What does Palmetto Dunes have that other resorts donâ€™t? Three miles of sandy Hilton Head Island beach on the Atlantic Ocean and great weather that lets you take advantage of it nearly year round. We also give you plenty of ways to enjoy the beach, whether itâ€™s views from your Hilton Head vacation home or rental, dining options on the beach or activities from biking to surfing to keep you busy throughout your Hilton Head getaway.
There are plenty of access points to reach the beach, either from the residential areas as you pedal around or from our resort facilities. One of our favorite ways to enjoyâ€”and access--the beach is the Dunes House, which is centrally located Palmetto Dunes and open to guests of the resort. In addition to casual food and drinks with one of the best dining views on the island, youâ€™ll also find restrooms and limited parking. We suggest you call the Dunes Buggy for a free ride to the Dunes House!Â
Biking is also another great way to enjoy the beach at Palmetto Dunes. Get some exercise and enjoy beautiful views of the ocean at the same time. Try going for a ride at sunrise or sunset for a particularly inspiring experience. If you donâ€™t want to lug your bikes with you down to Hilton Head, you can rent them from Hilton Head Outfitters within the resort. Theyâ€™ll have them delivered direct to your home and villa so theyâ€™re ready to ride as soon as you arrive. Hilton Head Outfitters offers a range of bikes and options, and weâ€™d suggest trying their fat tire bikes which are designed for easier beach riding.Â
At Palmetto Dunes, you can also surf and fish at the beach. We offer surfing classes at our Hilton Head Surf School and surf board rentals from Hilton Head Outfitters. We also have everything a fisherman needs for a great day of fishing. Rent your rod and reel online and head into the Outfitters store just inside the resort to pick up bait or anything else you might need before you head out.Â
Or go for a more relaxed approach. Kick back, enjoy the sounds of the ocean and send the kids out to build a sand castle, but keeping a close eye on them, of course. Check out a few tipsÂ forÂ aÂ safeÂ tripÂ toÂ theÂ beach. Beach games are also lots of fun and we have some great beach game suggestions to keep the whole family entertained.
Whether youâ€™d rather dash into the waves, laze in the sand or cruise along the shore on a beach bike, when it comes to the beach at Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort we think itâ€™s pretty much perfect.
