    #PDSummer Memories

    What an incredible summer it’s been at Palmetto Dunes. From fantastic family-friendly events and outdoor adventures to delicious meals and lazy beach days, there really is no better place to spend your summer than Hilton Head Island.

    This summer we got to see Palmetto Dunes through your eyes with our #PDSummer Instagram Challenge. For the past 14 weeks we’ve loved checking out your #PDSummer pics and watching you make the most of a vacation on Hilton Head Island, Travel & Leisure’s #1 Island in the Continental U.S.

    Congratulations to all of our winners, and thank you to every single one of you who entered this year.

    We’ve already shared some of our favorite #PDSummer entries, but y’all shared so many outstanding photos, that we couldn’t help but share some more!

    Beautiful views

    One thing is for sure: Hilton Head Island is a beautiful place to vacation. A number of your entries really showcased the beautiful views that are everywhere at Palmetto Dunes! Whether photographing our white sand beaches, golf courses, or lagoon, you captured our stunning surroundings expertly!

    If you’ve ever stayed at Palmetto Dunes, you know how breathtaking our sunsets can be. The photos you shared for our “Summer Sunsets” theme blew us away and we love how many of them captured the beauty of our beachfront, such as these photos shared by @glendamethvin, @mrdomie, and @palmettotides.

    Family Memories

    Palmetto Dunes is the perfect place for a family vacation. Our home and villa rentals provide enough space for everyone and are the perfect home base for a summer getaway to Hilton Head Island. All summer long our golf and tennis experts held clinics and lessons for family members of all ages and levels. Our friends at Hilton Head Outfitters provided bikes, canoes, kayaks, surfboards, and more, so you and your family could get outdoors and enjoy Hilton Head Island’s incredible natural surroundings.

What better way is there to commemorate your trip than posting spectacular photos for all of your friends and family to see?

    The Top Five Instagrams by Palmetto Dunes Guests: April Edition

    What do you love about Spring in lowcountry? Maybe it’s seeing the flowers bloom, or enjoying a leisurely bike ride on a warm day. Spring is perfect weather for golf and tennis, or to simply lounge by the pool. What we love about Spring is seeing your incredible vacation photos!

    We asked you to share your photos with us on social media by tagging them #PalmettoDunes, and you delivered! Here are five of our favorites from the month of April.
