Bordered by Bohicket Creek to the east and the Wadmalaw Sound to the west, the island’s only connection to land is a bridge over Church Creek to neighboring Johns Island. Wadmalaw has remained intensely rural over the years, with farming, fishing, and shrimping serving as the traditional occupations of its residents.
Wadmalaw Island is famed for its produce and abundance of u-pick farms. It’s also home to the Charleston Tea Plantation, Irvin-House Vineyard, and the Firefly Distillery.
