Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Bloody Point, Daufuskie Island, SC
Bloody Point is located on the southern tip of Daufuskie Island in South Carolina. On one side of the point is the Atlantic Ocean, and the Mungen River is on the other. The point gets its name from a battle in 1715 during the Yemassee War. The Spanish and English were both settled in the area which the Spanish were uncomfortable with. This led them to encourage and reward Yemassee Indians to raid the English. During one raid the water around the point was red with blood, giving the area its name. The area is now home to several historical sites such as the lighthouse the Bloody Point Range Lights as well as the Silver Dew Winery, a winery connected to the lighthouse that was the first licensed winery in South Carolina.
