Harbor Island, is a 1400-acre barrier island on the Atlantic coast, with 2.5 miles of natural, white sand beach, located just 14 miles east of Beaufort, South Carolina. A peaceful, gated community, Harbor Island features a large variety of vacation homes, condominiums, and villas to accommodate couples, families or large groups. While Harbor Island is a prime spot for nature lovers, the pristine beach, three outdoor swimming pools, tennis courts, basketball and volleyball courts offer opportunities for traditional activities.
Exploring this little piece of paradise you will find leisurely walks provide a remarkable co-existence with nature where pelicans, egrets, herons, terns and horseshoe crabs are the largest crowd found on the beach. Loggerhead turtles return to their birthplace in the spring to lay their eggs and throughout the summer and early fall, their offspring hatch and make their way to the ocean. Shrimp boats hug the coastline with dolphins at play greeting passersby. In nearby rookeries the seasonal birds nest in the wax myrtles where onlookers can observe remarkable hatchings.
Nearby restaurants prepare local seafood fresh from the boats you see in Saint Helena Sound off our beach. Several local shops provide basic food items, rent kayaks, sell pizza and souvenirs. Harbor Island is located midway between the historic cities of Charleston and Savannah. We are 25 miles east of the picturesque coastal town of Beaufort.
