Palmetto Dunes Hilton Head is located in the center of this beautiful, semi-tropical 12-mile long island. The white, sand beach along the Atlantic Ocean is the number one reason vacationers choose Hilton Head Island, South Carolina as a vacation destination. The Palmetto Dunes Plantation offers beautiful, private homes to rent, along with spectacular oceanfront villas/condos and villas with fairway or lagoon views. Although the units are located in the middle of everything, once you enter the plantation, you're transported to a world of natural beauty and serenity. Ancient oaks laced with Spanish moss, wild palms, and quiet cul-de-sac streets combine to help restore and rejuvenate the spirit.
In addition to all that the area offers are the miles of scenic bike paths, three signature golf courses, tennis (including the Palmetto Dunes Tennis Center,) and an incredible 11-mile long interconnecting lagoon system where you can kayak, canoe and fish. Additionally, there are two hotels for dining, along with Alexander's Restaurant and a convenience store. For the more serious shopper, directly across from the Palmetto Dunes Plantation is Shelter Cover Harbour. This beautiful Harbour has many terrific boutiques including a Christmas shop, and picture perfect restaurants situated right on the Harbour. There's even the dune buggy, which will transport you from your vacation property to Shelter Cove, as well as the enclosed mall at Shelter Cove.
Shelter Cove, as the name suggests, is a picturesque marina, lined with exciting shops and quaint restaurants. The Harbour, presided over by the large bronze statue of Neptune, has been an attraction for many visitors each year. The charming marina offers shelter for many boats of all descriptions that may be seeking a resting spot along South Carolina and Georgia intercostals waterway. As one might expect, you definitely want to bring your camera to capture the beauty and charm of this wonderful attraction that helps make Hilton Head Island so special.
The restaurants offer a fabulous array of seafood, Italian and Mexican cuisines, many with harbor side seating. Enjoy the sights and sounds, and the ebb and flow of boats and people, while feasting on sumptuous seafood.
Adding to all of this excitement is discovering the unique shops, offering a variety of treasures. Here you will discover unique fashion, art galleries, novelty shops and gift shops.
Throughout the summer, there are fireworks that light up the sky above the Harbour. Even if it is not the Fourth of July, entertain the family with the exciting sights and sounds of fireworks on any Tuesday between June 4th and August 31st. Additionally, children's entertainer Shannon Tanner will be present for you and your little ones to sing along with.
Also of special interest is the Capt Hook, Hilton Head's largest party fishing boat, which departs from the Shelter Cove Marina almost daily throughout the year. With so many species of fish in the fertile intercostals waterway, you never know what might be tugging on your line. For more information and to make reservations please call 843-785-1700.
