Hilton Head Oceanfront Beach Picks? Here are the Top Spots
Visit just one Hilton Head beach? This is the place. Coligny is the most popular. It’s an active family beach and it’s almost required for a Hilton Head Island beach vacation.
Coligny Beach is located off Coligny Circle at the end of Pope Ave on Hilton Head’s south-end. Coligny is a lively beach – but it’s not at all private. Here you’ll see a mix of locals and visitors take advantage of the wide open sand and amenities.
Folly Field Beach
Folly Field Beach offers a bit quieter than you would get from our number one beach pick, Coligny Beach on Hilton Head.One nice thing about Folly Field beach is that it is a very short walk from where you park, to where the beach is.
Folly Field Beach is located mid-island at a major mid-island intersection of Highway 278 & Folly Field Road.
Our list of Hilton Head Island beaches ranks Driessen Beach as the third best, but put it on top of your list if your kids want a cool playground area.
This Hilton Head beach is located mid-island and has lots of parking – second only to Coligny – but the boardwalk goes on forever.
Driessen Beach is located mid-island off of Highway 278 at the end of Bradley Beach Road.
Alder Lane Beach
Alder Lane Beach is a nice find for a Hilton Head Island Beach vacation. It manages to be close to the action without being in the middle of it.
Just south of Coligny Beach, Alder Lane Beach is a nice alternative to the sometimes hectic pace that you’ll find during the season at Coligny. Alder Lane Beach is Coligny’s “little brother” with less of a crowd, a simple walkway, restrooms and vending machines.
