Port Royal

Port Royal Celebrates 450 years of History

In the beginning, everyone wanted to claim this region. Enticed by its harbor - Port Royal sound is the second-deepest natural harbor on the East Coast. Spanish, French and British explorers struggled to colonize the area, which was an isolated seaside province dotted with Native American tribes.

From the Town of Port Royal's Website:  The Town of Port Royal is located between the Beaufort River and Battery Creek in the heart of South Carolina’s Low Country.  We take a tremendous amount of pride in our natural environment and the accessibility to that environment through our network of walking trails, community beach, boardwalk, and observation tower.  Our town is recognized as one of America’s leaders in small town New Urbanism and we aspire to continue to be the best place to live, work and play in South Carolina’s Low Country by preserving a superior quality of life for today’s residents and for future generations.
