South Sound is largely high-end residential, family-oriented and certainly an area worth exploring if you are looking for elegance and privacy on the quiet waters of the sound. This is an established, family friendly area with a blend of both affordable and luxurious properties enjoying convenient access to the schools, businesses, shopping and sports amenities surrounding George Town.
As a safe and upmarket residential area popular with both locals and foreigners, South Sound is a desirable area for real estate investors catering to tenants who are looking for the convenience of being close to the centre of everything while still enjoying a small town community atmosphere.
As well as a good selection of residential options, South Sound has numerous leisure facilities, including private sports clubs, a public dock and government boat launch, plenty of beaches, a boardwalk, kayaking, kitesurfing and an annual jet ski competition. The further east you travel the quieter it becomes.
South Sounders are aware of the ecological vulnerability of their part of the island and the need to protect the area’s mangroves and natural wonders from overdevelopment. The area’s beaches are an historic nesting ground for sea turtles and a local community group is active in preserving and protecting this ecologically important area.
