When I was first shown the Kiawah River property, I remember being told that it was probably the last great waterfront property along the east coast of the United States. A bold statement, but true in many ways.
You can’t help but be impressed by the huge majestic oaks covered in Spanish moss. I’ve seen deer, turkeys, eagles, alligators, and wading birds of all types here. A curious dolphin once chased my kayak as I paddled along the marsh.
One of my favorite spots at Kiawah River though, is the Sea Island Trail. It runs the perimeter of the outer pond—with some of the best vantage points for taking in those long views.
