Seabrook Island

Seabrook Island has got to be Greater Charleston’s most enigmatic community. It is a true resort community known best for being Kiawah Island’s next door neighbor and is one of the most internationally recognized Islands in South Carolina, yet it’s not even an island, and though it’s a fully guarded and gated community, it’s also a legitimate municipality. Seabrook Island is the private resort community/town at the ocean front tip of Johns Island. The beaches of Seabrook are natural and varied across its peninsular shape. The best of Seabrook’s beaches are on the calm southwestern turn at the mouth of the Edisto River, where the sun sets across a long water view, for a uniquely “west coast” feel for an east coast barrier island. Seabrook boasts beautifully scenic oak canopied island drives, a first class golf course, an equestrian center, a marina, most all other resort amenities, and the well-known Camp Saint Christopher youth beach retreat (Episcopal church managed). Seabrook also enjoys as adjacent neighbors the scenic Bohicket Marina and the wonderfully designed Freshfields Village shops. Seabrook Island is a smooth and scenic 45 minute drive from the downtown historic district, and enjoys easy access to many excellent restaurants on Johns Island and on the Kiawah Resort.   In 2007 the Town of Seabrook Island had an estimated population of 1200.
