If your idea of paradise is miles of white sandy beaches washed by the warm waters of the Atlantic, you’ve come to the right place. Hilton Head Island is the ultimate beach-lovers’ vacation destination, offering 12 miles of irresistibly inviting shoreline on the Carolina coast. You’re going to love tickling your toes in our silky sand.

Pull up a beach chair and let the cool sea breezes and intoxicating sound of ocean waves rolling over the shore melt away the tension from a demanding day on the courts. Or unwind with a leisurely walk along the water’s edge. The entire 12-miles of shoreline are open to the public up to the high-water mark, so you’ll have plenty of room to stretch your legs.

Parking is available at several access areas, including Coligny Beach Park, Hilton Head’s No. 1 oceanside attraction. Located on the South End of the island, it features an interactive fountain with 26 synchronized jets, changing cabanas, a gazebo with rockers and Adirondack chairs, old-fashioned porch swings, a beach volleyball court and the Holiday Inn’s rockin outdoor bar, Tiki Hut.

During the summer season, you can rent Hobie Cats, recumbent bikes, sand trikes, beach umbrellas and chairs at the lifeguard station.

So, take off your shoes and enjoy paradise the way it was meant to be!
