Seabrook Island features three and a half miles of Atlantic Ocean beach front and another mile of sandy shore stretching along the North Edisto River. The island’s uncrowded beaches are ideal for swimming, shelling, fishing, dolphin watching, or even riding horses from the renowned Seabrook Equestrian Center. Seabrook is home to a variety of wildlife such as marsh rabbits, red fox, otters and white tail deer. More than thirty species of reptiles can be found, among them alligators, tree frogs, chameleons and turtles. The island has been involved with the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, North American Bird Watching Open since 1998. More than eighty species, including the bald eagle, have been regularly spotted on the island.
There are no hotels or high-rise condominiums on Seabrook, only private homes, villas and cottages designed to complement the island’s stunning natural beauty. Despite it’s peaceful seclusion, Seabrook Island offers residents and guests two championship golf courses, a tennis center, horseback riding, award-winning dining, a fitness center, shopping, a deep-water marina and many other world-class amenities. Just a few miles from historic Charleston, South Carolina, Seabrook Island’s 2,200 acres stands as a reminder of the pleasures of a slower pace of life.
