We love Beaufort, SC and always stay on Harbor Island. One place we like to is The Chocolate Tree. The aroma is wonderful. I recommend stopping in and looking around, but take your time, there is much to see and taste.

Hands down some of the best chocolate I have ever eaten!! Very small place that is usually busy, but the ladies behind the counter are always helpful and fast. The sea salt caramels are my favorite! Love this place!
