We recently took a trip to this lovely barrier island. The northern end of the island is a managed wildlife refuge. However at the southern end of the island there is a 434-acre tract owned by the descendants of the slaves who once lived here. This is the cemetery they use. Very peaceful here...
There are cars on the island but you cannot drive to the island. The ferry makes the trip from the mainland two times a day.
The wind nearly blew us off the lighthouse bluff.
A tidal creek on the westward side of the island.
If you are into camping there is a great site near the beach. They have bathrooms and you are under a canopy of massive live oaks.
