About the Beaches on Hilton Head

According to Travel and Leisure Magazine, Hilton Head Island beaches rank among "the most beautiful in the world". Most of the beaches are backed by natural dunes and homes instead of the towering high rises you find on other beaches. Nature is a top priority on our oceanfront so staying off the fragile dunes, leaving the sandollars and other creatures alone and keeping lights out at night so that endangered Loggerhead Turtles can breed are town ordinances.

The entire beach is public, from the ocean to the high water mark. Access to the beach, however is often private. The following are some of the beach areas and the amenities they offer.
