Put the rake down and turn away from the leaf pile because the only thing falling down here are bright rays of sunshine casting a shimmering autumn light across “still warm enough to frolic in” seas. Hilton Head is a coastal utopia in any season, but there’s something about fall that really lets its beauty and southern charm shine through. Let us count the ways that make it the finest island time of year!
1. Perfect temperatures day and night
Warm days are spent relaxing on the beach, playing in the surf, playing a round or two of golf, dining al fresco, and catching some rays. While cooler nights are meant for throwing on a sweater, gathering around a waterside fire pit with a cocktail in hand and flip-flops on your kicked up feet.
2. Al fresco dining is perfection
From sunsets and seafood at the landmark Hudson’s Seafood on The Docks on Skull Creek to sunrises and steak & eggs and WatusiCafé in Coligny beach there are countless places to count your lucky taste-bud stars as you dine under the stars. For over half a century Hudson’s has been serving up the freshest seafood on the island along with the most stunning sunsets over the Intracoastal Waterway. Watusi is a “neighborhood café” where they make everyone feel right at home [even your pup who can order something special from the pet-friendly patio menu]. This family-owned restaurant offers a gourmet coffee bar and an eclectic menu of healthy breakfast and lunch fare including gluten-free and vegetarian options.
3. Room to relax
Social distancing couldn’t be easier from the beach, to restaurants, to attractions, because Hilton Head Island is less crowded this time of year. Hilton Head has over 12 miles of beaches and this time of year there’s plenty of room to stretch out your beach blanket and bury your little toes in the sand, but a hidden sandy gem is Mitchellville Beach on the North end. It’s nestled along the shores of Port Royal sound right where the sound meets the sea.
4. Get out–as in on the water and the golf course
There’s no better way to stay six feet or more apart from everyone–but the ones you love–than by getting outside, whether that’s on the water or the links. You can’t swing a titanium driver without hitting a golf course in Hilton Head. From Atlantic Dunes in Sea Pines to the Robert Cupp course in Palmetto Hall you’ll discover beauty is easily found, but your ball however is another story.
If you want to be on or flying above the water than you want to get to Island Head Water Sports on the North end in Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort & Marina. They offer parasailing, pontoon boats, guided kayak & paddle board tours, sunset & firework cruises and more!
