Resort Overview

Discover Our Resort's Award Winning Amenities

One of the finest resort destinations in the world, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is located at the heart of Hilton Head Island, named as the #1 Beach Town in the US by Parents Magazine. Its three miles of sun-kissed Atlantic Ocean beachfront provide the perfect venue for three world-class golf courses, a full service marina, an award-winning tennis center, and an 11-mile lagoon. Guests may kayak or canoe the lagoon, sharing the pristine, natural environment with 40 species of birds and fish. 

Harbourside, shopping and dining at Shelter Cove Harbour is a fun adventure, especially on Tuesday evenings during the summer when Harbourfest is in full swing. A wide array of boating activities operate out of the marina, including dolphin watching excursions, paddle boarding, sport crabbing and fishing. Among Hilton Head oceanfront luxury resorts, Palmetto Dunes enjoys well-earned reputation for creating unforgettable vacation experiences. 

Ever since it was envisioned and created as an ecologically-friendly beach resort in South Carolina, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort has been winning accolades for the scope, beauty, luxury and quality of its activities and amenities.
