Separating Savannah from the Atlantic Ocean are a myriad of islands which are home to a diverse population of wildlife and many quiet, small residential neighborhoods. Life in these communities is bound together by the dynamic, twisting creeks and rivers of the Intracoastal Waterway, making it the most serene and natural in all of Savannah.
The region includes Whitemarsh, Oatland, and Isle of Hope. Wilmington is the largest of the islands. As with every aspect of Savannah, homes in this area include a range of architectural styles dating back to the 1800s. The marshland islands are a special place with their natural beauty and tranquility. Long promenade docks with patios are iconic features of many properties, making fishing a way of life and watercraft an integrated part of day to day living.
