The waterfront community of Paulkie Island is one of Beaufort’s best-kept deep-water secrets.
Located just west of Beaufort, Paulkie Island is off the beaten path, without being totally out of the way. If you have read any of Pat Conroy's fiction, you know what I am talking about.
Paulkie Island has a similar feel to communities like Coffin Point and Land's End, on St. Helena Island, in that you are unlikely to stumble across these communities by accident. You almost have to know where you are going to get there.
And this is part of what has helped Paulkie Island maintain it's charm. It is a quiet, waterfront neighborhood, with a private boat launch and boat dock which can be used by residents. And yet, Paulkie Island is within short driving distance to downtown Beaufort.
For years, Paulkie Island was one of those wonderful little neighborhoods which are located on dirt roads, after the pavement ends. Well, the pavement extends into the neighborhood now, and local residents seem excited about it.
Recent homes have sold in the Paukie Island Community in the $200,000 to $300,000 range.
Because of it's location west of Beaufort, Paulkie Island might be an ideal location for a second home, or vacation home. You've got the water, boat launch, tranquility, and easy access to downtown Beaufort.
Paulkie Island is located about 20 minutes from Historic Downtown Beaufort.
