Situated on a high peninsula pointing south and splitting the Intercoastal Waterway and Broad Creek lies Spanish Wells - one of Hilton Head's most exclusive and beautiful communities.
Once the site of artesian wells, where Spanish explorers stopped to fill their kegs before traveling on, the high land still contains many enormous live oak trees and indigenous vegetation from those earlier times. Originally the McIntosh Plantation, the property laid virtually untouched until the Spanish Wells community was born.
Today, Spanish Wells Plantation offers its 200 homeowners and residents a breathtakingly beautiful setting for living a special life with family and friends on the water. A contained and private plantation with no through traffic, the community provides a perfect location for easy access to the mainland, to the center of the island with its churches, schools, hospital and services and to the south end of the island with its shopping, dining and beaches. The community is remote, yet not removed. It is secluded, yet not out of easy reach. And those who live there would not have it any other way.
The truth is, there are many beautiful communities on Hilton Head Island. But there is only one Spanish Wells.
