Hilton Head Island Hacks

Hilton Head Island Hacks

Relaxing on Hilton Head Island


 

1.) Get a table at A Lowcountry Backyard

Not to be missed – A Lowcountry Backyard should be on everyone’s Hilton Head Island bucket list!  It’s famous for its seafood cuisine and boasts a casual, fun atmosphere. Insider tip: they don’t accept reservations, so here are some ways to beat the rush:

  • Come for lunch- everyone else is at the beach
  • Eat an early bird dinner- the restaurant opens for dinner at 4:30 p.m.
  • If you have to wait, enjoy the full bar! Eat appetizers, enjoy live entertainment, and play the variety of games, including putt-putt and cornhole.

2.) Beach with ease! Love the beach but hate the hassle? Here are a few hacks to simplify your beach day and maximize your relaxation:

  • Use a sheet instead of a towel (fitted sheets will keep sand out).
  • Bring a tent if you have small children.
  • Clean out a lotion bottle and use it as a safe spot for your money, keys, etc.
  • Throw a bottle of baby powder in your bag – it easily removes sand from skin and hair.
  • Place your phone in a plastic sandwich bag to keep it protected from sand, sunscreen and water.
  • All beaches on Hilton Head Island are public, but there are only 4 public beach access points:
    • Alder lane
    • Coligny Circle Beach
    • Driessen Beach Park
    • Folly Field

At these access points you will find parking, lifeguards on duty, restrooms, showers, and beach equipment rentals.

  • Don’t bring alcohol or glass – it’s illegal and enforced.
  • Leave Fido at home – pets aren’t allowed on the beach between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
  • Protect the sea turtles.  Read how, here!
