Harbor Island is a barrier island off of St. Helena Island that contains just over 2 miles of beach/1400 acres of fun. There are playgrounds, basketball courts, volleyball courts, a community pool, tennis courts and more at no additional cost to you. Harbor Island does charge for car passes but with Summer Salt two are included with weekly stays.
The beaches on this beautiful island are very calm and relaxing. The waters are perfect for the little tikes just newly discovering the beach or the calmer crowd that loves to watch the dolphins play and the boats pass by. Right next door to Harbor you can find our state park, Hunting Island. This island offers waves for new surfers and body boarders. The lighthouse is still open to tour at a small price. Come out and see what all our area has to offer you and at the end of the day rest assure that Summer Salt will provide all your vacationing needs.
On our barrier islands, the tides are semi-diurnal, which means that our shoreline experiences two almost equal high tides and two low tides each day. At high tide, the water can swell to an average of 7-9 foot tides. At low tide, you may find that you walk out about 300 yards to get to the ocean. The beach also changes from month to month and year to year. Due to the shallow grade of our beaches, there are very little waves to speak of on our beaches, which is great for little ones. For the folks in your party that want to body surf, we have Hunting island State park open 7 days/week....Read more

What a wonderful Christmas!!! My husband and I returned to the South Carolina coast, from Scotland, to spend the holidays with our adult children. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Summer Salt was the perfect place to kick back and enjoy all the coast has to offer. The house was more than adequate for our family. Very comfortable, clean, beautifully furnished...the only down fall was the lack of curtains on the windows. The ability to block out the morning sun would have been nice.
Seaside Getaways were wonderful to work with..very professional and concerned with our comfort.
We loved our stay at "Summer Salt" on Harbor Island, and the service from Seaside Getaways was very good. From the moment we arrived, they checked in with us to see if all was ok and if we needed anything. We had a couple minor issues which they addressed right away.
The house was very nice - good condition and comfortable. Our teen daughter and her friend really enjoyed staying in the "dolphin room" on the top floor - with all its windows and ocean views.
We loved that we were right on the beach - the only complaint was that the walkway from the house didn't go further out - it sorted of ended in a ramp that was not the easiest to walk down, and the rest of the walk to the softer sand was a little hazardous with its growth and prickly plants.
The beach was so nice and peaceful - very private - it seemed we maybe saw only one other family on the beach while we were there. We saw dolphins every day - very close - which was very cool, and the loggerhead turtles were nesting too which was interesting to learn about.
Although there were not many big waves at our beach, Hunting Island (about 2 miles away) had plenty and we enjoyed visiting there as well. We also rented bikes and our kids loved being able to bike down to the community pool and tennis courts for more activities when they wanted a change from the beach. Overall it was a great trip and we would definitely return.
