Sullivan’s Island is a Charleston County island town at the entrance to Charleston Harbor. The bridge that spans Breach Inlet is all that separates it from its neighboring barrier island, Isle of Palms. Boasting a long and storied military history, its recovery from Hurricane Hugo in 1989 has been remarkable. Its year-round population of 2000 or so live a very enviable lifestyle, especially as the town works diligently to limit transient rentals of any form. Like IOP, Sullivan’s Island benefits greatly from its direct access to both the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway.
Its downtown has become a must-visit for both tourists and local residents. A diverse array of renowned restaurants of all types accompany an eclectic mix of retail stores…all just a block or two from its very inviting beach.
