Coligny Beach Park, Hilton Head Island

South Carolina, NC, USA


Coligny Beach Park is the most popular beach on Hilton Head Island. There's a fantastic vibe here, with people strolling the shore, and others sitting in groups on the soft white sand enjoying the sweet sea air. This is by far the nicest beach I've seen in South Carolina, with prettier sand than most. 
Loud music blares from Tiki Hut, which is packed with people, but unfortunately the music doesn't match the scene- it should be Hawaiian music by Iz or something that matches with the waves rolling in.
As you enter the beach park, there are two rows of swinging benches facing the path, plus a splash pad. Very cute! Many people bike ride on Hilton Head Island so you will see bike riders EVERYWHERE! Rent bikes at Forest Beach Surf and Cycle to get around this area. If you want to bike the Sea Pines area, you will need to rent bikes inside Sea Pines.
After some fine hours at the beach, walk over to Coligny Plaza Shopping Center where you can eat outside enjoying good live music at The Sandbar, or try another restaurant. The spaghetti smelled amazing at It's Greek To Me, but beware the copious amounts of garlic. Grab an ice cream at The Ice Cream Cone. 
Ride the bike path west along Forest Beach Drive under the shade of gorgeous trees draped with Spanish moss. In spring, azaleas add bursts of color everywhere. It is truly gorgeous! The nicest biking I've ever done!
Other nice beaches on the island are Burkes Beach and Bradley Beach.
Another great place to visit on Hilton Head Island is the Coastal Discovery Museum, where you can walk their gorgeous grounds on boardwalks over the salt marsh.
On Hilton Head Island, kids will also love climbing the small lighthouse at Harbour Town.
