Sullivan’s Island Real Estate


Sullivan’s Island is a two and a half mile carrier island near the entrance of the Charleston Harbor. In 1989 the eye of Hurricane Hugo passed over the island causing devastation across the beach community. Since then Sullivan’s Island has blossomed into a thriving beach town with small-town charm and historical significance.

There are roughly about 2,000 residents in half as many households. Sullivan’s Island does not permit short-term rentals, nor does it have any hotels for short-term stays. This keeps the island as a local favorite escape from the more touristy spots. The maritime forest on Sullivan’s offers protection for nesting sea turtles and provides habitat for nesting and migratory birds. Nature lovers will also appreciate the Sullivan’s Island Nature Trail located at the corner of Station 16 and Atlantic Avenue. It includes 650 feet of boardwalk and nature trail, with observation benches and decks with views of the Charleston harbor.

While it’s a small island, Sullivan’s has many choices for dining and drinking. Cruise down Center Street for favorites like HomeTeam BBQ, Poe’s Tavern, and Obstinate Daughter.
