Kiawah Island is a gated resort island with 10 miles of private, unspoiled windswept beaches and 10,000 natural woodland acres. Kiawah’s attractions are legendary with something for everyone in the family. For nature lovers, there are 35 miles of paved, leisure trails to jog, bicycle or explore the beauty of the island. Kiawah has five championship golf courses: Oak Point, Osprey Point, Turtle Point, Cougar Point and of course, the famous Ocean Course. These all offer a true test for the low handicapper while the average player finds Kiawah’s golf courses both enjoyable and a game-honing experience. Kiawah’s Ocean Course was the site of the 1991 Ryder Cup, the 2007 Senior PGA Championship and, most recently, the site of the 2012 PGA Championship.
Kiawah was ranked #1 by Tennis Magazine in its list of the "Greatest U.S. Tennis Resorts.” There are two separate tennis complexes on the island with both clay and hard courts.
Across the golden marsh and tucked away behind Kiawah’s abundant foliage are the island’s luxury accommodations located in two unique resort villages plus the Vanderhorst Plantation, a second gated community offering an exclusive area of private homes.
