Locate just east of Beaufort, St Helena Island is a primarily undeveloped barrier island along the Atlantic Ocean.  Bordered by St Helena Sound to the north and Port Royal Sound to the south, waterfront property is plentiful and reasonably priced.  Most appealing is the rural landscape which is in such close proximity to beaches, golf and historic downtown Beaufort, South Carolina.  

St Helena Island SC Homes for Sale

Once home to a few prosperous plantations, St. Helena Island is now a beautifully undeveloped waterfront paradise, where families enjoy a serene, rural retreat.  About ten minutes from downtown Beaufort, the island covers almost 65 square miles, and includes a variety of neighborhoods and communities, including Polawana Island, with its quiet seclusion, Bermuda Bluff, a gated community beside the Beaufort River and Intracoastal Waterway, Lands End, with its fantastic Lowcountry scenery, Coffin Point, site of a former plantation and home to the Coffin family who fled their home in advance of the Union troops in 1861, and Dataw Island, a well-developed, extremely popular active senior lifestyle community with dozens of special-interest groups and neighborhoods.

St Helena Island SC:  Historic Low Country Sea Island


Perhaps the beauty of St. Helena can be found in such a variety of opportunities to live so close to downtown Beaufort, yet in such peaceful surroundings.  Property is plentiful on the island, and lots are available which range from waterfront, to marsh area and woodlands, from less than half an acre to estate homesites.  Single family homes range from getaway cottages to elegant homes that rival real estate in Beaufort, or anywhere else in the Lowcountry.

St. Helena has history which goes beyond the old plantations to include the slaves who lived in the area.  Families travel from throughout the U.S. to visit well-known Penn Center with its mission to promote and preserve the history and culture of the Sea Island.  

In addition to an abundance of watersports, nature trails, and nearby amenities such as golf and tennis, St. Helena has attracted folks who genuinely value the history, beauty, natural wonders, climate and accessibility to cities, shopping, airports and excellent services.

The best way to appreciate St. Helena is to spend a day or two discovering its many attributes with a knowledgeable guide.  Gated community, property at the end of a long, winding dirt road, waterfront retreat, getaway refuge -- it's all within reach here.
