Seaside fun in Fripp Island vacation home rentals

To call Fripp Island, South Carolina a singular destination really wouldn’t be doing it justice. Get ready to experience an island with a vast assortment of unusual native wildlife; an island with the historical charm of yesteryear in the shape of drive-ins and carriage rides; an island that is itself a movie star; an island where everyone drives… golf carts?! And with Fripp Island vacation rentals, you're just a hop, skip and a jump from beaches, restaurants, marshes, golf courses, art galleries, pirate ships and so much more…

Things to do

Sightseeing near vacation rentals in Fripp Island

Fripp Island vacation rentals have long attracted vacationers of one kind or another, but one visitor is said to have left something behind: local legends say that the fearsome pirate Blackbeard actually buried his treasure here! Keep your eyes peeled for it as you explore the sights, from the panoramic (and climbable!) Hunting Island Lighthouse to the historical ruins of the St. Helena Parish Chapel of Ease in nearby Frogmore. Movie buffs will doubtless want to check out the Ocean Creek Golf Course, where scenes of Forrest Gump were filmed.

Activities

Things to do near Fripp Island vacation homes

Start the day right by taking in the glorious sunrise on a stroll along one of the island’s many spectacular white sand beaches. The rest of it is yours to enjoy: rent a golf cart and set out on a scavenger hunt, cast a line out at Wardle’s Landing, or try out some watersports: paddle surfing and kayaking are both popular options, depending on whether you prefer the natural beauty of neighboring Pritchards Island or the liberating rush of riding the waves of the Atlantic. A seafood dinner is, of course, de rigeur—try the she-crab soup, with locally-caught blue crab meat!

Weather

Local weather during your stay in Fripp Island vacation homes

Travelers looking to plan their trip are truly spoilt for choice in terms of when to go: semi-tropical Fripp Island is pleasantly warm from March through to November, with the best time for hardcore sun-seekers and beachgoers being May through September. This intense summer heat is, however, wonderfully balanced by refreshing rain showers and the ocean breeze from the Atlantic, and you can always while away the scorching South Carolina afternoons on the shady porch of Fripp Island vacation rentals, watching the world go by with a glass of iced tea in hand.

Natural features

Fripp Island’s wildlife is turtley awesome!

Once a private hunting range, Fripp Island is now home to an impressive number of rare and beautiful species of flora and fauna; in fact, the entire island is an Audubon-designated bird preserve, with bald eagles and ospreys in the skies and pelicans, storks, egrets and herons on the water—not to mention the frolicking dolphins! The annual loggerhead sea turtle migration, monitored by the Turtle Team, is a sight to behold: every summer, thousands of tiny turtle hatchlings make the journey from the beach down to the ocean to begin their lives—a truly magical view!
