Located in southern South Carolina on an island of the same name, Hilton Head is an upscale resort town, with vacation rentals scattered along the coast, surrounded by towering pines and live oaks draped in Spanish moss.
Voted one of the “Top Ten Best U.S. Islands” by Condé Nast Traveler, Hilton Head offers a number of natural, outdoor, and cultural attractions. The largest island between New Jersey and Florida, Hilton Head attracts beach bums to its white sandy beaches and boaters and water sport enthusiasts to its marinas. With over 80 kilometres of trails and paved paths, hikers and cyclists are well served here. Over two dozen championship golf courses and tennis courts provide opportunities for golf and tennis enthusiasts. Naturalists enjoy the flora and fauna on show at the Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge and the Newhall Audubon Nature Preserve. In the summertime, dolphins are often sighted along the shoreline, and dolphin-watching cruises can also be arranged.
Hilton Head is steeped in the colourful history and culture of the storied American South. From antebellum plantations to the annual Hilton Head Island Gullah Celebration, rich cultural heritage is always on show. The Island also supports art galleries, museums, and performance venues, in addition to award winning dining and shopping scenes.
Hilton Head offers an array of natural, outdoors, and cultural attractions, as well as a variety of facilities and rental accommodation options, and is easily accessible from the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport.+ More
