If Hilton Head Island is shaped like a foot, South Beach is its big toe. And this toe just keeps on tapping – from sunrise well into the nighttime hours. Many consider this southern-most point on Hilton Head to be the most “happening” place to be and a visitor favorite.
Located within the Sea Pines Resort, South Beach Marina Village (232 South Sea Pines Drive) is modeled after a New England-style fishing village. It is a great place to congregate, people watch, and spend the day with so many different things to do.
The morning hours bustle. Coffee drinkers sit at an outdoor café. Cyclists and joggers head out to the bike trails. Beach goers saunter across the road to spread their blankets for the day. Charter fishing boats head out for another day of “fresh catching.” Kids run along the dock, anxious to climb aboard their rented jet ski or sailboat. Nature lovers climb aboard a Zodiac raft for a guided dolphin tour.
By noon the gift and souvenir shops are full. The restaurants team with hungry customers. The spacious parking lot is full and cars line the roadside.
And then, the evening fun begins. Sounds of Jimmy Buffet fill the air while crowds of diners collect on the expansive waterside deck.
Kids line up for face painting while the smell dinner cooking tempts even the staunchest of dieters. Sing-alongs keep everyone in the spirit of a perfect Hilton Head vacation.
Unless you’re staying within Sea Pines, there is a fee to pass through the gates, but it’s good for the whole day because once you’re there, your big toe just won’t stop tapping.
