With abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation, pristine salt marshes and rivers, and natural surroundings rich with wildlife, there is something magical about the 32 miles of riverfront property and 20,000 acres that together make Palmetto Bluff one of the most sought-after communities in the Bluffton area. Resort-like amenities, such as hiking, golf, waterway sports, fishing, social opportunities, and more, make this community feel like both a retreat and a luxurious residence.

Early French and English settlers influenced the architecture of this charming Lowcountry community.
