Daufuskie Island is a sea island situated off the South Carolina coast, approximately one nautical mile west of Hilton Head Island’s Harbour Town. In addition to the Atlantic Ocean, Daufuskie Island is bordered by the Cooper River and the Calibogue sound. Over four hundred full time residents call Daufuskie Island home, while numerous others own second homes or vacation homes on the island, which is about five miles in length and two & one half miles wide.
Today, Daufuskie Island offers residents and visitors alike a rich and unique blend of history and modern conveniences, while still holding on to echoes from the past. The island is accessible only by boat or ferry service. Many of the roads remain unpaved. One of the Island’s oldest buildings, First Union African Baptist Church, is still in use as a place for worship. The Haig Point and Bloody Point lighthouses, built in the late 1800’s, are historic landmarks and popular tourist sites, as are the Tabby Ruins situated in the Haig Point Community
