The Land

It all starts with the land.

The 20,000 acre-tract known as Palmetto Bluff extends from the headwaters of the May River near the town of Bluffton, skirts Bull and Daufuskie Islands via the Cooper River to its east, and gives way finally to the ancient freshwater rice fields of the New River along its western edge.

On the Water

32 miles of waterfront.

Cast a line into one of our many ponds and lakes or in the May River. Explore the stunning sea or tranquil water trails in your own kayak or canoe - or be a little more adventurous and grab a paddleboard. If you prefer a slower-paced waterfront activity, pack a picnic basket and relax on a unique beach that nature hides with the tides.
