#1 Coligny Beach

Coligny Beach is by far the most popular beach in Hilton Head. The shoreline is scenic as can be and the adjacent beach park features a wealth of amenities perfect for beachgoers of all ages. Not only are there restrooms and showers but also separate changing rooms, plenty of benches and gazebos with swings to shade yourself from the sun. There's also loads of eateries just a stone's throw from the sand (think: coffee shops, ice cream shops and seafood restaurants) and should you forget an umbrella, you can rent that here in addition to beach chairs. What's more, parking is free.

Recent visitors, especially those traveling with families, love Coligny Beach. Along with the beautiful Carolinian coastal scenery, visitors praise the beach's clean facilities and nearby amenities. And although the beach is known to get pretty crowded during summer, some travelers note that if you walk long enough down the shore, away from the beach park, you can find fewer people taking up spots in the sand. If you are visiting during the summer though, be very wary of jellyfish. Sea Nettle jellyfish permeate the beach's waters from June to August or September. While lifeguards are equipped to deal with jellyfish injuries on the spot, it's stingray stings that are much more severe and often lead to a trip to the emergency room. Before getting in the water, ask lifeguards about conditions to avoid injury.
