“Busy but nice”
Review of Coligny Beach

Coligny Beach

No major complaints for this area except the crowds were huge. Hilton head is crowded but the beach was super nice. Parking is a bit if an issue at this location, so expect to look around and be patient.

Like the rest of Hilton Head Island, the beach is very long and flat--sort of solid, but clean. Coligny is extra long and flat. Lots of tides pools for younger children to splash in. There are lots of showers, chairs, swings, etc. before you enter the beach. Also, it's within walking distance to Coligny Plaza--perfect for lunch or an ice cream.

However, this beach can get VERY crowded--lots of people, lots of kids. Head north if you want something less noisy.

Coligny Beach is possibly the best appointed public beach area I have ever seen.

The beach itself is beautiful - miles of sand along a wide beach. The water temperature is perfect, warm yet a little refreshing once you hit chest-deep water. Fairly gentle surf most days.

The facilities for Coligny are fantastic - a carpeted area takes you down to the beach from a lovely wooden walkway. There are lots of stations to wash the sand off your feet as you return from the beach. Then you hit some wooden pergolas filled with muskoka-style wooden chairs, some rocking style. Swing benches are also available along the wooden walk-way.

Public showers, washrooms and change facilities are clean and well-appointed.

Closer to the road is a children's fountain area with fountains randomly shooting jets of water.

The area also has wifi - all in all, pretty upscale.

Dogs are permitted on the beach - leashes required during the day in peak season, which keeps non-dog people from getting uptight. After 5, dogs are allowed off leash and can chase the waves and run around.

Last benefit: There is free public parking very close by and well signed (does it get any better, anywhere?)
