Port Royal

Discover Port Royal, South Carolina....far from ordinary!

The town of Port Royal, located due south of Beaufort and just north of Parris Island. Port Royal is a large Lowcountry community that combines genuine southern hospitality with lots of local attractions that will appeal to coastal and outdoor lovers of all varieties.

Port Royal's name stems from the neighboring Port Royal Sound, which was initially explored and then named by French pioneer Jean Ribaut in 1562. 

Port Royal's Old Village is the heart of the town's historic district. The streets in this area are all named after the capitals of countries.  Paris Avenue, the main road that cuts through Old Village, also hosts regular Street Music events throughout the year. The area enjoys the annual Soft Shell Crab Festival in late April, a popular event for seafood lovers from all along the East Coast.

There are plenty local attractions to explore, starting with the Cypress Wetlands that features snowy egrets, wood ducks, great blue herons, and a variety of other migrating shorebirds via a number of winding trails. The Sands Beach, with its extensive long wooden pier and small sandy beach, is a popular spot to dig for shark's teeth and other seaside treasures. A tower is also located on site and presents exceptional views of the Port Royal landscape. The Lowcountry Estuarium rounds out an outdoor excursion, with a spacious room filled with exhibits and aquariums, and regular tours of the coastal region.

Water lovers will also find a handful of fishing charters that launch from the area and happily take anglers out on inshore and offshore adventures, as well as a number of winding creeks and open harbors that are perfect for a little sunset kayaking.
