreciate the support and enthusiasm of neighbors. And, everyone here - visitor, student, paramedic, homeowner, worker - relies on the ferry system, promoting a certain relaxed ambience. Friendships are born on the crossing, deals consummated, romances sparked. And there's always the option of sitting topside, taking in the salty air. As an old-timer put it "It's easier to have an emergency here than in a big city Golf - If golf is your game, Daufuskie beckons with three championship courses designed by prominent designers Rees Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morish.

Tennis Tennis buffs can stir up a racket on one of the island's many tennis courts, many lighted for night play Family Activity Center - Daufuskie is a paradise for families with children. Not only are there heated oceanfront swimming pools, there's a teen pool, children's wading pool and even a whirlpool. Also, you'll find special planned programs where kids can discover the difference between a heron and an egret while you pursue your own discoveries.

If you wish to get away from it all to a place where even automobiles can't travel but still have all the creature comforts of a country club environment, then Daufuskie Island may be for you! Because of its remote location between Hilton Head Island and the mainland, this small barrier island of approximately 5000 acres has been slow to develop.

Sea Pines Plantation

As pointed out earlier. Sea Pines was the original planned development on the island, and became the model for those which followed. The "Grandfather" off Island-Plantations was founded in 1956 by Charles Fraser. For a number of years Sea Pines and Hilton Head were synonymous. For most the candy striped lighthouse in Harbour Town has come to symbolize the Island and its sensitive mix of residential and visitor oriented developments and recreational facilities blended anonymously into their natural surroundings. Sea Pines is home to both the MCI Heritage Classic, a popular tournament on the PGA tour, and the Family Circle Tennis Tournament. With over 5,000 acres it is the largest of the Island's plantations. Almost 1300 of these acres are devoted to parks, forest preserves, lagoons and marshlands!

Shipyard Plantation

Fully half of this plantation is devoted to multifamily developments, and therefore, most of the people you run into are probably visitors in the pursuit of a good time. This is one of the more "active" plantations for that reason. Of the three 9 hole golf courses, Clipper and Galleon have hosted the PGA Tour three times! The Shipyard Racquet Club has been called "possibly the most beautiful tennis complex anywhere in the United States" and is rated in the top 50 tennis resorts in the country by Tennis Magazine. There is a "quieter" side of single family homes in Shipyard, but for the most part it is fast-paced and fun.

Spanish Wells Plantation

When the Spaniards explored this part of the coast they landed on this area of the Island to get fresh water - hence the name Spanish Wells. Because of its remote location "off the beaten path" of Highway 278 Spanish Wells has evolved into the most serene and quiet of all the plantations. Located on a point of land between Calibogue Sound and Broad Creek, it has its own nine hole golf course and club. It is completely private.

Wexford Plantation

Possibly the most exclusive community on Hilton Head, Wexford is known for its stately homes and the man-made harbour and canal system which allows many property owners to moor their boats at: their back doors! Boaters can enter Broad Creek through a lock system which protects the harbour from tidal fluctuations. Community life is centered around the Wexford Club which provides the residents with a private golf course, tennis and croquet clubs, and of course the harbour!

Windmill Harbour

Located on Jenkins Island, which is just across a short causeway from the northernmost end of Hilton Head Island, Windmill Harbour is the place for anyone who appreciates the boating life. This private plantation is centered around the harbour, or more specifically, the South Carolina Yacht Club, which sits on a small peninsula in the middle of the harbour.

The marina consists of 260 slips, 27 of which are attached to homesites and allow owners to moor at their back doors! There is a lock system which maintains harbour depth and protects boats from wakes, currents, and silting. Boaters can come and go at any tide directly into the Intracoastal Waterway. There is a marina store with food, supplies, and a fueling station. While boaters are out the rest of the family can enjoy harbour front recreation with pool, hot tubs, sauna, and the racquet club!
