Hilton Head, SC

Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort is a 2,000-acre resort destination on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, bounded by Atlantic Ocean beaches on one side and a sheltered intracoastal waterway marina on the other. Palmetto Dunes was named No. 3 Best Resort in the South in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2017 Readers’ Choice Awards and to the Top 25 World’s Best Family Getaways by Travel + Leisure.

The resort features vacation home and villa rentals, three world-class golf courses, an award-winning tennis and pickleball centre and an 11-mile inland salt-water lagoon system for kayaking and fishing. There are three restaurants within the resort, and Hilton Head Outfitters for bike rentals, canoes, kayaks, fishing and much more. The Mediterranean-style Shelter Cove Harbour, Hilton Head Island’s largest deep-water marina, is located right across from Palmetto Dunes and features waterfront shopping and dining and a wide variety of charters, including nature cruises, dolphin tours, sport crabbing and fishing.
