Daufuskie Island is a place where life moves at a slower pace. What’s most unique about this island is that there’s no bridge connecting it to the mainland. Accessible only by ferry, Daufuskie is the ultimate spot if you’re looking for a uniquely beautiful getaway.
There are no cars, no obnoxious crowds to fight through, and it’s home to many local treasures. The island offers visitors a look at what other sea islands must have been before bridges and highways.
Daufuskie is often known as being home to three of the best golf courses on earth, but if you take a closer look, you’ll see there’s much more to this island paradise than meets the eye. Many of it’s native residents have been on Daufuskie for generations, having made a living oystering and fishing the local waters for decades.
Once you experience the pristine beaches and beautiful marshes, the moss-draped oaks span a dirt road deep into Daufuskie’s ancient maritime forest where you will find a treasured local landmark; the Iron Fish Art Gallery. This charming gallery is home to the creations of local artist and sculptor, Chase Allen, known for his vintage sculptures inspired by the coastal beauty, right here on Daufuskie Island.
