Just South of Beaufort

Port Royal is recognized as one of America’s leaders in small town New Urbanism.

Located just south of Beaufort, the Town of Port Royal lures with fresh seafood and preserved natural beauty.  Port Royal invites you to get to know the feathered locals along the trails of the freshwater wetland bird sanctuary, or climb to the top of the observation tower at the boardwalk and watch dolphins frolic in Battery Creek.  Visit the Cypress Wetland Park to get up-close with the area’s native plants and wildlife right in the heart of downtown.  Soak up the sights on the trails, boardwalk and pier.

The town is recognized as one of America’s leaders in small town New Urbanism and we aspire to continue to be the best place to live, work and play in South Carolina’s Low Country by preserving a superior quality of life for today’s residents and for future generations.

One of the most exciting opportunities in our region is the re-development of the Port of Port Royal with planned Commercial and Residential development. With 2.1 miles of waterfrontage on the deepest natural channel on the Eastern seaboard, the opportunities for this property are prime. The purchase includes 312 acres total with 56 upland acres.

Plans include a 225 slip marina, a deepwater hotel, high-bluff residential, a deepwater mooring field, multi-family residential, and a restaurant and retail village. A waterfront promenade and an extension of the Spanish Moss Trail will run through the property. The existing boat storage building on the property is open for business, leasing slips to people who can have their boats dropped in the water and hauled out with each use.
