Hilton Head is consistently voted one of the top ten beaches in the USA. We had 319 loggerhead turtles' nests on the beach this year, have seen 7 deer in the last week. Sightings of dolphins are an every day thing, and we had an eagle land on the beach out front to dine on a fish. If you like to fish, there is great fishing right out front (and a friendly great blue heron who often comes stand next to you while you fish (see my photos for proof!)
If you like to eat out, we have more options than you can begin to try in a week. From high end gourmet (Robert Irvine's 'Eat' geing a great experience) to the best (very best) burrito you will ever eat (at Amigo's - a strip mall dive with the best marguerite in town).
