April Hilton Head Island Weather

They say there’s no such thing as perfect, but April on Hilton Head Island comes pretty close. Warm weather, sunny days, and the lowest humidity of the year make this month the perfect time to visit our coastal island retreat.

With daily highs of 76 degrees and a few potential 80 plus days, April is the beginning of pool weather on the Island. Sun yourself poolside, take a refreshing dip and even hit the beaches for a walk or picnic.

Get outside and take advantage of the rapidly rising temperatures with a wildlife tour, historic bike adventure, or take in the beauty of sunrise on the beach. Remember to pack some warmer layers for night time excursions and or a day at sea.

With little more than a day or two of rain per week during the month of April, it’s a great time to experience Hilton Head Island. Intermittent showers mixed with low humidity and lots of sun provide the perfect backdrop for Lowcountry boils, sandy beach walks, and dinner under the stars.

It may not be exactly summer, but April sure does bring a lot of sun to Hilton Head Island. Visitors can expect an average 11 days of mainly clear skies, as well as a total of 277 hours of sunlight this month. Easily the sunniest month on the Island, the balmy temperatures make April the perfect month for any type of endurance sport or lengthy physical activity on Hilton Head.

Despite April’s reputation for showers, April on Hilton Head Island means the lowest humidity of the year.  Enjoy sunrise morning walks at 83 percent humidity, and be refreshed by 46 percent humidity during your early afternoon bike tour.
