One of my favorite spots on HHI is Dolphin Head. This beach has narrow shores and is located on the northern tip of Hilton Head Island, facing Port Royal Sound at the edge of Hilton Head Plantation. This beach shows nature at it's best! At low tide, beach walkers can safely explore most of Dolphin Head. Along your walk you will see live oaks and pines, oysters, crabs & driftwood. Here are some of my pictures along my walk.
