Daniel Island is one of the newest and most popular Charleston neighborhoods. Daniel Island is a bit secluded and quieter than some of the other locales, with a very private, community feel. Daniel Island is more expensive than other neighborhoods, but it’s one of the only places kids can walk to school and there is a private luxury club for residents.

Distance To Downtown: 30 minutes


There are multiple community planned Parks throughout Daniel Island where homes are available. For residents interested in being close to the private club and central to the island, Daniel Island Park is popular. Homes are available on the golf course, with marsh views, with deepwater access, and more!

Daniel Island is still growing, and filling out it’s interior, but soon there will be no more space for new houses. If you’re looking for a new construction home on DI, now is the time to act!


Islanders can head to Family Circle Cup for concerts and events almost every weekend. Hootie’s Homegrown concert and Zac Brown’s Southern Ground music festival are some of the biggest events in Charleston, located on DI. The bar scene is limited, since the island is pretty small but there are some great options. Locals love Vespa Pizzeria for unique pizzas and craft beers and the Islander or Wasabi for seafood and a great happy hour after work. One of the great things is Daniel Island’s walkability and golf cart-friendliness so it’s really easy to get around to your favorite spots.

The Daniel Island Club also features many activities for active residents, including nationally ranked golf, a family pool, community center, tennis, as well as bars and restaurants.


Food choices are limited as well on the Island, but most residents take the quick drive to Mount Pleasant, Park Circle, or Downtown for more options. Our Daniel Island favorites are:

  • Vespa
  • Islander
  • Wasabi
  • Orlando’s Pizza
  • Ali Baba’s Deli
  • Daniel Island Club

Daniel Island also has a Publix grocery store, centrally located.


One of the biggest perks to Daniel Island is the proximity to great schools. Many kids are able to walk to school! There is every level of schooling available with the Daniel Island Academy early learning center, Daniel Island School for K through 8th grade, and the private Bishop England High School. Daniel Island School has been recognized as one of the best public schools in Charleston.


Daniel Island Club has community events every week. Families and neighbors quickly become friends, bonding over community events. Family Circle Cup is also always rocking in some way or another with weekly concerts from national acts, and the Family Circle Tennis Tournament every spring.
