Natural Beauty & Local History
Situated at the mouth of the Charleston Harbor, Sullivans Island is truly a natural paradise. Due in part to a conservative stance on commercial development, the island boasts landscapes of lush green foliage, rolling dunes, and unspoiled views. Local lowcountry wildlife abounds at this beachside retreat. Fishermen can enjoy some of the lowcountry’s finest action while birdwatchers can observe the busy nesting season in towering trees.
The island also has much to offer for any history buff. The Revolutionary War-era Fort Moultrie— constructed to defend Charleston’s harbor against the British—still stands on the tip of the island. Later, the Civil War and even WWII touched the island’s landscapes with federal installments and lookout posts. Across Sullivan’s Island, sites are largely connected by a series of dune and beach-forest trails, making for a memorable walk through history.
