The NeighborhoodThis is the perfect place to stay if you are planning a trip to Hilton Head Island. Just a few dozen steps to the wide sand of Forest Beach. A five-minute walk will take you to Coligny Plaza for delicious coffee, restaurants with a full array of diverse cuisines that fit every budget, Piggly Wiggly with the freshest, wild caught seafood in the area, bakeries, gift shops or catch a movie at Coligny Movie Theatre which shows great independent movies. By the way, St. Patrick's day parade starts right at the front gate. This neighborhood is also known for its nightlife and shopping. Walk down the beach and see the Tybee Lighthouse lit up across the Atlantic Ocean, and historic Daufuskie Island (only accessible by boat). There are lots of Bottle nose dolphins in this area of the beach because it is where the Atlantic Ocean meets Calibogue Sound and they love to feed here. There are free sand volleyball courts at the venerable “Tikki Hut” (part of Holiday Inn Beach House) which features live music and is fun for people watching! We have many of the major chain supermarkets including Fresh Market, and Whole Foods are on the island. Getting AroundIf you have a car, the island is only 18 miles long so it doesn’t take long to get anywhere! Hilton Head Island has been named a “Silver Medal Bike Friendly Community” and bike rentals are available year round and biking is a great way to see the island. Unlike any other beach I have seen, you can enjoy long bike rides on our flat beaches, especially at mid-to-low tide, which will accommodate beach bikes, mountain bikes, hybrids and even road bikes! You can explore the entire island using over 100 miles of well-maintained shared-use bike paths. You can bring your own bikes (we have multiple bike racks in our private parking lot) or you can rent bikes by the hour, day, or week. The bike rental companies will deliver and pick up the bikes so one less thing for you to do when you’re on vacation! There are also taxi services.
