Hilton Head Island’s Coligny Beach has been named one of the top beaches in the country! 

The Hilton Head beach — the only South Carolina beach to make the U.S. list — joins nine beaches in Hawaii, eight in Florida, four in California and one each in Massachusetts, Georgia and Virginia.

Each beach on the list had a review highlight included, such as “Beautiful, clean and well kept”  Coligny’s was listed for “Lots of amenities.”

Coligny’s TripAdvisor page shows it has more than 3,200 reviews with 67 percent saying it’s “excellent” and 25 percent saying it’s “very good,” and it has an overall 4.5 out of 5 rating. It’s also listed as the No. 9 thing to do (of 116) on Hilton Head Island.

Feedback from visitors include: 

  • This beach is wide, fairly flat and very clean. Great place to walk, even in winter though be prepared for wind and chill on colder days.
  • All I can say is AWESOME beach...Very clean water and surroundings. Bathrooms are also very clean and there's some really nice Restaurants within walking distance. I can't remember the name of the place we had lunch, but it was upstairs in the shopping area, which was just a few steps over from the beach, but overall, a very pleasant beach.
  • We can walk to the Hilton Head Island Beach from our condo. We love it. As soon as we unpack, we change & head over to the beach. It's like coming home! It is one of the best family beaches we've ever been too!!! Even if you're not a really social person, by the end of the day, you have a whole new beach family :) It's such a clean beach, not too many seashells though if you're a seashell hunter. We love it !
