Hilton Head Island is a boot-shaped barrier island located off the Atlantic Coast of South Carolina. Lying on the Intracoastal Waterway, Hilton Head Island encompasses 42 square miles of low country geography. The Island's pristine natural environment offers a relaxing, hospitable atmosphere with subtle signage and no neon lights. Fertile salt marshes, networks of lagoons and creeks, forests of moss-draped oaks, magnolias, pines, palmettos and 12 miles of sandy beaches are interspersed with championship golf courses, tennis courts, fine restaurants and luxurious hotels, resorts and private villa accommodations.

Hilton Head Island offers an unusual number of cultural opportunities for a community its size, including Broadway-quality plays at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, the 120-member full chorus of the Hilton Head Choral Society, the highly-rated Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, the largest annual outdoor, tented wine tasting event on the east coast, and several other annual community festivals. It also hosts the Heritage Golf Classic, a stop on the PGA Tour which is played on the Harbour Town Golf Links in Sea Pines Resort. Everything is built in harmony with nature. No buildings can be higher than the trees and there are no billboards on the island. Harbour Town is essentially the centerpiece of Hilton Head. The Harbour Town lighthouse and Harbour Town Marina offer beautiful scenery of Sea Pines, Harbour Town Golf Links, Tybee Island, and Daufuskie Island.

Hilton Head Island is truly one of the nation's premier resort destinations. Located just off the southernmost tip of South Carolina and warmed by year round breezes of the Gulf Stream. The moment you cross the bridge onto Hilton Head Island, you immediately notice that itís a location like no other - meticulously developed to highlight its natural environment. The development of Hilton Head Island began when a young, visionary landscape architect named Charles Fraser laid out the master plan for the Island's south end community. The vision was to "lay lightly on the land" by building unobtrusive homes to blend into the landscape. Roads would wind around, not through, sensitive areas, and land would be set aside in its pristine state for the enjoyment of generations to come. The rest of the Island followed suit, creating a resort community like no other.

Even though beach access is private at many places, all Hilton Head beaches are public from the ocean to the high water mark. With concern about habitat for wildlife and our natural surroundings, Hilton Head Island has proven that a resort community can exist very nicely with its environment. Under a canopy of century old oaks and marshlands, this is the peace that living in the Low Country brings. We now invite you to become part of this legacy.
