Everything You Need for the Perfect Beach Day on Hilton Head Island

July 20th 2017

It’s summertime and the living is easy, especially if you’re on Hilton Head Island! If there’s one thing that we love about summer in Lowcountry, it’s the chance to enjoy our stunning beaches day in and day out. Palmetto Dunes is set on three extraordinary miles of beachfront, and whether you’re strolling its shores, building sandcastles, relaxing under the sun, or surfing the waves, Hilton Head Outfitters has everything you need for the perfect beach day.

You’re never far from the beach when you’re at Palmetto Dunes! We have plenty of bike trails that lead directly to the beach and if you’re a pass holder, you can park your vehicle at The Dunes House. While our close proximity makes it tempting to make an impromptu run towards the waves, we’ve found that the best way to make the most of a beach day is to do a tiny bit of planning.

Pack your beach bag with towels, sunscreen, a hat, and a good beach read. If you’re traveling with kids, consider packing some toys, too. Didn’t bring any with you to Hilton Head Island? Ask if there are any at your vacation rental, or check out the selection we have in store! It’s always a good idea to pack some water, too.

If you’re planning to spend a significant amount of time at the beach, swing by and arrange a beach umbrella rental! It can be handy to have some shade to rest under, and it’s always good to have a home base for everyone to return to after roaming the beach or going for a swim. The friendly staff at Hilton Head Outfitters are more than happy to deliver your rental items to your vacation home so they’ll be ready to go to the beach when you are. Not only that, our lightweight aluminum chairs are both comfortable and easy to transport.

Once you’ve made it to the beach and found your perfect patch of white sand, it’s time to set up and enjoy! If you get hungry, head to The Dunes House for some lunch or share a plate of nachos for a snack. There are also two grocery stores near Palmetto Dunes, and of course the General Store, if you’d prefer to bring your snacks with you.

If you or your kids are looking to liven up your beach day, consider registering for surf lessons! The pros at Hilton Head Outfitters are experienced at teaching all ages and levels. Or, simply rent a surf board and hit the waves solo. We’ve also got stand-up paddleboards that are perfect for exploring—especially on a day when the water is calmer.
