When visiting Sea Pines Plantation take time to check out the Baynard Plantation Ruins. If you are not familiar with "tabby" ruins and island history you do not want to miss. Access by bike or car.

I had no idea this archaeological ruin was in Sea Pines. I did a little research and decided to explore. The history of the ruins was accurately and nicely displayed on signboards. What was left of the plantation house and slave quarters was very interesting...More

We loved visiting these ruins but the ride to the area was as much fun! We didn't realize you have to pay $6 to access this are of Hilton Head Island but it was a beautiful area. The homes, golf courses, and water were prestine.

The ruins are just 4 small areas, but it was worth visiting. I'm not from around here, so I didn't know what tabby was. Learned a few things. There's also a geocache there if you do geocaching. We biked to this site from our rental.

It was a nice walk to this site. Ruins of a plantation house and historical markers to tell you what you are looking at.

Bring your imagination as there isn't that much to see. Tabby foundation ruins. Fun to include as part of biking around Sea Pines (it's between South Beach and Harbour Town).. Not much shade in summer.
