On the Water
Riverbend puts residents in close contact with a rich tidal estuary.
Riverbend is located on the banks of the Okatie River, a tidal estuary where man and nature share the rich bounties of the Carolina coastal area. Home sites overlook the river, spring-fed lagoons and protected wetland areas.
Water activists head to Lake Somerset, a 20-acre fishing lake set within Sun City Hilton Head, to take advantage of its popular catch and release fishing.
The lake provides gorgeous views and remote controlled sailboats are a common site.
Elevated boardwalks and miles of walking and biking trails meander through acres of oaks, pines and wetlands, providing a protected playground that allows all to enjoy this fragile ecosystem. Send me more information about Riverbend!
