It was cloudy everyday of our week at the beach. Soft sand but very crowded public beach area. Walk toward end of the island for less congestion. Great lifeguard presence and felt safe to let my teens walk from morning til night.

Perfect beach for families as near hotels and walk in area has restrooms, changing stations, and a water sprout area for children of all ages. It can be crowded but the beach is lovely.

Great beach! Free parking across the street. Free shuttle over to the beach. Chair and umbrella rentals for $35. Publix is right before you get to the beach if you need to pick up snacks and water. These items are not sold near the beach...More

I've been to many and this is hands down my favorite. It does get crowded but the waves are perfect (like a wave pool). You won't be disappointed

Great place even if you don't like to sit on the beach. Awesome entrance with nice restrooms, swings for adults and a "rug" to walk through the sand and down to the beach near the water. You can rent chairs and umbrellas but my husband...More

While visiting Hilton Head, walked the beach at Coligny Beach area and watched the sun rise...Beach at low tide is very wide and great sand. Not as much beach at high tide so plan accordingly. You can also ride most rented bikes at low tide...More

This beach was awesome! Get there around 9 am and stay until after lunch. Most people show up around 10:30-11. They have umbrellas available for rent for $45. Go to see the sunrise too, you won't be sorry!

It's the hustle and bustle of HHI beach life but it is a beautiful beach. My grands can play in the clean white sand for hours. When the tide is out there is a tremendous sandbar which is great for playing right at the shoreline....More

What a beautiful beach. Wide and expensive. Clean. You can walk out quite far without it getting too deep. Enjoy.

parking is free at Coligny Beach Park otherwise it is a quarter for every 15-30 minutes (depending on which meter location you use).

Hi. I loved the beach and disney, so I thought why not try out the disney hilton head island beach resort and go to the Hilton head beaches? well over the past week or so, I've been hearing hilton head and SC beaches in general, also myrtle Beach, are a bit murky, brown, not too clear. I grew up in S Florida so I'm used to clear, blue ocean water! I think it'd be fine as long as the water isn't like dark river or lake water. can someone give me some opinions on these beaches and water conditions/clarity? Thank you!
