Fripp Island Facts
Fripp Island is located at the very end of South Carolina Highway 21, heading east from Beaufort. The scenic drive crosses a series of bridges and islands including Hunting Island State Park. The beautiful drive through the moss covered trees welcomes you to the pristine marshlands and natural habitat of the local birds, fauna, and plant life of the coastal region.
Fripp is a private 3,000 acre island community surrounded by marshlands and the Atlantic Ocean. Since the beginning of development in 1963, the lush natural sub-tropical beauty and carefully planned amenities of Fripp Island have drawn permanent residents, vacationers, second homeowners and even movie makers! Scenes from “Forest Gump”, Disney’s “Jungle Book” and “The Prince of Tides” were filmed on Fripp.
