— Dewees Island —

Dewees Island is a private barrier island north of Isle of Palms, a residential community integrated within a nature conservancy for the preservation of its wetlands and maritime forest. Its inhabitants form a close knit community of environmentally conscious naturalists.

The island is 2½ miles of pristine beaches and marshes with an undisturbed maritime forest, accessible only by the ferry or a private boat. Residents enjoy a total immersion into nature, complete with all the wildlife just not seen in more developed areas. Transportation within the island is limited to a fleet of golf carts that roam its wooden beachwalks and unpaved trails, in addition to the walkers and cyclists. 

Dewees Island manages its own utility and emergency services, as well as the ferry that runs hourly from the Isle of Palms Marina. Amenities include a community center with swimming pool, tennis courts, game room, and hospitality suites that may be rented to owners and their guests, including those that own a vacant lot and simply wish to enjoy visiting the island.
