Wadmalaw Island


Wadmalaw Island is a small community located off of Johns Island about 45 minutes from downtown Charleston. A beloved retreat in both winter and summer, Wadmalaw Island was first discovered in early colonial times and grew into a planting community by the late 19th century. In fact, the Charleston Tea Plantation is located on the island and is the last working tea plantation in the country.
