When we first moved to Spanish Wells back in the 80's everyone told us we were crazy. It was 13 miles from the Sea Pines Circle and no young families lived there. But now it is one of the most popular waterfront communities on Hilton Head. Plenty of young families, close to the South end of the island via the cross island expressway, and great deep water access make this a very desirable area to buy a home. Spanish Wells is a peninsula that is located on the intracoastal waterway and at the mouth of Broad Creek. Deep water homes with private docks line the perimeter of the high bluff. The neighborhood is filled with large live oak, palmettos and magnolia trees and the home sites are large. If you are looking for a home on deep water that is not in a gated community then Spanish Wells should be on you list to visit.
