South Beach Marina and Inn is the best kept secret on Hilton Head, if not in South Carolina. Located at the "toe" of the Island in Sea Pines Plantation - very special " New England fishing village" type atmosphere - has shops, 3 execellent restaurants including the infamous Salty Dog Cafe, tennis, swimming pool, outdoor entertainment during the warm months - which is most of the year, rent boats, rent bikes and a 3 minute walk to Tower Beach right on the Atlantic Ocean - or you can drive and park in the generous parking area. There is a general store on the premises of South Beach for most needs. The Inn rooms are located above the shops and are in the Nantuckett style with beautiful hardwood floors, chinz covered chairs and sofas, kitchnettes and some rooms have view of the inlet and the fishing boats. Not advertised very well because of the restrictive covenants of Sea Pines Plantation - residential, but a wonderful place to stay - lowest rates on the Island. The only drawback is there is no elevator and all the rooms are on the 2nd floor - but the staff is most helpful. It would be impossible for anyone confined to a wheelchair to stay at the Inn. South Beach also has condos right on the beach and on the inlet for rent that would be handicap accessible. Literally, you can go there park your car, check in and never leave and get in the traffic of the Island if you didn't want to. Of course, Harbour Town is also in Sea Pines - so you just follow the crooked roads and the circles and go to the infamous light house and yatch basin and they have wonderful shops and restaurants there as well.
