Goat Island is an island located between Mt. Pleasant and Isle of Palms, South Carolina, United States, on the Intracoastal Waterway. It is one of the smallest islands of the region, being only as large as a neighborhood street. There is another Goat Island in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, that is approximately 20,000 square feet. It is called Goat Island because every spring a man named Bubba Love (a local celebrity) and few friends place some goats on the islands. Tourists walking along the Marshwalk (a boardwalk that overlooks the marsh) can watch the goats. Goat Island has added peacocks to the population.
