This coastal paradise has three miles of white, sandy beach; an average
annual high temperature of 74 degrees; sits on 1400 acres of pristine
wildlife sanctuary; and is surrounded by 11 championship golf courses and
one of the most historic cities in America.
Is it heaven? Not quite - it's Harbor Island.
A planned private community only 15 miles from Beaufort, SC, Harbor Island
offers a secluded coastal retreat for homeowners who enjoy the relaxing feel
of the barrier island with the all the conveniences of urban living nearby.
For years, Harbor Island was home only to sea turtles, shorebirds, deer and
racoons, a windswept sliver of sand dunes and maritime forest bordering
beautiful St. Helena Sound. After adjacent Hunting Island became a state
park and was opened for visitation in 1938, the enchanting nature of Harbor
Island became well-known, and today the teeming wildlife shares the island
with new residents who also prefer the pristine coastal environment.
Condominiums and homesites on Harbor Island offer magnificent views of the
Atlantic Ocean, St. Helena Sound, and nearby Hunting Island State Park.
Located amid Beaufort county's archipelago of barrier islands, Harbor Island
is only minutes away from a wide spectrum of outdoor activities that include
golf, tennis, boating, surfing, fishing, shrimping, sailing, hiking or
simply lying on a beach towel.
