Dewees Island is a unique side of Charleston that is rarely seen. This residential community is located 11 miles north of Charleston and is surrounded by a natural environment of 2 ½ miles of beaches and dunes, and a maritime forest that is undisturbed on the northern edge of Charleston.
This private island is only accessible by private ferry or boat, and cars are not allowed on the island. The ferry runs from the Isle of Palms Marina and is a calm, short, and beautiful trip through the Intracoastal Waterway. Once you arrive, there are electric golf carts available for owners as transportation, as the use of gas-powered vehicles is prohibited.
