Hilton Head Attractions

Harbour Town Marina and Shelter Cove Marina are the most well known Hilton Head Attractions but this beautiful island has plenty more to offer besides.

Harbour Town Marina

Part of Sea Pines Resort, Harbour Town Marina has long been a favourite destination for visitors to Hilton Head Island. It’s picturesque setting overlooking Calibogue Sound provides a relaxing backdrop as you sample the freshest catch at one of the seafood restaurants along the front.

The unique candy striped lighthouse is the primary attraction but for many it is simply a place to relax, stroll along the marina, enjoy lunch or dinner at one of the many fine establishments on offer or explore the gift shops and small boutiques.

See our page on Sea Pines Resort for more information.
