Your Island: Hilton Head Island
Hilton Head Island Once Again Voted “the Best of the Best”
Thanks to our amazing visitors and local residents, Hilton Head Island has become an award-winning destination. Recently named 2019's "South's Best Beach Town" by readers of Southern Living, the accolades for Hilton Head Island tell a great story: there truly is something for everyone here in the coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina.
Hilton Head Island was voted the "#1 Island in the U.S." in the 31st Annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, as well. Chosen by over 429,000 readers who submitted millions of ratings and tens of thousands of comments, the Readers’ Choice Awards represent the very best of destinations in the world—and this is the second year in a row we have won this prestigious award.
In addition to this accolade, Hilton Head Island was also recognized in 2018 as the "#1 Island in the Continental U.S." What makes this even more thrilling is that this is the third consecutive year that we have been honored with this award by readers of Travel + Leisure Magazine.
To all of you who voted for us, thank you very much. We can’t wait to see you again! And for those of you who have yet to visit America’s Favorite Island, we invite you to discover for yourself our many award-winning experiences, activities, and attractions.
