Savannah’s North Pole – An Adventure at Bloody Point
Having recently (re)opened a beautiful retreat just above Savannah, our friends at Bloody Point Golf Club and Resort invited us to visit for a day of adventure on the island to experience all they have to offer our Savannah visitors.
The day began with a boat ride from Savannah Bend Marina on the Bloody Point Water Taxi, a lovely and quick 30 minute ride ending at the Bloody Point dock, which they have cleverly named “Savannah’s North Pole.” Luxury golf carts built for 10 picked us up, and it was evident that we were somewhere very unique as we took in the view of the historic surroundings, the naturally beautiful course and the friendly faces greeting us.
After taking a quick look at the Bloody Point Cemetery (circa the Plantation era) and seeing our first glimpses of the serene golf course, we had lunch at the Eagle’s Nest restaurant. Home of the best fried pickles I’ve ever had, everyone enjoyed their meal of salads or sandwiches as we learned more about the resort’s renovation and plans for the future.
From the coastal inspired Osprey Cottage accommodations to a lush, naturally beautiful golf course, it’s a getaway spot where you can relax, enjoy nature, work on your tennis game or simply lounge by the pool or on the beach. You may even be able to see tiny sea turtles hatching on their journey to the sea, right in front of the resort!
Visiting Daufuski island, only accessible by boat, gives you the opportunity to tour by golf cart, checking out the historic stops through the island, learn about the Gullah community, the original buildings, school and Billie Burn museum that have stood the test of time.
Spending the day on Daufuskie Island at Bloody Point Golf Club and Resort was eye opening to what a wonderful getaway spot it is, whether you’re looking for a quiet retreat away or an adventure on island time, this is one Savannah secret we don’t want to keep to ourselves!
