Hilton Head Island and the surrounding region known as the South Carolina Lowcountry offers breathtaking coastal scenery. Sea, sand and sky surround you, and welcome you to enjoy pristine beaches, fresh and salt water marshes and wetlands, Spanish moss-draped live oak tree canopies, and friendly southern hospitality.

Hilton Head Island’s Natural Side

Hilton Head Island’s natural surroundings support an abundance of outdoor adventures for all to explore. Smell the salt air as the bright sunshine hits your skin, warming your soul and awakening your senses. With over 20 area golf courses, 100 miles (160 km) of biking trails, 12 miles (19 km) of sparkling, flat-sand Atlantic Ocean beaches (ideal for a stroll or bike ride), tennis, kayaking, fishing, horseback-riding, and dolphin-watching cruises, you’ll quickly discover the joy of the natural side of life.

A Fresh Look at Comfort

More than $200 million in renovations and updates have been reinvested into the Island, and visitors are reaping the rewards. The Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island reopened as a totally fresh, modern resort hotel. The luxuriously intimate 60-room Inn at Harbour Town at The Sea Pines Resort has also completed a multi-million dollar upgrade, with even more expansion plans on the horizon. Add The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa’s coastal chic resort make-over; the newly minted Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort’s comprehensive redo; the hip, recently renovated oceanfront hotel, The Beach House; and one of North America’s most lavish Five-Diamond resorts, The Inn at Palmetto Bluff; and you have a plethora of perfect seaside accommodations to rest your body, mind and spirit. 

Don’t Leave Without Tasting

Hilton Head Island’s local and sustainable culinary scene features a wide variety of cultures and tastes. Those wishing to sample the local fare should visit an Island restaurant specializing in Lowcountry cuisine, where dishes such as She-Crab Soup and Lowcountry Boil – a savory South Carolina blend of shrimp, hot sausage, potatoes and corn on the cob – capture the flavor of the region.

A visit to Hilton Head Island also would not be complete without sampling even more of the famous local seafood, including shrimp, sweet blue crab and briny oysters.

History Happened Here

With significant Spanish, French and English explorer history dating back to the 1500s, the region offers travelers a rich and varied cultural scene.

Gullah refers not only to a language but also to a culture and a still vibrant community supported by the courage and the heritage of its forefathers. Brought to America as enslaved people, the Gullah remains one of the most culturally distinctive African American populations in the U.S. This profound story of the Gullah and freedom awaits your exploration here on Hilton Head Island and throughout the Lowcountry region.
