3.)   Spend an afternoon at the beach!

Who doesn’t love a relaxing day at the beach? Daufuskie’s secluded white sand beach is the perfect place to sunbathe or search for shells, without the crowded shores found in similar areas along the east coast.


4.)   Check out our local artisan shops and galleries!

Daufuskie is home to many talented local artisans who are skilled in a variety of crafts. We highly recommend renting a cart and cruising around to visit the eclectic shops that are spread out all over our little island. Don’t miss The Iron Fish Gallery, Daufuskie Island Rum Company and Daufuskie Wine and Woodworks just to name a few of our favorites!
