Kiawah Island Waterfront Real Estate, A barrier island paradise

Walking along this 10-mile (16 km) stretch of undisturbed Atlantic beach, guests find it hard to believe that the City of Charleston is a mere 21 miles (34 km) away. The island abounds in natural beauty, from endless acres of marsh to thick forests of pines, magnolias and massive live oaks. Whether you stay at the phenomenal Sanctuary Hotel or a privately owned home, villa or cottage, you'll be a short distance from the challenge of championship golf, award-winning tennis, an assortment of specialty shops and one of the finest stretches of white sand beach on the East Coast!

You'll enjoy especially memorable dining, from a Lowcountry oyster roast and barbecue to an opulent Sunday brunch at the Inn's Jasmine Porch restaurant. Like the beach itself, the opportunities to enjoy this beautiful island seem endless. In fact, the Travel Channel called Kiawah's beach one of the nation's 'Top Ten.'

If you're a golfer, you'll have an unequaled selection of award-winning courses on which to test your skill: Oak Point by Clyde Johnston, Turtle Point by Jack Nicklaus, Cougar Point by Gary Player, Osprey Point by Tom Fazio, and the famed Ocean Course by Pete Dye.

These three prestigious events rank among golf's premier international competitions. The Ocean Course received further recognition by Golf Digest as 'America's Toughest Resort Course' and by Golf Magazine as 'one of the world's top 100.' For tennis buffs, there are two complete tennis centers, with fully staffed pro shops, extensive instructional facilities and a zoned practice court with an automated ball machine.
