Beach Access Points

On Hilton Head all of the beaches are public – from the beautiful Atlantic waters to the high water mark – so the hardest part is finding a place to park and access the beach. There are several parks that provide access to the Hilton Head Island beaches that welcome guests year-round, with a lot of great amenities.

Adler Lane provides beach access just off of South Forest Beach Drive. Metered parking is available across the street for beach goers, so be sure to bring some quarters! If you are looking for a quitter beach going experience, Alder Lane Beach is usually un-crowded and who doesn’t love that?! The beach does offer handicap beach matting, outdoor showers, restrooms and seasonal lifeguards.
