Good public beach access area, with a parking lot right across the street. The parking lot isn't really big, so come a little early. The area is very nice, and has been redone in the past few years. Many shops, restaurants in this area (Coligny Circle) within an easy walk. Wide, soft sand beach, and very easy access and public... More

We were there during a very rainy four days - so only got a few hours on the beach. Parking could be challenging if you had a sunny day.

We stayed in a villa a couple blocks down from Coligny beach and Coligny Circle. The beach is a public access area so it can get crowded but it's a nice area to hang out and enjoy the surf and sand. We rode our bikes on the beach here in the evening when the crowds left.

My family stopped here for about an hour or so (we weren't dressed in beach wear because the weather man told us it would rain). When we realized it was not going to rain, we decided to still come here just to take in the smell, sounds of the waves, and the view. We were not disappointed. Though it was... More

Easy access and always clean. Love the showers and boardwalk area. Parking could be a little better, gets hard to park in summer.

Coligny Beach is the center of all things visitor related at Hilton Head. Shops, restaurants, hotels and biking paths surround this location and it's one of the easiest spots to access the beach on Island. Want to take a long walk or bike ride? Check the tide charts for low tide. The beaches on Island have smooth, packed sand at... More

They have a nice paving stone path leading to the beach with porch swings and cabanas that make this beach a pleasure to visit in the usual HHI quality! Great place to ride bikes on the beach; very family friendly mix of shops. Perfect !

The feel of that gentle breeze in your face and the soft sand right at the waters edge between your toes. The weather has finally warmed up after the slow spring temperatures have finally come to comfort us after a long winter. But complain we don't. I met someone from PA this past week, and they said the north has... More

It was a great treat to ride our bikes on the beach. Being from New England we do have beach like that with hard sand. The beach was nice and the town does a nice job of entrance to the beach w/bath houses. Need to check it out.

Coligny Beach has plenty of parking, flat beach access, clean restrooms, and plenty of places to sit and relax. My family was here during March, so it wasn't very crowded, but I imagine it is very crowded when the weather is nice. My grandparents were with us and they are both over 80 years old and they enjoyed this park... More
