Beach Access & Regulations
On Hilton Head Island, the beach is public, from the ocean to the high watermark. Many access points are private. Therefore, the Town of Hilton Head Island provides public beach access points and parks at various locations along the Atlantic Ocean-side of the Island (including Port Royal Sound), for easy entrance to our beaches for your enjoyment.
For pertinent information regarding animals on the beach, please familiarize yourself with the Beach Regulations.
