Hunting Island, South Carolina Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Hunting Island is a small semi-tropical barrier island, located along the Atlantic Ocean. The island is continually changing shape due to the forces of erosion. Its name came from the hunting of waterfowl, deer and other game that was once practiced here.

Hunting Island is home to one of Beaufort County's most treasured public beaches, Hunting Island State Park. The clean and expansive four miles of beach is dotted with palmetto trees, and home to Loggerhead turtles who lay hundreds of eggs there every May. The abundant wildlife, saltwater marshes, lagoons, and lush subtropical forest make visiting Hunting Island State Park like stepping back in time and discovering a pristine coastal paradise.

Although it is South Carolina's most visited state park, its 5,000 acres and variety of activities ensure you'll never feel crowded. The park offers a nature center, hiking and biking trails, and a marsh boardwalk that winds under the dense canopy of palmettos and oaks. The park's historic Hunting Island Lighthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and is open to the public. Oceanside picnic tables and camping are available.

The tropical, secluded feeling of Hunting Island cannot be overstated. If fact, scenes from The Jungle Book were shot here.

Hunting Island is located 16 miles East of Beaufort on Highway 21. If coming from Savannah or Charleston, it is 42 miles East of I-95 on Highway 21.
