It is also the busiest beach on Hilton Head. Free town parking, plus restrooms, fountain play areas for kids, boardwalk to beach and has handicap access to the beach. Bring your fat-tire bikes and ride on the beach at low tide. Because of the direction of the beach, you can see both beautiful sun rises and sunsets. Love to come... More

I've been coming to Coligny since I was a teenager, and every time it's like coming home again. The wide open beach between high and low tide, the tidal pools, it's heaven on the east coast. But don't tell everyone, it's a secret ;)

Loved our time on the beaches of Hilton Head Isle... this one was just a little too crowded for our taste. Enjoyed the ones towards Burkes beach better. :)

Perfect family beach! As you make your way to the water there's several shops to visit, a splash pad for kids, a changing area, and numerous outdoor swings to soak up that South Carolina sunshine! Once you get further down the walkway, as you start your trek onto the beach, there is a special covering in the sand that makes... More

Great beach in Hilton Head. Accessible parking and very easy to walk to. There's a boardwalk with changing rooms and showers and then a stable mat out to the beach. Chair and umbrella rentals are available. It can be crowded at peak times but it's a wide area of beach and we've never had a problem finding a spot

The beach is very clean, there isn't trash everywhere and the sand is pretty, but when I went it was VERY crowded. It also cost $40 to rent 2 beach chairs and an umbrella and we only got to use them for two hours. Overall, if you are a beach goer you might love it but it wasn't my cup... More

Convenient parking, soft sand, warm water, clean changing and restroom facilities. Sat in front of the Tiki Hut which was great for lunch/drinks.

This one beach is very crowded. Seems to be the only public beach with free parking. Worse than Myrtle Beach. There are lifeguards. Ask a local for other options.

We take our entire family to HHI each year from 85 to an expectant mother this year. It is a great beach for families. I wish they would enforce the bike laws, the pedestrian laws, and the traffic laws around the Coligny and the beach area like they did years ago. Traffic used to be forced to stop for pedestrians...

Hilton Head can be proud of Cologny Beach and the immediate surrounding area. It is CLEAN! It is family friendly with separate buildings for men's and ladies restrooms. There are outdoor showers and enclosed changing rooms. There are places to sit and rest, a shooting water area for kids and a nice firm walkway on the beach. There is nearby... More
