Nature, education, mysticism, sunrises, kayaking, friendship, and wellness. What do all of these have in common? They are all nurtured and catered to at Palm Key, South Carolina. Just minutes off I-95 and lucky visitors are transported to a nature getaway that relaxes the body and the mind.

A colony of eco-friendly, modern cottages, a meeting facility, and a dining room are clustered among moss-covered oaks and surrounded by hundreds of acres of salt marsh and wildlife. With days spent exploring the ecology of the area, kayaking along the banks of the Broad River, taking an art class from any number of artists-in-residence, arranging for a massage, checking out the labyrinth or blue bottle tree in the mystical park, or simply admiring the sunrise or sunset from your porch, Palm Key is a natural getaway.

Owners and hosts Judy and Em Rigg complete the experience by offering guidance about the area, kayak tours, nature walks, tasty family-style dining, and their friendship. Whether a romantic weekend away, multi-generational travel, a family reunion, or small business retreat, Palm Key provides the accommodations, facilities, and activities….and Mother Nature does all the rest.
