Daniel Ravenel Sotheby's International Realty - Isle of Palms

Isle of Palms


Originally known as Long Island, the Isle of Palms is a barrier island that offers the best of both worlds: a larger downtown area with supermarkets and shopping as well as a pristine oceanfront beach that stretches six miles across. Here, Isle of Palms real estate varies from smaller condos to homes well over a million dollars, but no matter where you call home, you can be sure you’ll be only minutes from the beach.

Originally developed in the early 20th century as a small tourist location with a hotel, the area was built up mid-century with numerous veteran dwellings and has blossomed into a full resort destination. Large beachfront Isle of Palms real estate properties are prominent through the palmetto fronds that line Ocean Boulevard. The Island also boasts the popular Isle of Palms County Park with outdoor showers and changing rooms as well as other amenities. The Isle of Palms Marina is also a popular spot, not only for fishermen embarking on deep sea fishing expeditions, but also for recreational boaters as the marina offers public boat access.

Find Your Perfect Beach Home

The renowned Wild Dunes community situated at the north end of the island offers innumerable amenities including tennis, clubhouses, and a world-renowned golf course right on the Intracoastal Waterway. These Isle of Palms real estate properties are grand and sprawling in the gated community, and many offer deep water docks or boat slips for owner use. This community was planned by the same developers who built much of Hilton Head Island, and Wild Dunes has become a premier vacation spot and popular full-time residence community.
