Charleston Condos and Homes For Sale On the Beach

A condo on the beach is the perfect way to get away—whether you are looking for a permanent home, a second house or a sound investment for your future. As the popularity of Charleston increases exponentially each year, there has never been a better time to find your perfect home amongst some of the most sought after real estate in country.

When you buy a condo or house on one of Charleston’s many beautiful beaches, you will be surrounding yourself with serenity, along with the rich history, culture and entertainment of Charleston just outside your door, or around the corner.

For nearby Charleston beach condos, consider a home on Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island or Folly Beach. Isle of Palms and Sullivan’s Island are known for their pristine real estate, with plenty of family friendly options for entertainment, dining out, and of course, relaxing on the beach. With beautiful views of cargo ships arriving to the harbor, the Sullivan’s Island lighthouse, tennis and volleyball courts, and live music, there is never a dull moment on Sullivan’s Island or Isle of Palms. On the opposite end of Charleston, and at “The Edge of America,” rests Folly Beach. This relaxed, casual beach provides condos all along the shoreline, with unlimited dining options for local seafood and beach bars that divvy out specialty beach cocktails, local beers and provide some of the Lowcountry’s best live entertainment.

If you are looking for more of a resort lifestyle consider Kiawah Island, Seabrook Island, or Wild Dunes

Looking for a more resort feel? Take a look at Wild Dunes, with its untainted white beaches, country club and professionally designed golf courses. Wild Dunes, located on Isle of Palms, is one of Charleston’s most private areas. With its secluded beaches and natural non-man made dunes, it provides potential buyers with privacy and tranquility, unscathed by large amounts of traffic or tourists.

Located just 30-45 minutes south of Charleston is Kiawah Island, a pearl along the South Carolina coast. The natural wildlife and flora will take your breath away, as the surrounding creeks, rivers and marshes sooth your eyes and soul. Kiawah also boasts world-renown golf courses, one of which, The Ocean Course, was home to the 2012 PGA Championship. If you haven’t already been sold, the beach itself will feel like your own private playground, as Kiawah remains one of the South’s best-kept secrets.

Some people who search for Johns Island or Kiawah real estate sometimes decide on the paradise of Seabrook Island... and with good reason. Located near the western tip of Kiawah Island, this area is often a favorite with golfers, equestrians and beach lovers.  In fact, many of these passions can be combined, like riding horses on the beach or exploring one of the two Championship Golf Courses, or playing tennis near the white sandy shore. You’ll find homes near private trails and miles of beaches on this beautiful barrier island. There are also a number of homes on, or near, the waterways and marshes that connect you to the ICW or the Atlantic Ocean.
