Roads exist but frequently the pavement ends marking the beginning of sandy lanes canopied with Spanish moss covered oaks.

" I am sitting here on our last day on Daufuskie and wanted to thank you so much for your recommendation to visit the island.  Laura and I have thoroughly enjoyed our time here and are sad that we have to leave tomorrow.  We explored the island w/ our cart, visiting Fappys, the Dirt Road Diner, a short cut on Jake Washington road?, saw the eagle's nest, saw many many dolphin up close, a sea turtle, horse shoe crabs on the beach, and are looking forward to great food and live music at marshide mama's tonight.  But of everything here, we have enjoyed just the peace and quiet of the island itself.  Our dog has never been happier as he has raced along the beach all week, trying to outrun the wave breaks.  The people we have seen and met, which aren't many, have all been incredibly friendly.  We are definately interested in a return visit to the island."
