“Great Beach”
Review of Coligny Beach

Reviewed July 29, 2013

Coligny Beach is a great spot but is part of 12 miles of pristine beaches on Hilton Head. It is one of the many reasons so many families find HH a super place to vacation. There are numerous activities for children and adults as well. The restaurants are fabulous with all kinds of cuisine available all year round. I have lived here for 14 years full time and have found it to be a great place for retired people. Golf, tennis and the beach are good all year round with an average Jan. temp of 60 degrees as well as so many organizations that need many volunteers. What a chance to give back to those in need. All the questions aren't relative to this review.

Coligny Beach is very nice evidenced by the crowds that are drawn to that area of Hilton Head by the broad sandy beach, the new beach access that was completed a couple of years ago and the buzz from all of the beach people that also gravitate to the restaurants and shops at Coligny Plaza across the road. A little too crowded for me but many like the atmosphere.

Coligny Beach is located toward the South end of the island outside of Sea Pines Plantation. This beach is where the locals hang out. Parking is free and the beach is a great place to walk, sight see, play in the water or just chill. There is a shopping area across from the beach which includes Chicos, Fresh Produce, restaurants, coffee shop and other locally owned shops. The Holiday Inn is located on this beach. This area was recently renovated to include a 'water' play area for kids, nice changing areas and toilets. Although the beach is very crowded as you get off the fabric lined boardwalk, if you walk further down the beach in either direction you can have more privacy.

Lovely family beach - gets a bit crowded but if you walk along a bit you get can get a place. Good facilities on way on to and off beach - love the swings and free wifi. Top tip if staying on Island cycle down and leave bikes as parking at peak times can be difficult.

Favored by the tourists visiting the island, Hilton Head's Coligny Beach is the most crowded because of the local attractions near the beach. Shopping and dining abound and local entertainment keeps crowds interested. Beach facilities are new and clean and the walkway out to the beach accommodates handicapped (wheelchair) visitors. One favorite pastime is having a drink at the Tiki Bar that is in front of the Holiday Inn. Kids are welcome at this bar and a band is playing daily.
