Harbor Island Real Estate

Harbor Island Real Estate;  Harbor Island is a private gated homeowner’s island considered an oceanfront barrier island. It has 2 ½ miles of pristine beach overlooking St. Helena sound, the Atlantic Ocean, the Harbor River, Johnson Creek and thousands of acres of salt water marsh. The PUD is small approximately 600 total homes but includes a beautiful homeowner’s pool on the marsh, tennis courts, exercise rooms, shops, and a crabbing dock. There is 24/7 security and a gated entrance.

Harbor is an important bird coastal area. During the course of a year, you may find over 200 species of birds. Five fresh water lagoons located on Harbor provide nesting areas for thousands of wading birds and our sandbars host nests for several threatened species. In spring and fall, our island is a staging area for thousands of birds gathering for their migratory flights.

From April to June thousands of Horseshoe crabs come ashore to lay their eggs at high tide under a full moon. These eggs provide much needed food for birds during spring migration. From May to September, our beach is a nesting site for endangered Loggerhead turtles and has a volunteer group that helps protect and maintain important state records.

While Harbor Island is a prime spot for nature lovers, our 3-½ miles of pristine beach and our swimming pools, tennis, basketball and volleyball courts offer opportunities for traditional activities. Water sports of all kinds are available. Fishing off the beach and crabbing in our tidal creeks or from the crabbing dock are very popular
