For the fourth consecutive year, Conde Nast Traveler’s readers named Hilton Head Island the best island in the U.S.! More than 600,000 readers, a record number per Conde Nast, voted in the survey.
Among other islands in the top rankings were Maui, Oahu, and Lanai, Hawaii. Kiawah was fifth, and Isle of Palms ranked seventh in the magazine’s listing. Marco Island, Amelia Island and Longboat Key, Florida; and St. Simons/Little St. Simons, Georgia, rounded out the Top 10.
Conde Nast had this praise for Hilton Head:
“This is the kind of getaway that satisfies all travelers — you could spend a weekend beach-bumming (pick your spot on 12 miles of pristine sand), shopping locally-made handicrafts, eating out at restaurants that compete with those in major cities, or sweating it out on a bike trail, paddleboard, or golf course.”
The Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport was also ranked No. 1 among the Best Airports in the US.
