Things to know about Hilton Head Island

GOLF, NATURE AND CYCLING ON THE BEACH Hilton Head Island is a stunningly beautiful island which simply invites you to relax. With over 20 golf courses which are beautifully embedded in the nature, it’s also a paradise for golfers. Houses and shops are aesthetically integrated amongst the vegetation which gives you the feeling of a nice and quiet place rather than a tourist hotspot.

The island offers beautiful, wide, white sand beaches where you will find people sunbathing as well as jogging or cycling. Yes, cycling- that's because the sand close to the water is very hard which allows you to cycle! A very unique and special experience!

Some of the best beaches include the most celebrated and popular Coligny Beach. The Mitchelville Beach (aka Fish Haul Beach Park) is a more secluded and more quiet place. The Driessen Beach on the other hand is where locals often head to in order to escape the tourists during the summer months.

A ferry day trip to the Daufuskie Island is another fantastic way to find some peace and quiet. There are some hundred-year-old Spanish moss oak trees and historic sites to explore.

The most populated part of the island is the southwest. When entering you have to buy a day ticket for $5. You will be able to see some stunning property as well as South Beach and Harbour Town. Here you will find a marina with restaurants and small shops and boutiques. It’s a really pleasant place and from the deckchairs you can watch the world go by.

The Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge lies on the border between the island and the mainland. You should really take some time to explore it - it’s a huge area and ideal for cycling around.
