Hilton Head Island’s distinctive scenery, combined with its beaches and mysterious light, makes sunset viewing an enduring Lowcountry pastime.
Any place on the western side of the Island will give you a good sunset, particularly our beaches. From South End locations such as Harbour Town, you can watch the sun set over Calibogue Sound and magical Daufuskie Island. Walk out onto Harbour Town’s pier or climb the Harbour Town Lighthouse for stunning sunset views. From North End locations, Skull Creek and Pinckney Island provide the scenery. Mid-Island, western facing views are of Broad Creek and its marshes teeming with wildlife. Palmetto Bay Marina is a popular sunset viewing location, as is Shelter Cove Harbour.
If you are on Daufuskie Island, make sure you catch the sunset views from Freeport Marina or the Beaufort County Dock.
You can also view the sunset from the water aboard boats ranging in size from double deck excursion boats, small six-passenger canopies boats, or by sail boat and kayak.
Most ecotour companies offer sunset tours.
