Surrounded by salt marshes, tidal creeks, and ancient, iconic oak trees, Callawassie island is one of hundreds of barrier and sea islands in the southeast corner of the outer coastal plain of South Carolina, making up a portion of Beaufort County.
The Island's 800 acres are centrally located 17 miles southwest of Beaufort, South Carolina, 30 miles northeast of Savannah, Georgia, and 275 miles southeast of Atlanta, Georgia. Nestled in the confluence of Callawassie Creek and the Little Chechessee, Okatie, and Colleton Rivers, Callawassie Island is also home to the Callawassie Sugar Works, the only sugar mill known to exist in South Carolina.
In 2006, Callawassie Island was designated as South Carolina's first Community Wildlife Habitat with more than 200 residences being certified as Backyard Wildlife Habitats.
Half of Callawassie Island's property owners are full-time residents with many more living here for the majority of the year. The remainder of property owners treat the Island as a resort and vacation paradise and round out this vibrant, dynamic community.
The Island's friendly, relaxed tone is the perfect environment for forging strong community ties among the residents. Whether it's attending club events, participating in abundant activities or serving on one of the island's boards or committees, there will never be a dull moment on Callawassie Island.
