Beaches on Hilton Head Island, SC
At the end of Burkes Beach Road, you’ll find a handful of metered parking spaces and a sandy path leading out to the Burkes Beach. Its location right next to Chaplin Community Park makes it one of the best beaches to visit on a bike, especially since that bike will get you down the sand pathway to the beach much quicker.
If you’re looking for the most popular beach on the island, this is it, Coligny Beach, located right at the end of Pope Avenue. Whether you want to bike, walk, ride a taxi or beach cart is all up to you. It’s one of the busier parts of town because of all the hotels, shops and restaurants in and around Coligny Plaza.
Even if the walk out to Driessen Beach is a little long, it sure is worth it. This beautiful beach on Bradley Beach Road is a nice escape from the everyday activities. In the beach park, there is even a playground with all kinds of fun things kids will love.
Fish Haul Creek Beach is another untouched beauty on Hilton Head. To get to this hidden gem, you’ll have to take a short trek through the woods (well, as woody as it gets on the island). The path that leads out from the parking lot takes guests to the beach, but not without a few stops on the way!
Just off of Folly Field Road, at the intersection of Starfish Drive and Sand Dollar Road is a sign welcoming you to Folly Field Beach. If you’re thinking about heading over to this beach, consider visiting in the early morning when the sun colors the clouds in the sky and the two small parking lots haven’t filled up.
Not only does Islanders Beach have a great sandy seashore to enjoy, but it also has a park with a playground, picnic pavilions, grill, restrooms and sand showers. It’s by far one of the best places to bring you’re whole family or a group of friends for a long day at the beach.
If you’re looking for a less crowed, quiet beachside escape then Mitchelville Beach might just be for you! Located at 124 Mitchelville Road, this beach is one of the less populated even during the busiest parts of the day. The trees inch up right up to the beach and there is some grass in the water that looks beautiful in the mornings and evenings.
