Daufuskie Island
A Little Slice Of Heaven

Just across Hilton Head Island is a little gem called Daufuskie Island.

Known for its layback lifestyle, amazing cuisine and world-class lodging, this secluded getaway is a great place to enjoy either a day trip from Hilton Head’s active tourism or a first class vacation.

The island is a recreation paradise that offers a truly relaxing adventure alongside native palm trees, moss-draped oaks and white sandy beaches.

With no bridges connecting to the mainland of South Carolina, you can understand how the island’s rich history and culture has remained unspoiled all these years.

What I like about Daufuskie Island is that it’s a great example of modern times blending in with times gone by.

The island does not have the commercialization you see with other resort communities. Unmistakably, it has remained true to its origins even against a backdrop of modern villas and cottages.

When you are ready to experience the pleasures of Daufuskie, there are many beachfront cottages, villas, homes and resorts available for you that are conveniently located near local activities.

Whether you prefer the resort life where you can be catered to and pampered or the more private and intimate cottage, you will find what you want here.

If you want sightseeing and adventure, the island is filled with amenities that include some of the best golf courses anywhere as well as art and craft galleries like the Silver Dew pottery shop and the Chase Allen Iron Fish Gallery where you can enjoy hand crafted coastal sculptures.

If you are in the mood for more recreational pursuits, the island offers horseback riding, kayaking, boating, fishing and much more.

When you are hungry, there are many dining establishments available such as Marshside Mama's Cafe, the Old Daufuskie Crab Company Restaurant, the Eagle's Nest Restaurant and more.

For some great entertainment try the Jazz Corner or the Zone for a great lounge experience. The island also offers entertainment venues like the Daufuskie Gallery, the Island Playground, the Arts Center at Coastal Carolina and many others.

When you want to just lay back and relax, the island has an almost mystical feeling as the wind glides through the marshes and oak trees that decorate the beach landscape.

It is a place where you can go and leave all your cares behind for a while, just enjoying the soothing environment and surroundings.

There is plenty here to captivate you and make for a very enjoyable vacation.

When you are ready for a truly amazing and reinvigorating experience in South Carolina, take a look at everything Daufuskie Island has to offer you.
