Sullivan’s Island

Map of Sullivan’s Island

History dots the shoreline stretch of Sullivan’s Island, with Fort Moultrie’s American Revolution fortifications also providing perches to revel in the ocean views of this two-and-a-half-mile barrier island. At the same time, the two-tone, triangular Charleston Light, as locals know the Sullivan’s Island Lighthouse, offers a rare local nod to mid-century design as it beams into the night.

Make the scene on Middle Street

A residential haven, Sullivan’s Island opts from homes over hotels, and is host to only a few vacation rentals. Still, pleasure seekers flock to its shores to take in its stellar beachfront, as well as partake of the dynamic dining and shopping scene along Middle Street. There, sun-kissed, sand-dusted revelers slip in for an easy bite or a beachy treasure, too.
