Hilton Head Island is one of South Carolina’s most luxurious beach destinations. Dotted with world-class golf courses, renowned restaurants, superb shopping and white-sand beaches as far as the eye can see, this resort island just right for relaxing.

In addition to its premier accommodations and scenic beauty, Hilton Head also offers an exciting cultural scene to explore. From the rich history of the Gullah people and authentic Lowcountry cuisine to wildlife viewing in the maritime forests of Fish Haul Creek Park, Hilton Head Island has seaside adventures for every state of mind.

Golfers from around the world are drawn to Hilton Head for its numerous pro-designed golf courses, including Harbour Town Golf Links at Sea Pines Resort and Oyster Reef Golf Club at Hilton Head Plantation. The island has a course for every preference and skill level, and there’s even miniature golf for those who aren’t inclined to tee off where the pros do.

The island is not only perfect for romantic getaways, golf weekends and outdoor adventures—it’s also one of the best family vacation spots in the country. After a day in the sun and sand, take the kids to get dressed up as pirates and embark on a cruise to hunt for sunken treasure at Pirates of Hilton Head. Or head over to the Coastal Discovery Museum to learn about the area’s cultural and natural history.

Friends, families and couples enjoy pedaling their way around Hilton Head on the island’s more than 50 miles of trails. Bike through Coligny Plaza, tour the trails of Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort or venture out on two wheels to eat like a local at one of Hilton Head’s fantastic restaurants.

It’s no wonder that Hilton Head Island draws vacationers to its 12 miles of sunny shores year after year. If you’re looking for the perfect place to unwind and spend time with the people who matter most, Hilton Head is the luxurious retreat you’ve been searching for.
