With three miles of expansive beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean and a unique lagoon system that winds its way through three spectacular golf courses, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is the ideal venue for Hilton Head water sports. Rent a canoe, learn how to use a kayak, take surfing lessons, go water skiing or fishing - there are more choices here at our Hilton Head Island beachfront resort than at any other location in the Southeast.
There is, quite simply, more to do, more to enjoy and more to learn and experience with a Palmetto Dunes vacation.
One activity Palmetto Dunes guests simply love is the opportunity to explore the coastal waterways around Hilton Head Island on a 20-foot pontoon boat that accommodates up to 12 passengers comfortably. Because the island's winters are relatively mild, year-round rentals are available at Shelter Cove Marina. Rates include the cost of fuel. And 6% S.C. sales tax will be applied to the total. $20 property insurance is optional. Reservations are required.
