    Nice place to stroll around with friends and be relaxed. The area has lots of quaint shops, good restaurants, and live music (the night we were there). We did have to pay $6 to park. It is $4.95 to go...  more »

    Beautiful area. Right on the water, quaint shops, restaurant, marina, and the view! Looking out at the water you can see fish jumping, dolphins playing, parasailing, and the ships coming into the mari...  more »

    This lighthouse used to be free to explore and enjoy. Now you pay $4.25 per person to climb 114 steps to see a lighthouse that was always meant to be decoration. Super disappointing and overly commerc...  more »

    This is just one of those things everyone that is able should do on Hilton Head at least once. I would suggest doing it on a cool day though as it can get hot inside the lighthouse making the stair climb to the top more difficult. On the way up there is plenty to look at and read so take your time. The view from the top is also better on a day that isn't too windy.

    Great place to visit! The lighthouse is super cool and they let you go all the way to the top. It is pretty busy though (or at least when I went). They have 2 gift shops as well. I would definitely recommend going here.

    It was a neat little attraction to explore. It has a bunch of history lining the walls on the way up but my children of course weren't going to let me stop to read any of it 😄 The view was pretty but nothing spectacular. There was also live music and a few shops to look at around it which made it worth the trip.

    We were greeted by the most delightful woman before ascending to the top for a lovely view of surrounding marina, park & golf course! There is a little shop with some nicer souvenirs & gifts. Thank you for supporting Hilton Head Heros! Your generosity & caring demeanor made for a particularly memorable experience!

    First, I would like to start off by saying I'm a big advocate of visiting Hilton head for vacation. However, I will never visit sea pines again. The people that are helping direct cars to get in are extremely rude. I made the simple mistake and got into the homeowners lane to enter sea pines. I told the gentlemen that I made the mistake and wanted to get into the visitors lane. The man on the other side was EXTREMELY RUDE and said the other man told me to leave(not true). He yelled and made sure I backed my car up to leave. I was looking forward to the shopping, dining and entertainment sea pines has to offer, but unfortunately I will never return due to my experience.

Where to stay in Hilton Head

A favorite East Coast beach destination, Hilton Head caters to a range of visitors, with budget options as well as world-class luxury hotels. Accommodations here are priciest in the summer months, during the high season. Among upscale options, choose from high-end resorts, hotels of all sizes, and gorgeous villas along the water.
