Escape to Daufuskie Island

Take a trip to a place that can only be described as paradise beyond—Daufuskie Island. Daufuskie Island is steeped in a simpler time without a bridge to the mainland and only a few paved roads. White sand beaches, ancient oaks, Spanish moss, and historical landmarks all lend a rural, “back-in-time” feel, while an eclectic arts scene keeps the island's spirit alive and thriving. This fascinating combination of new and old, tradition and progress means Daufuskie is the perfect destination to step back in time, unplug from the every day, and reconnect with friends and family.
