experience island traditions

Daufuskie is home to approximately 300 full-time residents. Among them you will find award- winning and talented artists, entrepreneurs, woodworkers, winemakers, chefs, historians, farmers, sculptors, potters, community organizers, musicians, and more. It’s an island where people wave to you on the road, and stop to help you if you’re lost. The best way to explore the island is to get out and meet the residents at some of the local businesses we have described here. But beware…you may end up like many of the islanders and decide you’ll never leave! Have fun and be sure to tell them Melrose sent you!
