Palmetto Dunes Plantation
Palmetto Dunes is 2,000 acres of unrivaled beauty! This private oceanfront community on Hilton Head Island enjoys the reputation of having something for everyone's vacation desires. Unique to Palmetto Dunes is the meandering 11-mile lagoon system that can be enjoyed from a canoe or kayak. Scenic trails wind through the plantation's lush landscaping and can be enjoyed by bike or on foot. Three miles of sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean bound the East Side and the west is bounded by Shelter Cove Harbour, a village of fashionable shops and restaurants.
Palmetto Dunes is also home to three world renowned championship golf courses. The George Fazio, Arthur Hills and Robert Trent Jones courses provide an interesting mix of 54 of the most challenging and scenic holes on the island. The newly redesigned Robert Trent Jones course features one of the only oceanfront holes available. For the tennis enthusiasts, the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center features 23 clay courts and 2 Nova Pro Bounce courts. For boaters Shelter Cove Marina has the island's deepest yacht basin.

From oceanfront homes and ones that line the water-edged fairways, to magnificent oceanfront villas and luxurious condominiums overlookingyachts in the marina Palmetto Dunes has something for everyone.
Two distinct areas also make up this convenient mid-island location. Leamington, behind its own security gate, is the most exclusive section of the resort. The challenging Arthur Hills Golf Course is its centerpiece but there is also a recreational center with pool, baby pool, pavilion, and boat dock on the lagoon system as well as a Beach Pavilion providing residents direct access to the Atlantic Ocean. Directly across from the Palmetto Dunes entrance, you will find Shelter Cove Marina. Lined with quaint shops and great restaurants, the marina is a popular gathering place for families and couples alike.
