A Secret Retreat on Daufuskie Island

Along the scenic Calibogue Sound at the southernmost tip of South Carolina, a private paradise awaits those fortunate enough to find it. The distinctive natural beauty of Haig Point, a remote sea island community with no hotels or cars, comes from a marriage of coastal wonder and Lowcountry charm. Long stretches of secluded beaches where dolphins frolic in the waves give way to live oaks draped in cascading Spanish moss that shades winding streets made for meandering by foot, bike, or electric golf cart.

For centuries, Daufuskie Island has stood as a stunning, well-kept secret just across the sound from bustling Hilton Head Island. In more recent decades, Daufuskie’s luxurious 1,000-acre Haig Point community, only accessible by a 30-minute private ferry ride from Hilton Head, has lured residents with the simplicity of island living and well-appointed amenities.
