  • Seabrook Island Information

The island encompasses just over 7 square miles. This island oasis rests along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. While it feels intimate and remote, Seabrook is just 23 miles from world-renowned Charleston, SC.

The island is a harmonious mix of residential homes, vacation rental condos, and resort amenities. It is a wonderful retreat for families with dogs to enjoy nature and relaxation, without the hustle and bustle of many beach resort communities.

  • Dog Friendly Beach

Dogs are welcome on the beach at Seabrook Island. There are two beaches that allow dogs.  North Beach is characterized by the beautiful, large dunes that separate the waterfront area from the beachfront homes. The eastern end of North Beach is designated as a bird sanctuary. Doggies are not permitted here. It is well marked by signage.  When you enter the beach at boardwalk #1 turn right and enjoy a long, wide expanse of the beach area.

The second area of the beach is known as Pelican Beach. This beach starts past the Beach Club and carries west until the beach ends at the head of the Edisto River. This area is bordered by the river and offers a gentle shoreline. Dolphins are often frolicking in the water, close to the shore.
