Great place to go for vacationers when in town good location for shopping, getting a bite to eat and enjoying the beach and ocean without having to walk a great distance. Beautiful landscaping and good accessibility to bathrooms,changing rooms and showers right off the beach.

A great beach to walk or run. You can spend your entire day here very easily. You can take a break and hit an eatery and then come straight back. Nice beach for the kids, as well.

Clean, has a great entrance w/1 of those spouty fountains for kids & some adults to play in, changing rooms, showers, showers for your feet, swings & rocking chairs all along the board walk. There is a type of carpet runner going onto the beach which is great for taking out beach carts & wheelchairs.

Hilton Head does not have a specific town center but I would say Coligny Beach area serves very well in that role. The beach is beautiful, lots of parking, and plenty of outdoor showers, bathrooms and changing areas. They redid the beach entrance a few years ago and it's beautiful - kids love the shooting fountains that come up from the walkway. Coligny Plaza across the street has great restaurants and shops so it's a fun place to walk around. I stayed at Seacrest which is on Coligny beach and I loved the area. I stayed at North Shore Place which is one block away last year and enjoyed the area so much I returned. If you are looking for a great, clean public beach on Hilton Head Island, definitely head to Coligny Beach.

No I'm not surprised that Hilton Head had a clean beach. Everything on the Island is super maintained for the most part. And when entering the Sea Pines area you pay $5 for the day which goes to keeping everything in tip top shape. We witnessed every service from Plumbers, Electricians, to Tree Surgeons..

Coligny Beach had a beautiful public approach from the street, ample restrooms, seating areas (even a giant porch swing), and lots of what I call foot cleaning spots to rinse the sand from your feet and gear. Going out onto the sand you have a sidewalk made of tough woven plastic enabling even a physically disabled person to take their scooter almost right to the water!

The Life Guards are friendly and attentive and also rent out the 2 chair w/beach umbrella sets. The beach itself is very wide with plenty of room for everyone. Best thing about it is that you don't have to enter Sea Pines to get to it as it is just outside the Sea Pines community and gates.

Lots of parking available for the physically handicapped as well as lots of non-handicapped parking all around. I was tiffed however at seeing a mini sports car drive up and park in the handicapped area because he didn't want to walk or be far from his car. Wish I could have put a matching boot on his little baby!

Anyway while there are several beach parks this is an extra nice one near what some consider the ritzy Sea Pines community. A nice choice if you are staying more than midway down the island.
