Dogs on the Beach

Dogs are allowed on the beach on Hilton Head Island. Rules are as follows:

  • Are not permitted – Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Friday before Memorial Day through Labor Day
    Must be on a leash:
  • Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. April 1 through Thursday before Memorial Day
  • Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday after Labor Day through September 30
  • Must be on leash or under positive voice control at all other times.

Dog Park

Hilton Head Island has its own dog park. It is in the Chaplin Community Park, located just off William Hilton Parkway between Singleton Beach Road and Burke’s Beach Road. The park is completely fenced and “double gated” so you will be able to let your dog off-leash as long as it’s not aggressive towards people or other dogs.
