About Sullivans Island
Sullivans Island is a town and island in Charleston County, South Carolina, United States, at the entrance to Charleston Harbor. The town is part of the Charleston metropolitan area, and is considered a very affluent suburb of Charleston.
Sullivans Island is Isle of Palms’ sister island, located just 100 yards away across beautiful Breach Inlet. Locals describe the difference between the two islands simply — Isle of Palms is more of a “resort town,” while Sullivans Island is more of a “beach town.” Though casual and unhurried, Sullivans Island offers many things to do and sites to see! There is a quaint restaurant area, public tennis courts, and an old-fashioned community playground.
Of course, Sullivans Island offers unbeatable natural amenities — wide and clean beaches, wildlife, fishing, swimming, boating, sunning, and more. Sullivans Island is a perfect destination for those looking for a charming seaside retreat!
Visitors can also enjoy the island’s historic charm by touring Fort Moultrie, originally built during the Revolutionary War, and visiting the burial site of Seminole Indian Chief Osceola. Other historic sites include the Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse, and numerous batteries that provided defense until the end of World War II. Sullivans Island has a rich literary history that continues today. Edgar Allen Poe wrote his famous story The Gold Bug and a number of well-known poems while stationed on the Island.
