The distinctive name comes from the towering sand dunes that once dominated this barrier island, and still is appropriate for the irresistible natural beauty of living spaces nestled among windswept beaches, sand dunes, and maritime forest.
Wild Dunes is a gated resort on the north end of beautiful Isle of Palms, featuring miles of pristine beach along the scenic Atlantic shore. Graced by two championship golf courses, a marina harbor, and upscale shops and restaurants, Wild Dunes offers a pleasurable tranquility that appeals to a variety of tastes. For the beach lovers, exquisite villas and condominiums provide fabulous views of the ocean and the most upscale luxurious details.
For those who like their recreation on the water, opulent homes overlook tidal estuaries where dolphins splash and channel bass flourish. And for the golfers, there are villas and homes with relaxing fairway views.
The security of the private community adds to the escapist atmosphere of this enchanted area, where the outdoor panorama beckons each day. Deer still graze in shaded forests that feature biking and hiking trails. Kayaking the tidal creeks is a popular exercise, and the island is close to some of the premier inshore fishing spots on the Carolina coast. For those who love the links, the Harbor Course and the Links Course are 36 wonderful holes designed by Tom Fazio, and Golf Digest rates Wild Dunes among the best in South Carolina.
Of course there is the dazzling six-mile stretch of beach that makes the Isle of Palms one of the most attractive locations on the East coast. Gleaming white sand stretches seemingly endlessly in front of dunes still wild with swaying sea oats. Foaming surf froths with sparkling water that fills the air with the comforting sounds as it rolls gently in and out on long, warm sunny days. Long sections of unspoiled beach at the Isle of Palms are haven for hatching loggerhead turtles each Summer, and florid wildflowers among the dunes attract migrations of Monarch butterflies each Fall. In the Winter, warm days are ideal for seeking out Starfish and Olive shells, as flocks of Oyster Catchers and Ibis swoop low along the sand. Spring brings pods of Dolphin surging through the churning waters just offshore, and in the distance, quaint shrimp trawlers offer a visual spectacle as they spread great nets along outriggers for the underwater catch.
The colorful nature of the lively beach display is enhanced on breezy day by the soaring wings of the kite board surfers, who harness sea breezes in a scintillating display of skill, speed and gracefulness on the water and in the air.
