Kiawah Island is a barrier island with a maritime forest with a rich maritime habitat and 10 miles of beach. It is a private gated community developed to balance a residential community with the business development of the Island. The Town adopted a vision that states, “Kiawah Island is a residential community with a Resort surrounded by a unique and beautiful setting.” Tourism plays a very important role as part of the Town’s economic vitality and the Town supports businesses and facilities that in turn support Kiawah Island’s owners and visitors.
