Overview

A small island along the South Carolina coast with a gently sloping white beach, mighty oaks, palms, pines, vast marshes with meandering tidal creeks and a surprising abundance of wild life, Fripp Island captivates both residents and visitors. The ebb and flow of tides, the fortunes and difficulties of developers and the fluctuations in the residential community have shaped Fripp's history. In the years since 1963 when the bridge to Fripp was built, two constants in the island's history have been the beauty of its natural setting and its dedicated residents who share their time and talents to create a special community.
