Trip Planner: USA / South Carolina / Coastal South Carolina / Hilton Head / Coligny Beach
The shoreline at Coligny Beach is entirely open to the public, making it one of the liveliest beaches on Hilton Head. Swim in the ocean, relax on one of the park's swings, or take a walk down the boardwalk. If you need to escape from the sun, the Coligny Beach Plaza is only a short walk away. This plaza is a favorite of beach-goers and features more than 60 shops and restaurants. While the beach is public property, entrances to the beach can be private, so be sure to visit the official website to find out about public entry points and parking. Coligny Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
Coligny Beach reviews
We were at this beach several times during the week we were in Hilton Head and it was amazing! There's matting on the walk to the beach, doggie waste stations, and basket trees where beach-goers can..... more

All of Hilton heads beaches are awesome. We biked the 3 miles from sea pines on the beach(check wind direction!) to have lunch and enjoy the live music at the Tiki Hut. Great views and food!

The beach is very clean and parking was plentiful…but it was January…..the nearby shopping and dining area had a lot to offer.

Free public access to the Atlantic Ocean in a Hilton Head Island, SC! Beautiful boardwalk bringing you into the heart of the park. Clean restrooms, rinse off area, changing rooms and lots of shaded seating stops. Wheel chair and scooter accessible mat also available. Beach with lifeguards is very clean with several umbrella chairs and prime seating for families enjoying the day at the beach. Would definitely return!
Cool beach, gets busy during hot days for swimming. Many people around so it's mostly safe. Nice sunrises over the Atlantic and decent sunsets. Oceans can be flat as pancake or have 4-5 foot choppers in the same day. High and low tides add about 20 yards to beach area. Fun place to people watch
I love this beach park. The trees are so beautiful and the water was so clear. They have lots of pine trees and the bright green leave plants. I also love that parking was easy, at least when we went in December. They also have bathrooms and showers.
For a public (free) beach park, Coligny is extremely nice. Even in late October there were a lot of people walking and biking the beach. Loads of families and couples enjoying the beach and the local birds. I’m sure this spot in the summer is a popular one. They have plenty of amenities like outdoor showers and feet washing stations. If you’re in HHI this is a great spot for an afternoon walk or adventure.
Great beach. Beautiful sunrise views. Smooth, gradual water entry for high and low tide making it easy to play in -- not always the best for boogie boarding or finding shells. Lots of free parking, showers, bathrooms, changing rooms, seats, etc. and nearby shopping and eating (live bands) make it easy to take the whole family. Blue umbrellas with 2 chairs are available for rent from the "beach patrol" (not to be confused with the lifeguards also wearing red) for ~$40/day 9:00 - 5:00. Almost stepped on a stingray - pay attention!
