A Weekend to Remember: Fourth of July at Seabrook
Even though our Fourth of July festivities looked a little different this year without our annual 5K Walk or Run, parade, or fireworks show, the Seabrook Island community still had a blast celebrating our holiday weekend! Seabrookers spent the day lounging along miles of South Carolina’s best beaches, swimming in the gentle waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and soaking up the Lowcountry sunshine at our two oceanfront, resort-style pools at the Seabrook Island Beach Club. Our 2020 Independence Day agenda also included a socially-distant, drive-by Fourth of July parade and a Mailbox Decorating Contest, sponsored by the Seabrook Island Garden Club.
Whether you joined in on this year’s festivities, or you are planning to join in the fun next year, here are a few shots we snapped from this past weekend, truly one to remember!
An Independence Day at the Beach
The weather was perfect, the waves were relaxing, and the sun was shining. Seabrook’s beaches were a socially distant paradise this past 4th of July. We are so thankful for the residents and community members who stayed safe and healthy while celebrating. Thanks for protecting each other while enjoying our shoreline!
The Newly Opened Pool Served Up Fun in the Sun
Our highly anticipated pool renovations at the Seabrook Island Beach Club were put to good use on Saturday as Seabrook families enjoyed a relaxing day by the water. A day full of the coastal sun and a refreshing, salty breeze we think was a holiday well-spent! The Seabrook Island Beach Club’s two pools gave guests a chance to take in the beautiful Atlantic Ocean waterscape on our spacious, oceanfront sunbathing decks. There was even a perfectly picturesque sunset to take in at the end of the day!
After taking a dip in the pool, our Seabrookers were able to take a few short steps to get to the luxurious beach with its soft sand and gentle currents. The Pelican’s Nest, Osprey Cafe, and the newly debuted Cap’n Sams Poolside Bar & Grill were all open and ready for Fourth of July goers who were craving some delicious cuisine or a chilling beverage.
Though we had to maintain some space between us this year, the Seabrook community is as tight-knit as ever. We thoroughly enjoyed spending our holiday together – thank you to all who came out!

With all of our beach club amenities being just a short drive or bike ride away, you and your family won’t run out of things to do.
Our unique barrier island features 3.5 miles of luxuriously pristine South Carolina beaches including North Beach, the perfect place to watch a radiant sunrise or lounge in a gentle tidal pool, and Pelican Beach, also known as Sunset Beach for its vivid evening skies.

Seabrook Island is also recognized as an Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary, brimming with distinct Charleston wildlife like the endangered loggerhead sea turtle. Some of our other favorite neighbors are the bottlenose dolphins, who are frequently spotted strand feeding along Seabrook’s coast. This extraordinary phenomenon is something that can only be observed in a few other places. Not to mention, our island hosts more than 80 different species of birds including bald eagles, egrets, pelicans, osprey, roseate spoonbills, and more. Our coastal haven community is dedicated to preserving our natural resources and the unique beauty of Seabrook Island, SC, so that our future generations can explore, too.
