A family resort designed to make lasting memories.

Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is located at the heart of Hilton Head Island, named the #1 Beach Town in the US by Parents Magazine. Palmetto Dunes’ three miles of sun-kissed Atlantic Ocean beachfront provide the perfect venue for three world-class golf courses, vacation rentals, a full-service marina, and an 11-mile lagoon system. The resort enjoys a well-earned reputation for creating unforgettable vacation experiences for the entire family. It’s no coincidence, as vacationers return year after year, many decide to make Palmetto Dunes their permanent residence.

The Palmetto Dunes story is the story of Hilton Head.

From our guests

"It is unpretentious but yet offers every luxury imaginable in a rustic, outdoorsy way. The tennis program is outstanding. The golf (I hear) is unparalleled. The food is pure Southern comfort. I really liked just being able to do things with my family. Maybe that meant riding bikes or hanging out at our villa or playing tennis together as a family. No matter what we did, it was fun! It was definitely a weekend full of memories."

"Our condo at 714 Barrington Park was fabulous! This Master Bath had a huge walk in Shower with marble. This was perfect for rinsing off the sand from the beach. I know, Girls/Moms, we go right for the Master Bath. The dual sinks were wonderful, too. The Master Bedroom was wonderful and comfortable. It had everything we needed and extra blankets and pillows. Linens. Our boys had a great room with Twin Beds and a Full Walk In Closet with a Fabulous Bathroom. The bathroom was beautiful and spacious. The laundry room was perfect and upgraded with washer and dryer."

"2014 was the 3rd straight year that we have returned to Palmetto Dunes for our family vacation. So much have we enjoyed our previous visits that we persuaded additional family members to join us this year and they did. Needless to say-everyone had a marvelous time and we continue to use and appreciate the various amenities that the resort offers. I truly believe that it is very good value for the money. Thank you Palmetto Dunes for giving our family such great memories."
