On the Beach at Seabrook Island
Seabrook Island is a quiet gated community about 30 miles from Charleston, SC. A visit to Seabrook is one giant photo opportunity. The wildlife is protected and roams freely. Alert photographers will be awestruck at the opportunities for fantastic snapshots. Catch a super photo of seagulls in flight, dolphins in the ocean waters, wandering deer, fast little foxes, and fascinating alligators.
You will not find big hotels or heavy traffic at Seabrook. But you can rent a villa for a week or a few months. Over 700 families live at Seabrook full time--full time residents outnumber the visitors. That's one of the things that makes Seabrook so special.
If you want to enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life and historical tours, visit Charleston for a day. But after your day of sightseeing, come home to Seabrook. And relax!

There are two beach areas at Seabrook -
Pelican Beach is actually on the North Edisto River Inlet and is my personal favorite. They say that relaxation is a requirement on Pelican Beach, and indeed you will feel yourself relaxing from the first moment you see it. Uncrowded and peaceful, Pelican Beach is next to the beautiful new Seabrook Island Clubhouse and swimming pool area.
North Beach on the Atlantic coast boasts one of the widest beaches in the Carolinas. You will enjoy the huge sand dunes, too.
