Plan Your Vacation At Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort

Seems as if there is a “day” for everything now. Some of these dates seem silly, but at Palmetto Dunes, we take “Plan for Vacation Day” — which in 2021, falls on January 26th — pretty seriously.

We want those who may have never discovered our resort, nestled in the heart of legendary Hilton Head Island, to remedy that in 2021. And of course, we also want our countless returning guests from around the globe to start planning their dream vacation at Palmetto Dunes for the upcoming spring and summer months. 

Top Ranked Resort on Award Winning Hilton Head Island

The first eco-planned vacation destination in the United States, Hilton Head Island regularly  generates impressive headlines and accolades. Travel + Leisure magazine has ranked Hilton Head as the “No. 1 Island in the Continental United States.” Meanwhile, in 2020, Condé Nast Traveler proclaimed Hilton Head No. 1 among its Readers’ Choice “Best Islands in the U.S.,” and No. 13 among the “25 Best Island Beaches in the World.”

Wrote Condé Nast Traveler: “Hilton Head — 40 miles from Savannah/Hilton Head Airport — is a firm family favorite, with a full 12 miles of wide, empty beach (perfect for long bike rides).”

With 2,000-acres of activities, it’s no wonder Palmetto Dunes has been named by Condé Nast as one of the “Top Resorts in the South” in its Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards for the past three years in a row. Be it golf, beach, biking, racket sports and a plethora or other outdoor activities, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort has you and your family completely covered for your upcoming vacation to Hilton Head Island.

Palmetto Dunes’ trio of championship golf courses — each distinctively different and uniquely appealing — were designed by three of the sport’s most renowned architects.

Tennis Magazine ranks Palmetto Dunes among “The 50 Greatest U.S. Tennis Resorts,” with more courts than anywhere on the island, year-round play, instruction available for all skill levels. Whether tennis is your game, or you’ve picked up the hottest new racquet sport in the country, the Palmetto Dunes Tennis & Pickleball Center offers the tennis or pickleball vacation of your dreams.

Endless Resort Activities for the Whole Family

Hilton Head Outfitters boasts the island’s largest fleet of bike rentals. They also have everything you and your family will need for the beach, from surf boards to beach umbrellas and everything in between. If getting out on the water is your thing, Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina — Hilton Head’s largest marina, located directly across the street from Palmetto Dunes — offers everything from access to deep water adventures, nature tours, fishing charters, boat rentals, and more.

Make yourself at home in Palmetto Dunes’ selection of vacation rental homes located just steps from the course, the beach or the courts. Villa rentals and condominium-style complexes provide outstanding resort amenities, while larger vacation rental homes provide your family the room they need and space they’ll enjoy.

And of course, whether you’re in the mood to savor a steak or sample a sandwich, dining at the Palmetto Dunes restaurants, cafes and grills conveniently located on-site will provide exactly what you need. Meanwhile, Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina serves up even more variety, with bars and oceanfront restaurants, and special events such as Harbourfest and Music & Taste on the Harbour throughout the year.
