Wild Dunes Resort is a gated golf and beach resort that is located on the northern tip of Isle of Palms, SC. Real estate in the community features lush tropical vegetation, spectacular marsh views, pristine private beaches and homes with golf course views. The 1,600-acre oceanfront haven is wedged between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean and features two miles of untouched beaches. Wild Dunes Resort offers plenty of lodging and amenities, which are perfect for family get-togethers, meetings, golf outings, as well as beach vacations. Homes range from classic cottages to marvelous oceanfront mansions. The community has numerous swimming pools, fine dining restaurants, casual cafes, bike paths, tennis courts, and a fitness studio. Of course, its prize possession is the two championship golf courses, both designed by golf legend and architect Tom Fazio. The Links Course, which was recently renovated, features rolling fairways along coastal terrain, natural foliage and unobtrusive views of the Atlantic Ocean. A challenging course situated along the Intracoastal Waterway, the Harbour Course perfectly marries salt marshes, tidal creeks, and palm trees to its manicured greens. For security, the 24-hour manned guard gate keeps residents and visitors safe, and the gate code access for individual neighborhoods within the development provide an extra layer of protection.. Managed by Destination Hotels and Resorts, the club offers onsite amenities that include rental lodging, a top 10 ranked tennis facility, meeting facilities, a children’s recreation program, and - of course - the coveted golf courses. Additionally, the resort hosts numerous seasonal events and activities that are fun for residents and visitors.
Families in Wild Dunes are pleased to have their children attend Sullivan’s Island Elementary School, a math, science, and coastal environment magnet school that provides hands on learning and studies on the beach. Students progress to Laing Middle School of Science and Technology, a brand new school that features kinesthetic classrooms and a plethora of specialized courses. After graduating middle school, students transition to Wando High School, a school that continuously receives awards for its academic and athletic strengths. Private school options in the area include Palmetto Christian Academy, Coastal Christian School, and Christ our King.
Wild Dunes is only 20 minutes away from the grace and allure of historic Charleston, which is well known for its remarkable restaurants, splendid shops, delightful galleries, protected landmarks, famous cultural events, and lively nightlife. However, residents can stay on the island and enjoy local favorite spots such as the Windjammer, Banana Cabana, and The Boathouse.
