Kiawah Island is a natural beauty. Carefully and thoughtfully planned, as lush as it has always been, Kiawah Island offers relaxation, recreation and privacy. Having escaped the wind and water of Hugo, Kiawah Island is the vision of what a Carolina barrier island should be. Live oaks drip with Spanish moss, palmettos sway in the ocean breeze, beautiful magnolias with sweetgrass plants edge the lagoons and marshes. The environment is very hospitable to white-tailed deer, bobcat, foxes, and migrating seabirds, and nature-loving Kiawah residents and visitors see them within close range daily.
People come to Kiawah Island to enjoy the beach, to play tennis, golf or just relax. Six championship courses make this island a golfer’s paradise. Biking, boating, kayaking, and fishing are all fun ways to enjoy Kiawah Island while many other choices remain for dining, shopping, and spa relaxation.
