Planning a Beach Holiday in Hilton Head Island
Looking for the perfect island getaway along the East Coast? Hilton Head Island, found just off the coast of South Carolina, has established itself as a playground for vacationers. The town provides visitors an opportunity to partake in recreational activities like golf, tennis, and biking, and is also known for its marvelous, sandy beaches which provide a safe haven for both classic summer fun and relaxation. The list of things to do in Hilton Head is endless; but before getting carried away, here are some considerations which will help you book the perfect hotel or lodging in this Southern beach town.
Seas the Day with the Perfect Accommodation
To get the most out of a beach vacation to Hilton Head, it is worth looking for a hotel or alternative accommodation near the beach. On the eastern side of Hilton Head island, oceanfront hotels offer Atlantic sea views as well as direct access to the beach. Hotels and resorts on the eastern side are also closest to the golf courses, with some providing special offers or on-site facilities.
These beach hotels and resorts can be easily found by visiting trivago, where you can refine your search and see only the most relevant accommodations. You could even find a vacation rental for extended stays or larger groups. There are several oceanfront properties available, in addition to houses, condos, and apartments within walking distance of the famed South Carolina beaches of Hilton Head.
Not Shore When to Visit?
Located in South Carolina and just above the Georgia border, Hilton Head Island enjoys the advantages of semi-tropical weather year round. From June to September, visitors flock to oceanfront rentals and beach resorts to enjoy the Southern summer to its fullest. During these months, travelers on beach vacations crowd the waterfront and bring a new livelihood to the island. As so, advanced planning may be necessary, especially for visitors seeking extended vacation rentals in Hilton Head or a stay on a beachfront property.
Hilton Head is also known for several seasonal events, particularly its parades celebrating St. Patrick’s Day and Pride while attracting visitors to the island for a good party, in addition to a short stay on the beach.
Sea You at the Shore
From your waterfront accommodations, filling your days in Hilton Head with smiles will be a breeze. In addition to golfing, many visitors to the island enjoy bike-riding on some of the 25 bike paths in the greater area - it is even possible to ride along the beach, from one end of the island to the next! Bike rentals can be found in the center of town, but many hotels and apartments also offer the service to those guests interested.
Looking to get out on the water? Other adventurous activities to enjoy while visiting the area include kayaking and watching for bottle-nosed dolphins. Spotting the dolphins is easy, particularly for visitors who take the time to plan boating trips around the island. These boat trips are organized by local tourism and, while some focus on finding the bottle-nosed dolphins, they also provide an opportunity to learn about and explore the island’s great biodiversity.
