Beaufort SC oceanfront propertyWhen someone says "beach" in Beaufort, some obvious places come to mind. Hunting Island, for instance, with its several miles of beach and unique maritime forest, is the most visited state park in South Carolina, and an incredibly popular destination for Beaufortonians and visitors alike.

Fripp Island and Harbor Island, just to the northwest, are Beaufort's best-known beach communities, and offer access to several miles of beach. At either Fripp or Harbor, you can find a single-bedroom condo within easy walking distance to the beach, or a lavish beachfront home.

But there are some lesser-known beaches in Beaufort as well, namely Coffin Point and Land's End, which sit on opposite sides of St. Helena Island, one of Beaufort's large barrier islands. Although many property buyers may not know it, both Coffin Point and Land's End have beach access.

Land's End is on the southeasterly corner of St. Helena Island, and overlooks Port Royal. Land's End is a popular destination for those seeking a weekend getaway, because of its rustic charm and tranquility. The beach area overlooks Port Royal Sound, with distant views of the Atlantic Ocean. On a sunny day in the spring or summer, Port Royal Sound is one of the main waterways used by Beaufort boaters, as they make their way to and from deep-sea fishing expeditions, or trips to the sandbar.

There are currently nine homes listed in the Land's End area, from a $63,900 mobile home to a $449,000 home with deep-water access along Port Royal Sound.

Coffin Point is on the other side of St. Helena, 13 miles straight up Seaside Road, which just about runs the length of St. Helena Island, connecting the two areas.

There are currently 22 homes listed in Coffin Point, from $49,500, to $625,000 for a home overlooking St. Helena Sound. On a given day, you might see locals riding their horses around the dirt roads of Coffin Point.
