Sullivans Island

Nestled at the mouth of the Charleston Harbor and neighbor to the Isle of Palms, Sullivan's Island is an inviting mix of wide beaches and watersports, history and folklore, local restaurants and shops, peace and perfect - just minutes from one of the country's most beloved cities, Charleston, South Carolina.

At just 3.3 miles, what Sullivan's Island lacks in sheer size, it more than makes up for in beauty and charm.
