Those who seek something rare and naturally beautiful should look no further than Spring Island, one of the last private sea islands on the Atlantic coast. Located 18 miles from Hilton Head Island and 15 miles south of Beaufort, this 3,000-acre private plantation features the attributes of a national nature preserve with the amenities of a first class resort When completed, Spring Island will contain only 410 homes, making it one of the lowest density communities on the East Coast. Its Habitat Review Committee and naturalist staff are always on guard, ensuring that the nature preserve, clubs, recreational facilities and homes are graciously woven into the plantation's ecological fabric.
The amenities at Spring Island are a unique mix and cater to the sporting lifestyle. There is an equestrian facility with boarding stables, miles of marked trails, skeet and sporting clays plus hunting. Residents can kayak, boat and fish for crabs and shrimp. More traditional offerings include a swimming pool, fitness facilities and tennis. Spring Island's exquisite 18-hole Arnold Palmer golf course is designed for those who enjoy the scenery as much as the game - and prefer to walk.
