About Fripp Island
The story of Fripp Island began in the early 17th century when Capitan Johannes Fripp, a sea warrior, defended Beaufort from French and Spanish invaders on behalf of the British. In return, he was given the island known as Fripp’s Island. Over the years, Fripp Island has remained relatively undeveloped and continues to be enjoyed by visitors year after year.
Today, Fripp Island is known as a relaxing destination with picturesque beaches, world-class golf, and endless natural beauty!
