Once you walk along the undisturbed beaches of Seabrook Island, you'll quickly find it hard to believe that the city of Charleston is less than 30 miles away. Seabrook Island abounds in natural beauty: from endless acres of marsh to thick forests of pines, magnolias and live oaks, South Carolina's "Lowcountry" is the perfect destination whether you're ready to settle down or are planning a short stay.
Seabrook Island is a private community that presents a refreshingly slower pace compared to the busy city of Charleston. The community is completely owned by property owners. In Seabrook, entry in to the island is controlled by a security gate that ensures privacy for stay-and-play resort guests and residents. Seabrook Island resort guests staying in member owned villas have full member privileges and access to all facilities. The natural beauty of Seabrook is immediately apparent as you enter under a canopy of great oaks and a myriad of trees and flora native to the sea island region. There are three miles of pristine beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and the Edisto River. Marshes teeming with wildlife and vistas changing with the tides captivate residents who enjoy this idyllic setting.
Seabrook Island is a natural wonder. It features miles of marshes, lagoons, fresh water estuaries and the Kiawah River, which connect with the Stono River and the Intra-coastal Waterway. The maritime forest is dominated by oaks, palmetto and pines, hickories, sweetgum and magnolia in the sub-canopy, redbay, sassafras, wax myrtle and yaupon holly in the lower understory, and sea oats along the dune areas. There are 18 species of mammals, more than 30 species of reptiles and amphibians and over 190 species of birds which call Seabrook Island and the surrounding island communities home.
Golfing is considered one of the more popular pastimes here in Seabrook Island. Two courses can be found in Seabrook, Ocean Winds and Crooked Oaks, offering players 36 holes of challenging championship golf. Additionally, Seabrook Island's golf course is a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program.
All in all, Seabrook Island is filled with beautiful homes, endless recreational activities, and friendly neighbors. Magnificent gardens grace many of the open areas which enhance the beauty of the colonial, antebellum and Victorian architecture. When considering a move to the greater Charleston area and the "Lowcountry" islands, Seabrook Island is a destination unlike any other.
