This gated community was one of the original beach resorts in Hilton Head Island. In 2003 Travel & Leisure magazine ranked it as the number one family-oriented resort in the world, and the location is famous both amongst families and passionate golfers. Beautiful Palmetto Dunes offers visitors the opportunity to rent private properties instead of hotel rooms. Also, midway along the beach, you can find the Dunes House, a public-access beach facility.
Palmetto Dunes is known as well for having some of the best-golfing facilities in the USA. Courses such as the George Fazio and Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront are both award-winning, and the Arthur Hills course was regarded as one of the best courses, according to Fodor’s Golf Digest. It also offers tourists an educational experience at its learning centers, where you can learn how to kayak or swing a tennis racket. Speaking of lagoons, the natural beauty of Palmetto Dunes is reflected in its 11-mile long lagoon, which can be explored by kayak for a unique and exciting experience.
