Johns Island

The largest of South Carolina’s islands, Johns Island is home to multitudes of wildlife species and abundant flora. With its proximity to downtown Charleston and scenic surroundings, the population of Johns Island is fast-growing with the development of several high-density neighborhoods and a burgeoning food and beverage scene to match. Buyers with deeper pockets are still able to find properties with lots of acreage, water access, or equestrian accommodations. Johns Island is also the gateway to two popular resort communities, Kiawah and Seabrook Islands.
