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.

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.
