Hilton Head Beaches

 Hilton Head beaches

I can't think of anything happier than a dog on a beach.

The wind is in the air, the dog prances and pounces about, ears flapping, tongue lolling, and the dog jumps into the water that washes against the shore.

Unfortunately, most beaches don't allow dogs, as those of you who have watched Marley and Me know, so we were excited to learn that Hilton Head allows dogs on its beaches for most of the year.

The rules are as follows:
From October 1 to March 31, dogs are allowed off-leash, under voice control.
From April 1 to the Friday before Memorial Day, dogs are allowed on-leash between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and off-leash the rest of the time.
Dogs are NOT allowed on the beach from the Friday before Memorial Day until the Monday after Labor Day.
From the Tuesday after Labor to October 1, dogs are allowed on-leash between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and off-leash the rest of the time.

Check here for updated rules.

We parked at the Coligny Beach Circle in the center of the Hilton Head beaches and walked through a nice park area with outside seating to the beaches.  As soon as we were on the beach, we took the dogs off leash and let them run.

They loved, loved, loved the beaches there and so did we.  The Hilton Head beaches are soft and pleasant to walk in and when we were there (in early March), there weren't too many crowds and plenty of dogs meandering about.

Suffice it to say, that Chewy and Abby gave Hilton Head's beaches two very enthusiastic tails up.

Details

  • Be forewarned that Hilton Head is an expensive vacation destination and it was tough to find restaurants under the $20/entree price tag.  I'll give a run-down of Hilton Head pet-friendly restaurants next.
  • We stayed at the Red Roof Inn in Hilton Head at 5 Regency Parkway, Hilton Head, in their "All-Inclusive King Room."  It was clean, cheap (at $55/night), and in a convenient location.  The All-Inclusive King Room is on the second floor and has a desk area which Patrick used to set up his computer to work.  The exterior grounds had plenty of grass for us to walk our dogs and other than our bathroom smelling like dog pee, we didn't have any problems with the room.  All Red Roof Inns allow pets without any charge (yay!).  We recommend it as a good pet-friendly option for Hilton Head, especially because most other hotels are quite expensive.

I couldn't agree more about there being anything happier! Those rules are brilliant. I can see the need for restriction in the busy months because the cleaning problem would get out of hand and/or expensive. Of course, it wouldn't be necessary if people always cleaned up after their pooches, would it?!

Dogs are pretty much banned from beaches here too. The difference is that early mornings or evenings no-one takes a blind bit of notice! Every now and then the police will have a "purge" and be out at 7am looking, but then they decide to for illegal parking or something else to amuse themselves!

I am going to collect all these recommendations, because I would love to do a road trip across the US with my dog :=) Only thing was I had to double check where Hilton Head was, not being American I hadn't heard of it before. Looking forward to your next post!

I don't get it when people don't clean up after their dogs. To me, it's basic good dog-owner behavior but so many people refuse to do the simplest of tasks, ruining it for the rest of us. :(

A lot of beaches here in the U.S. only allow dogs in the early morning or late evening which we sometimes do because it's so peaceful at those times. And, oops - I should have mentioned that it was in South Carolina. :)

We discovered on our trip around the U.S. that while most beaches aren't dog friendly.... you can sort of skirt the rules sometimes. :P Of course, whenever we did that we were always nervous and worked extra hard to keep our pup away from everyone, but particularly in an off-season the beaches are empty and just begging to be romped on! We're such rebels, lol.

Christy, Yeah - it is possible to skirt some of the rules but some places are VERY strict. At least you're rebels WITH a cause. (And the highest of all causes, as I see it - for dogs to have fun.)

shame more beaches aren't pup-friendly! we actually watched a warden take a dog into "custody" in naples, fla.

Jules, Oh that's terrible. I can't believe that they made the dog go off the beach. I wish more parks and beaches were pet-friendly in this country because beaches are made for romping, in our opinion.

I love that Hilton Head beaches offer dogs a place to run and play! There are a few dog beaches in the St. Petersburg-Clearwater area of Fla. If you are heading there on a vacation they can be found on the county parks website. Most restaurants in the town of Gulfport allow dogs on the patios and even provide a bowl of water. I love that more and more destinations are allowing dogs to be a part of the beach experience.

That's wonderful that there are dog beaches in the St. Petersburg area! When we lived in Jacksonville, there weren't a lot of beaches that allowed dogs but I think cities are wising up to the fact that dogs (and dog owners) love the beach.

That was a fantastic consideration of this case! I like very much to read Your posts and this is for me absolutely number one blog in this topic! Congratulations and keep working like this.

Shoreline House is situated along the most lucky portion of South Carolina shore, steps far from Hilton Head Island's Coligny Beach and a couple short miles from your decision of 13 title greens.

It's beautiful to watch your dog playing on a beach. I used to go to the beach always with my dog. He is always happy to be there and play with the wind. It's fun to run with him. Those beautiful pictures really reminded me of our weekend trips.

Wonderful post and you share excellent content in this post i am happy to comment on this Online Fashion.

Celebrities started endorsing the product but not through sponsorship or advertisement deals but by actually choosing to buy mulberry replica handbags in their own personal life and of course to be snapped by the paparazzi swinging their bags around town!cheap mulberry bags ARE expensive but when you buy quality you only cry once! In other words, after the initial purchase pang of guilt has worn off you will realize you have not only bought a top of the range leather bag but that you've also invested in a wearable and practical fashion accessory that will retain a significant amount of it's value over the years.
