About Fripp Island
Fripp is the most seaward of the beautiful barrier islands of South Carolina, 3,000 acres of natural beauty. Designated as a Wildlife Sanctuary, more than 175 species of birds live along the ocean and Great Salt Marsh. Any given day you can spot majestic brown pelicans flying in formation or great blue herons, snowy white egrets and wood storks stalking their next meal. Among the native wildlife, you’ll find raccoons, alligator and an abundance of deer, more than 250 at last count.
The ocean abounds in bass, trout, flounder, grouper and blue crabs. Dolphins play in the waters surrounding Fripp Island. Even the endangered loggerhead turtle makes the island a nesting ground laying as many as 125 eggs in one nest. The forests here are covered with live oaks, palmettos, pines, flowering magnolias and oleanders.
The beauty of Fripp Island has been immortalized in scenes from Forrest Gump, The Prince of Tides and The Jungle Book. Explore these South Carolina island attractions first hand while staying with us in our rentals at the Fripp Island Golf & Beach Resort.
