Edisto Island is the southernmost part of Charleston County, about an hour from the historic downtown peninsula. Situated off Highway 17 past rural West Ashley, the area is one of the most sparsely populated sea islands in the county. It has a rich history as the home of Native Americans and, later, many plantations.
Today, the area is rustic but self-sufficient with a mix of agriculture, tourism and business services driving its economy. Although small, Edisto Island has a public elementary school, grocery stores, doctors’ facilities, seafood restaurants and gas stations — everything residents need. Real estate consists of multi-acre wooded and waterfront lots, practical family homes for under $300,000 and luxury properties over 3,000 sq. ft. starting at $500,000.
