Dewees Island

*Spring Break adventure #2... it is remote and you'll need a boat -

Just 11 miles north of Charleston there is a barrier island called Dewees (32.8403° N, 79.7164° W). You can see the pristine beaches of Dewees Island from the far end of the Isle of Palms. This is a private island with homesites and rentals but don't dismay -you can reach the island by ferry click here. To learn absolutely everything you need to know about Dewees and view fantastic photos of the island please check out this amazing blog. Blog creator and photographer Judy Fairchild and her husband Reggie have made a lovely home on the island with their 3 children and commute to Mt. Pleasant and Charleston daily - what they don't know about island life and the creatures that share the island with them isn't worth knowing! (Judy is a naturalist certified in SC) They have helped to create a fantastic Island Nature Center that's available as a bonus with your 20 minute boat ride from the IOP marina. Here are some images from a recent trip I made to the island. Can't wait to go back.
