Driving down Maybank road on Wadmalaw Island is like taking a step back in time. Other than the much small Dewees Island to the north-east Wadmalaw Island is the most undeveloped habitable area in Charleston. Between John’s Island, Edisto Island, Wadmalaw is home to working farms and the only remaining tea plantation in America; the Charleston Tea Plantation makers of “American Classic Tea”. Wadmalaw is also home to a distillery that produces “Firefly”, a sweet tea flavored vodka, popular throughout the Southern United States. If tea and vodka is not your thing then don't miss the only winery and vineyard in Charleston, South Carolina. Wadmalaw is also home to Irvin House Vineyards. They are open to the public and offer affordable and informative wine tastings.
Wadmalaw Island cannot be commercially developed, and residential real estate contain no high-density subdivision, only rural estates. One of the few communities is the town of Rockville. Homes range from modest fixers to estates listed in the millions, but they all share a rural tranquility of the classic Southern island life. If you’re looking for unspoiled lands not far from Charleston, that provide a calm and rural lifestyle, then Wadmalaw Island should be on your short list.
