Escape to Daufuskie Island

Leave the crowds and enjoy a truly rejuvenating beach get-away. Only 1 mile south of Hilton Head but accessible only by ferry, Daufuskie Island is an island lost in a simpler time and the perfect place to take a step away from it all. 

Daufuskie is known for its rich Gullah history, its eccentric arts culture, empty beaches, and rare wildlife—from Bald Eagles to Marsh Tacky horses.
