Things to do

One of the world's oldest oaks

Without a doubt, the most famous attraction on Johns Island is the Angel Oak. While its age is debatable, some believe it is over 1,500 years old though estimates of 400 years are probably more accurate, what isn't up for argument is its extraordinary size. The tree is an ornate, sprawling masterwork of Mother Nature, and a place of pilgrimage for visitors to the area. After you've seen the tree, it's time to have tea. The Charleston Tea Plantation lies in the heart of the Lowcountry near your Johns Island vacation rental and is the only tea farm in North America.


Spotting bottlenose dolphins

Given the serene maritime flavor of the region, it'll come as no surprise that most of Johns Island activities are centered around the ocean. The cool Atlantic waters are rich in nutrients and a haven for wildlife. Down at the dock, you can board any number of guided tours heading out to explore the wildlife on the undeveloped Capers Island, or catch bottlenose dolphins leaping above the surface on a sunset cruise. From your Johns Island vacation rental, you can easily book a private fishing charter whose guide will take you along the tidal creeks and salt marshes to catch sea trout, flounder and even sharks.


Pleasant year-round temperatures

The climate in this part of the state is pleasant all year round. If you manage to bag a Johns Island vacation rental in the summer, expect hot days best spent sailing or taking refreshing dips in the cool Atlantic Ocean. The temperature begins to dip in fall, but the days are still lovely and warm and with fewer visitors you may very well have the beach and shoreline all to yourself. In winter, while much of the rest of the country has to put up with the encroaching frosts, Johns Island is surprisingly mild.

Natural features

Alligators and playful otters

You're never far away from nature and wildlife in Johns Island vacation rentals. The rivers that flow through the region have an abundance of marine life including alligators and playful otters, while nocturnal coyotes, bobcats and wild hogs roam the banks. Scores of birdlife can be spotted at the Caw Caw Interpretive Center, which has miles of trails and elevated boardwalks across marsh and wetlands. Great herons gracefully wade through the shallows in search of fish, while eagles and sea hawks circle overhead. At night, owls can be heard hooting from the oaks that dot the island.
