“Awesome beach)”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The location cannot be beat. Parking is very close to the beach. It was very clean, but crowded. I was impressed that at the entrance there were lots of private showers and areas to rinse off. The beach also has a number of swings to sit in. The walkway to the actual beach had carpet(or fabric) that you could walk on. You don't appreciate that until your feet are burning from the hot sand. If you don't want to bring chairs, you can rent them for $32. Just look for a sheet of paper in the mesh.

I will most certainly be back!

“Great 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.

“Mid Island Buzz”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.

“Hilton Head's Downtown”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

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.
