As you pass through the gates and enter Shipyard Plantation, feelings of relaxation and serenity are bestowed upon all who visit. Named after the historical shipyards of the coastal low country, the tree lined trails, tranquil lagoons and peaceful beach are reminders to all guests of a simpler and slower time, not too long ago. Nestled in the heart of Hilton Head, you're just minutes from anywhere you want to go.
On your way to or from the beach, stroll past the Shipyard Beach Club where you can shower off or change before you head back to your first class accommodations. The 340 room Sonesta Hotel and Resort on Hilton Head Island is nestled beachfront behind the dunes.
One of Hilton Head's original planned communities, situated on 800 acres on the Atlantic Ocean side, this community is a mix of resort and residential properties. Shipyard Plantation is home to one of the top 50 tennis facilities in the country, the Van der Meer Shipyard Tennis Resort (designed by Billie Jean King), and the Shipyard Golf Club.
If tennis is your passion, you will enjoy access to 23 courts and a multitude of services. For the golfer, the three nine hole courses will challenge you while at the same time surrounding you with unparalleled natural beauty.
Slow down and enjoy the 12 miles of bike paths. Shipyard Plantation is sure to give you and your family hours of fun and relaxation. Don't forget to bring the camera!
