Daufuskie IslandA short sail away from the shores of Hilton Head Island, Daufuskie Island is a residential barrier island rich in Gullah history with just over four hundred permanent, full time residents. The Island is 5 miles long by 2.5 miles wide and enjoys 3 miles of pristine beaches. Surrounded by Calibogue Sound and Intracoastal waterway, Daufuskie is accessible only by boat (or ferry). Comprised of natural marshlands and five developed communities, it is home to an interesting array of architecture and history. Many Lowcountry residents and visitors enjoy day trips to Daufuskie’s waterfront restaurants/outdoor bars, live bands and golf courses. The island also has many short-term rental opportunities available for relaxing island getaways where the only mode of transportation is by golf cart. Daufuskie Island was made famous by late author Pat Conroy, in his memoir, The Water is Wide. The book recalls his time spent as a teacher in the little school house on the Island, (called Yamacraw Island at that time) and his experience with the local islanders, their culture and history.
