  • Wish the weather had been better when we visited, but overall, lovely visit. Unique lighthouse constructed with a lot of older wood inside. Views from the observation deck we excellent.  more »
  • 114 steps doesn't seem like a lot until you have to walk up them! The lighthouse is a nice part of a visit to Sea Pines on Hilton Head, but be prepared to pay $6 for parking to access the area. The vi...  more »

  • This is a gorgeous place to roam. Near the lighthouse there are many shops to shop for clothes and suvenirs. They also have a few restaurants. The lighthouse itself has 114 steps to the top. It has a gift shop at the bottom and at the top of the lighthouse as well. They said it gets very hot in the lighthouse during the summer and it isn't uncommon for people to get overheated when climbing the stairs to the top. I was not here during tourist season, so I do not know how busy it gets during that time. It is nice during the fall. This place has many residential homes as well as resorts around this area as well.
  • This lighthouse is amazing. There is a shop at the bottom and at the top. From ground to top is around 126 steps and there is no elevator so be prepared to deal with some steps. There is a museum from bottom to top and the price of admittance is $4.25 per person. It is definitely worth it to visit here- the view is spectacular and everything about this location is breathtaking. Several great restaurants are in this area, along with excellent ice cream. Definitely worth checking out!
  • The most beautiful place on Hilton Head island! Breathtaking sunsets are seen here, dolphins and racoons in the evening. :) At the top of the lighthouse there is a souvenir shop and you can go out on the balcony to look around and there is a camera which is capturing every moment so you can later find yourself on their website :) Also you can eat awesome ice cream in "Cups&cones", which is next to the lighthouse :)
  • This is a must see if you are a lighthouse buff. It is actually a fairly quick trip and a short climb compared to many other lighthouses. Also in the surrounding area near the lighthouse you will find a wealth of great shopping. Lots of great boutique stores. A specialty toy store and ice cream and candy store. Not forgetting to mention the clothing stores as well. Some gift shops with HHI trinkets here as well. Also has a few restaurants as well if you need a bite to eat.
  • Lot of history as you climb the light house.(no elevator you must walk up.) Some beautiful views. We saw a dolphin and some birds of prey. A fun experience
