Discover the Island

Hilton Head Island holds a special place in the hearts of people around the globe. Located off the southernmost point of South Carolina and warmed year-round by the Gulf Stream, Hilton Head Island must have been created for relaxation and rejuvenation. Its forty-two square miles are lapped by the gentle waters of the Atlantic, edged with breathtaking ivory beaches and surrounded by fertile salt marshes of spartina grass.

And a wide range of beautiful hotels, homes and villa accommodations. Enjoy an afternoon eco-adventure or historic tour, or take in a show sponsored by our active arts community on Hilton Head Island. Year-round festivals bring you the best of the Island, or you might prefer a relaxing afternoon in one of the Lowcountry area museums.

Imagine yourself on a breeze swept beach on Hilton Head Island. The sun gently warms the sands. A pelican swoops down from a perfectly blue sky, hungry. Terns skitter across the slowly receding waterline. A family bikes along the beach, laughing. Treasure hunters stoop to search for shells. Overhead a kite loops and soars and loops again. A child smiles. You smile. This is the home you’ve been dreaming of. This is Hilton Head Island. And it’s everything you imagined. Welcome.
