Fripp Island Map
Two miles of smooth white beaches of Fripp might have borne the footprints of a legendary figure: Edward Teach, a pirate better known as Blackbeard. As legend has it, Blackbeard chose Fripp Island as his hideaway because its maze of creeks and inlets provided sanctuary from those seeking to locate him. You arrive at Fripp passing through Hunting Island. This secluded domain of tree-fringed beaches and semi-tropical woodlands once known as Reynolds Island hosts a five-thousand-acre state park. It offers more than three miles of the finest natural beaches on the eastern shore where abundant hiking and nature trails provide splendid opportunities for exploration.

Driving Directions: Once you leave Interstate 95 at Exit 42 follow Highway 21 which will end on Fripp Island, about 19 miles southeast of Beaufort, SC.
