Sullivans Island / Isle of Palms

From Mount Pleasant over the Isle of Palms Connector, a 3-minute ride puts you on beautiful beaches with lush tropical vegetation. The Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island are barrier islands, just 20 minutes from downtown Charleston, and are home to year-round residents and the owners of second homes. The shore comes alive in the summer with the laughter of residents and vacationers swimming in the surf and relaxing on the beach. The resident population enjoys the security, climate and relaxed lifestyle of a small beachside community.

Isle of Palms History

The Isle of Palms is believed to be at least 25,000 years old, and the original inhabitants were the Seewee Indians. They disappeared soon after the arrival of the European colonists in the 17th century. According to legend, the only other inhabitants of the island were pirates who buried treasure in the dunes and woods.

The island was first named Hunting Island, probably in recognition of the fish and game it provided for the early settlers. Adjacent to Sullivan’s Island, the Isle of Palms was the scene of significant action during the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. In 1864, the CSS Hunley, a 9-man submarine, was launched and became the first submarine to sink an enemy vessel. After sinking the USS Housatonic, the Hunley and her crew were lost at sea. In the 1990s, the wreck of the Hunley was discovered off the shore of Sullivan’s Island and in 2000 was recovered. Today, this historical nautical wonder is proudly displayed in North Charleston.

The Isle of Palms remained without permanent residents until about 1899, when it was purchased and given its current name. In 1906, a 50-room resort hotel was built and Charlestonians began to arrive by ferry boat to enjoy the peacefulness and cool ocean breezes.

Wild Dunes Resort

Isle of Palms is home to the Wild Dunes Resort. It has two Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole golf courses that are open to the public. Both were ranked in the top 100 by Golf Magazine. The Links course winds through the dunes to the Atlantic Ocean, while the Harbor course’s layout is along the Intracoastal Waterway. Both courses call for strategic thinking and skillful shots.

Parks

The Isle of Palms County Park provides lifeguards (in season), along with basic amenities. At the Southern tip of Sullivan’s Island, the Fort Moultrie National Monument, operated by the National Park Service, is the site of the firing on Fort Sumter in 1861, during the Civil War.
