Coligny Beach offers amenities that elevate a beach day such as volleyball nets for a game with friends, a pavilion where you can eat your packed picnic, and even Wi-Fi! The beach is also home to one of the only beach bars on the island if you do decide you want to splurge on a beach cocktail.

The Coastal Discovery Museum is a 68-acre property that invites visitors to explore the natural and cultural history of Hilton Head Island! The exhibits on display vary from historical buildings, gardens, and the Santa Elena. You can also find events occurring nearly on a daily basis that invite more exploration and learning.
