Come on. You know the real reason you want to go to Hilton Head is so you can lie on the beach and get your tan on. What beats relaxing in the warm sunshine, while the crystal clear ocean waves crash on the beautiful white sand nearby. That serenity is the kind of thing you can build your whole vacation around. Investigate these Hilton Head beaches to see which one is best for your vacation.

Coliginy Beach

The most popular beach in Hilton Head is Coligny—but don’t let that deter you as it is also one of the most spacious, easiest to access, and allows plenty of free parking. This beach really caters to daily visitors by providing outdoor showers, bathrooms, and changing rooms. They make it easy to please the whole family – a splash fountain for the little ones, and even lounge chairs who would rather just look at the sand than walk through it. Bring your own beach gear, or find it at the local shops nearby.

Palmetto Dunes Beach

If you are staying at the Marriott and need to relax after a day of golf, then head out to Palmetto Dunes Beach. You’ll find more privacy here, as this one is only accessible to hotel guests. Kick back at the oceanfront bar and watch the sunset with your feet buried in the warm, white sand.

Driessen Beach

Need a public beach where you can relax that’s a little further north on the island? Driessen Beach (otherwise known as Bradley Beach) gives you plenty of room and a beautiful view. While you can also enjoy playgrounds, a boardwalk, and picnic grills, you can also check out any of the many walkup restaurants waiting to take care of all your dining needs.

Sea Pines Beach Club

Maybe you’re locating your stay on the southwestern side of the island and want to test the waters over by the Calibogue Sound. Stay at Sea Pines, and you will have access to their private beach, with lifeguards, plenty of eating options, children’s activities, and private showers to finish up a great day.

No doubt you’re ready now for your beach vacation at Hilton Head. Decide how you want to relax, and you’ll find the beach that’s right for you. And if you want to shake it up, that’s okay too. We have bikes that can get you from beach to beach here at Hilton Head Bikes.
