Get a-Head of the game on Hilton Head's Coligny Beach

If it's a relaxing vacation you're after, then you've come to the right place. Hilton Head Island is regularly named as America's Favorite Island, boasting 12 miles of buttery blonde sands, 24 golf courses, and a rich maritime history. At its heart is Coligny Beach, one of the most popular beach parks on the island. Get your South Carolina adventure off to the best start by booking a Coligny Beach vacation rental with ocean views. After a day of picnicking on the beach, or watersports, relax in 1 of the alfresco beach bars and restaurants at Coligny Plaza.

Things to do

Maritime, cultural, or natural history? Hilton's got it all

History in these parts dates back over 300 years to when English sea captain William Hilton's ship first spotted the island. A 15-minute drive from the beach is the Coastal Discovery Museum, which explores the island's cultural, maritime, and natural history. Situated in Honey Horn, it features a variety of fascinating exhibits, plus nature trails and a host of kids' activities. It also has a popular gift shop where you can pick up different local arts and crafts, including handmade sweetgrass baskets.


Find your own beach blanket babylon on Coligny Beach

As the most prominent beach on the island, Coligny Beach is regarded as the buzzy heart of Hilton Head Island. Its long blonde sands draw an active crowd, who come to sail, surf, or waterski, or to hike or bike the woodland trails that back onto the beach. Golf is also a big draw to the island, which has 24 golf courses, many with sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. After a busy day, kick back with a cold beer and watch the sun set from one of the hip beachfront bars.


Sun, sun, and more sun, it's peachy weather on Coligny Beach

Hilton Head Island is a year-round destination. Blessed with long, hot summers, and mild, short winters, it sees some of the best of South Carolina's weather. The busiest time of year is summer, when Coligny Beach vacation rentals get snapped up quickly. The beaches can see highs of 80-90 degrees in July and August, although the cooling breeze from the Atlantic Ocean makes it more comfortable. The shoulder seasons of spring and fall are equally as pleasant, with the warm sun lasting until late October. However, it's also hurricane season, so watch out for scary high winds.

Natural features

Hang out the bunting and spot rare rainbow-plumed birds

Stretching along the southern shores of Hilton Head Island, Coligny Beach has sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean. There's plenty for nature lovers on the island. Head to the Blue Heron Nature Center, a 10-acre park and trail through forested wetlands. It's home to a variety of birdlife and reptiles, including heron and duck, turtle and alligator. For more hardier hikes, head north to Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge, a 4,000-acre parkland with rugged trails through salt marshes and wetlands. It's a magnet for birdwatchers, who come to spot the rainbow plumage of the rare painted bunting.
