Harbor Island South Carolina Real Estate and General Information


The Island

Harbor Island is a 1,700 acre private gated community located on a barrier Island with over 2 miles of white sand beach bordered by Harbor River, St. Helena Sound, The Atlantic Ocean and Johnson Creek. Along with its' sister Islands, Hunting and Fripp, it offers protection to the delicate marshland to the west that supports one of the richest eco-systems in the world... a microcosm of plant and animal life that thrives amongst the waves of Spartina Grass, which in turn nourishes shrimp and snails, oysters, fish, porpoises and other animals and marsh birds up the food chain.

Harbor Island Living

What distinguishes Harbor Island from other seaside communities is its uniquely tranquil Lowcountry beach lifestyle. Here fishing, crabbing, kayaking, beach-combing and reading while swaying in the breeze in a hammock are relaxing recreational mainstays. For more active individuals the Island's social hub is the recently renovated Beach and Racquet Club located mid-island. It offers four Har-tru tennis courts, a large community pool, separate kiddie's pool, volleyball court, children's playground and a fitness center.

 Harbor Island Real Estate

Harbor Island real estate offers a wide variety of choices in both style and price range, from private Ocean Front homes, duplexes and villas (condominiums), to marsh view homes and interior homes veiled by lush sub-tropical vegetation. As you move inland from the beach, most of the elevated homes offer at least glimpses of the Ocean along with extensive marsh views teaming with marsh birds and other forms of wildlife. The southwest part of the Island offers secluded homes surrounded by towering pines and majestic live oaks dripping with Spanish Moss gently veiling the views of tranquil ponds or marsh/ocean views. The important thing to remember is that you are never more than a few minutes ride to the beach by golf cart!
