Wadmalaw Island is located southwest of Johns Island in Charleston County. Driving onto the island on SC 700, you can stop and visit America's only working tea plantation. The rich soil and temperate climate of Wadmalaw Island has supported commercial and family farms for generations. Long famous for tomatoes, the island is also dotted with u-pick family farms and Community Sponsored Agriculture cooperatives. Wadmalaw prides itself on strict conservation and maintains its rural character with strict building and density regulations. Lot sizes are large and estate grounds are majestic throughout this area thanks to these restrictions.
