A barrier island along the South Carolina coast, undiscovered, unspoiled and offering a relaxing change to your busy lifestyles. Lush semi-tropical woodlands; nearly five miles of pristine beach; superb fishing, crabbing and shelling. This quiet island, separated from the mainland by the Edisto River, began in antiquity. Archaeologists have explored numerous sites that Edisto Indians and others once called home.
Bought from Indians in 1674 by the British for a few tools, some trinkets, and a length of cloth, Edisto produced riches in indigo and then Sea Island cotton. A Bed & Breakfast, Wyndham Resorts, and other rental companies offer accommodations from upscale villas to quaint cottages as a base for days spent on this shell-scattered beach. A newly renovated 18-hole championship golf course, a museum for the history buffs, water or land tours, shops, restaurants, a Serpentarium, and a very popular State Park provide plenty of activities.
