Do You Know…? Parking on Seabrook Island 

Do you know… where parking is permitted on Seabrook Island?

It is sometimes a challenge for property owners, renters, and visitors to know when and where it is allowable to park on the island. SIPOA Rules and Regulations addresses these questions. Property owners are responsible for their guests and visitors and must be sure to share these rules with them. The following is taken from SIPOA Rules and Regulations, §III E.1- 3.

  • Parking on SIPOA roads is limited to one side of the road.
  • Parking should always be in the direction of traffic.
  • On unimproved lots:
    • Parking is permitted on the right of way in front of the lot.
    • Such parking is only temporary.
  • On improved lots:
    • Parking is permitted in front of the lot on the grass portion with the permission of the owner.
    • Such parking is only temporary.
  • Parking at the SIPOA Oyster Catcher Community Center lot requires:   
    • An affixed Property Owner’s Entry Authentication barcode.
    • A Property Owner Pass.
    • An authorized pass for a special event.
  • Parking is prohibited:
    • On or within 50 feet of a traffic island or fire hydrant.
    • Overnight on SIPOA roads.
    • On SIPOA roads for beach access.
  • Parking for beach access is allowed only in designated areas close to boardwalks and in specifically designated areas at the Island House.
  • Parking in regime and association parking lots is limited to owners, renters, and guests. When using Boardwalks 7, 8 and 9, parking is not permitted at Atrium Villas (near Boardwalk 7), Beach Club Villas (near Boardwalk 8), Spinnaker Beach Houses (near Boardwalks 8 and 9), or Pelican Watch Villas (near Boardwalk 9).
