Our Island

Driving across our private, 1/4-mile causeway, you leave behind the hectic world and enter paradise. The Island's friendly, relaxed tone promotes strong bonds among our residents. The community is home to more than 50 clubs. Golfers, boaters, tennis players, bridge players, fishers and gardeners get to know each other through club events and activities. Navigating the island’s bike paths, and coastal waters is another way we connect with each other, and with nature. Neighbors celebrate joyful times together and are always willing to lend a hand when needed.

Our History

In the early 17th century, the Yemassee Indians gave Callawassie Island its name, which means "calm waters." James Hamilton, a legislator and general, was the gentleman who constructed Callawassie Island’s historic Sugar Mill Ruins. Sugar cane did not prosper, but the old mill tabby remnants remain. Over the centuries, the island evolved from a thriving indigo plantation to a southern playground for the nation's industrial elite. In 1981, Callawassie Island established its modern identity and was developed into the private community that flourishes today.
