Enjoy Marsh Views at Their Very Best

Fripp Island is home to a collection of colorful and lush salt marshes that are found just between the saltwater and land masses. These marshes host rich coastal ecosystems and often include tidal creeks throughout. Many Fripp Island marshes are found on the back side of the greater island and experience high tides twice daily in a space filled with cordgrass, fish, and birds. While there are many nature tours offered through the marshes, they also prove to be an amazing place to take in a sunset or two. Peaceful and serene, the salt marshes provide an idyllic destination for savoring the sights of changing sky and watercolors each evening. Whether you head out independently or link up with a tour group, this is a sunset watching experience to make sure you enjoy at least once while you’re here.

Just as inspiring as the sunset on Fripp Island is the sunrise you can enjoy at the start of each day. A picture-perfect place to take in a sunrise while you’re here is the beach located opposite the marina. There’s nothing as refreshing as starting the day early, strolling the sand, looking for shells, and waiting for the sun to rise. It’s bound to be a beautiful moment, and well worth having your camera in hand for.
