Thanks to our amazing visitors and local residents, Hilton Head Island has retained its reputation as an award-winning destination.

This October, Hilton Head Island was voted the "#1 Island in the U.S." in the 32nd Annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Chosen by 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 third year in a row we have won this prestigious award.

In addition to this accolade, Hilton Head Island was also recognized in 2019 as the "#1 Island in the Continental U.S." What makes this even more thrilling is that this is the fourth consecutive year that we have been honored with this award by readers of Travel + Leisure Magazine.

Closer to home, we were recently named 2019's "South's Best Beach Town" by readers of Southern Living. Our 2019 accolades tell a great story: there truly is something for everyone here in the coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina.

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. From golf getaways to weekend road trips to family vacations, a world of treasured moments and unforgettable memories are waiting for you on Hilton Head Island.
