      10 Places to Kiss at Hilton Head Island’s Palmetto Dunes

      Best Places to Kiss on Hilton Head

      While any beach is romantic, we think there’s something extra special here on the South Carolina coast of Hilton Head Island when it comes to lighting a spark, especially here within our beautiful beach resort. We’ve collected our top 10 places to steal a smooch on your next visit to Palmetto Dunes:

      1. Robert Trent Jones Course No. 10 - With its fantastic ocean views this is a great place to pucker up, especially if you or your sweetheart beat par! This gorgeous spot is also a popular location to get engaged and say I do!

      2. Neptune Statue - An iconic landmark on Hilton Head Island, we highly recommend getting a selfie of the pair of you in a liplock while this famous figurative sundial stands in the background.

      3. In a canoe - Head out on our peaceful 11-mile inland lagoon system for some precious alone time together by renting a canoe from Hilton Head Outfitters. Marvel at the natural beauty of the lowcountry and lean in for a kiss just when it couldn’t get any quieter.

      4. On a sunset dinner cruise - Hop aboard a romantic Hilton Head sunset dinner cruise leaving from Shelter Cove Harbour and enjoy a gourmet meal as the sun sets over the marsh. That’s sure to start some loving feelings!

      5. Ocean view villa - Rent one of our Hilton Head ocean view villas and prepare a romantic dinner for two (Dunes Catering can assist if you need a little help in this department). Then step out on to the balcony as the winds sweeps through your hair to make your move!

      6. At the beach - It’s tough to beat kissing at the beach with the sound of the ocean waves crashing in the background. Kick off your shoes and head for a barefoot walk down our 3-mile stretch of beach. Why not make it a game and kiss every time you see a dolphin?! Collect some shells as mementos of your romantic vacation.

      7. On the tennis court - Why not show your “love” during a tennis match? We recommend leaning in over the net at one of our 26 Hilton Head tennis courts. Try a night game with our lighted courts to kick up the romance level.

      8. Over dinner at the Dunes House - Is there a more romantic place to dine than overlooking the beach? Share a shrimp cocktail, some fish tacos and cheer your relationship over some frozen drinks.

      9. Dinner with a harbour view - Second only to the beach in romantic dinner options is a view of the harbour at Shelter Cove. Choose from several gourmet restaurants with a water view at Shelter Cove Harbour like ELA’s Blu Water Grille and Bistro 17.

      10. On a bike for two - Get some fresh air with your amour by renting a tandem bike from Hilton Head Outfitters. You’ll have to work together as you pedal throughout the resort as you cruise beneath palm trees and sweeping live oaks with hanging moss.

      Have you stolen a smooch on the island? Got any secret spots?

      To plan a romantic getaway to Hilton Head Island, consider our romance packages that combine accommodations, activities and spa services. Want to customize a vacation just for you and your sweetheart? Give us a call at 866-650-4130 and we’ll get it all set up!

      To make your stay in a Hilton Head vacation rental even more awesome, here are 7 services you can take advantage of that you may not know about:

      1. Bike Rentals - You probably knew you could get your Hilton Head bike rentals from Hilton Head Outfitters, but did you know they deliver them right to your door? Forget about carting your own bikes on a rack down to the island or walking over to the shop to pick up your rentals. Hilton Head Outfitters, located just inside Palmetto Dunes, will leave your bikes at your vacation rental before you arrive and then pick them up in the same spot when you’re done. Simple as can be!

Whether you’re looking for plated meals, a casual BBQ or an oyster roast, they’ll prepare it and clean it up so you can focus on enjoying your party.

      4. Take out from Big Jim’s Restaurant - If you’re not throwing a party, but just don’t feel like making dinner and want a night in, order take-out from Big Jim’s restaurant at the Robert Trent Jones golf course at eat in your villa’s dining area. The kid-friendly menu features everything from burgers and BBQ to salads and seafood.

      5. Grocery Delivery - Don’t feel like hitting the Kroger as soon as you arrive? Services like Cyber Valet Grocery in Bluffton will delivery your selection of groceries direct to the door of your vacation home or villa. Your family can relax and unwind while someone else does the grocery shopping!

      6. Babysitting - Want to have an adults night out but make sure the kids are entertained and safe? Try Hilton Head Nannies, which offers vacation babysitters and in-room nannies and sitters.

      7. Pet Boarding - If you’re not staying in one of our pet-friendly rentals, you may want to board your pet while you’re visiting the island. There are a variety of options including Evergreen Pet Lodge, Southpaw Pet Resort and All About Pets. If you need someone to stay with your pet in one of our pet-friendly villas, HIlton Head Nannies also offers in-room pet sitting!

      JetBlue Launches Inaugural Flights to Hilton Head Island

      Last week, the Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport celebrated in high style as JetBlue landed its first planes at the airport, making the area the latest addition to the airline’s routes. There will now be daily flights coming into and out of Hilton Head Island from New York’s JFK and Boston Logan airports, connecting from many other cities across the country.

      The addition of the airline is good news for the Lowcountry, as it adds more options for vacationers coming to the island. Already, JetBlue plans to increase the capacity of the airplanes flying into the area by 50% due to high demand, and other airlines have also lowered costs and added flights and additional seats.

      On February 13, the first flights flew into the Savannah-Hilton Head International airport and the area hosted a grand celebration. Local officials and guests enjoyed blue cocktails, visits with “Forrest Gump,” comments from company executives and more. Major media, including representatives from Travel + Leisure, Southern Living, New York Magazine and others flew in for the event. Take a look at our board on Pinterest chronicling the entire event.

      The Savannah/Hilton Head area has invested in a marketing effort to lure Northeasterners ready for a warm weather getaway to the Lowcountry area, which includes advertising in major outlets, as well as billboards atop taxis in New York City noting “Hilton Head is in full ‘swing’.”

      Palmetto Dunes has created a package for those looking for a great airfare rate to play world-class  golf in the Lowcountry.  The Blue and Greens package includes a $200 JetBlue gift card per person good toward airfare, as well as 4 days/3 nights in a resort view villa, 2 rounds of golf per person at our beautiful championship Hilton Head golf courses, 3-day Hilton Head bike rentals from Hilton Head Outfitters and 2 hours of complementary tennis court time daily at the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center.

      We’re so excited to have JetBlue in town and hope you are, too! Be sure to check their rates before planning your next Hilton Head vacation to Palmetto Dunes.

      Give us a call at 866-744-7558 to book the Blue and Greens package or for any other resort or Hilton Head vacation questions. Fly safe!
