lies on South Carolina’s “Treasure Coast,” where its’ greatest attraction is twelve miles of wide, sun-kissed beaches and its’ famed candy cane striped lighthouse. The waters around Hilton Head Island weave their way in and out of several marinas – with capacities ranging from 85 slips to 258 slips. It’s a perfect yachting destination, with all of the marinas being full-service, and some of the harbors featuring fine dining, shopping and outdoor entertainment. Some of Hilton Head’s marinas also offer boating or sailing lessons, and instruction in kayaking and water-skiing. There are rentals for powerboats and waverunners, as well as many charters for island and offshore expeditions. Hilton Head is the largest barrier island between New York and Cuba, and has a lovely subtropical climate, making it superb for such events as wine auctions, art festivals, auto and boat shows and sports competitions. Just a few of the recreational activities on Hilton Head include swimming, beachcombing, sport crabbing, parasailing, and deep-sea and inshore fishing. It is also known as one of the international golf capitals of the world, with over 50 championship courses. Hilton Head has something for everyone – from special kid’s adventures, dolphin watching and nature cruises and morning, afternoon or sunset sails. The only “city” on the island is Harbour Town, a Mediterranean-style collection of shops and restaurants, and home to the famous red and white striped lighthouse, which features a small shop on top.
