Welcome to Fripp


Welcome to Fripp

Dear Visitors;

Welcome to Fripp Island! To help you and your family enjoy your time here, we have addressed and implemented safety protocols for the community and on the beach.

If you are visiting for the first time, this is a very special place. Fripp island allows you to escape to another world – a world of long pure white 3½ miles of wide beaches, and where the lazy surf rolls in from the Atlantic. Even though you’re only 19 miles from the bustling port city and one of America’s most charming cities, Beaufort, make this South Carolina Sea Island the ideal destination for families. Our 3,000-acre gated community – is a designated wildlife sanctuary that combines scenic coastal nature and private beach access with an appealing array of real estate options, resort services, and recreational amenities. Our island is just close enough to major services and amenities, but secluded enough that it feels like its own private world, and in a way, it is.

Fripp Island is the perfect retreat for a family that enjoys biking, kayaking, restful excursions to the beach, and nature walks. Our unspoiled Atlantic beaches are a nesting area for the loggerhead turtles. The on-site marina provides direct access to superb boating and fishing among South Carolina Lowcountry’s barrier islands. Once you travel over the bridge onto our private community, you will see why many call us a paradise.

We are proud to have more than 1,600 full-time and part-time property owners whose houses dot the landscape. We all have one thing in common; we love this place. Once you arrive, you know what lies ahead – a place to leave your worries behind, a place to relax and unwind, a place for fun, friendships, and family memories. Fripp Island is a treasure chest of relaxation for a short time or a lifetime — you’re invited to discover it yourself.
