The Beaufort Lowcountry is made up of 64 main Sea and Barrier Islands, as well as hundreds of smaller islands. Fripp, Harbor and Dataw are three of these smaller islands. A few of their neighbors are the islands of Polawana, Distant and Bermuda Bluff. These communities are all connected by charming bridges and waterways, which wind their way among the canals and wetlands. A traditional southern charisma is apparent in both the people and the environment of the Lowcountry, a quality that draws visitors and part-time residents back into its calm embrace time and again, providing a chance for people of all walks and stages of life to slow down, relax and take in the natural beauty of South Carolina. Distant Island is surrounded by deep water and is filled in with native oak trees and lush wetland vegetation. It is hard to find a residence on this island without a spectacular view. Private boat docks and storage, fishing piers, miles of beach and Intracoastal Waterway access, golf courses, tennis courts and delightful walking paths which connect homes to neighborhood parks. Polawana Island features the same untouched beauty of the other islands but with an added quality of peace that makes for a hauntingly calm atmosphere which residents and visitors prize like a deep secret. This 200-acre escape has only 40 lots available. Nearby Bermuda Bluff Island lies quietly along the Beaufort River. 150 acres of the familiar Lowcountry vegetation and character offers a community pool, a lookout tower, tennis courts and a boat dock. Only a few minutes from downtown Beaufort, one could spend hours under a waterside oak tree, do some shopping and take in a show all in one day. History, charm, hospitality and natural beauty occur over and over in the Lowcountry setting. Each island has a unique touch that stays with you when you leave and calls to you when you have to be away. Find out which island suits you best and become one of the fortunate people who call these gorgeous off-coast hideaways home.
