Shopping + Oceanfront Relaxation: Stay in the Forest Beach Community

Centrally located on Hilton Head, Forest Beach boasts gorgeous white sand beaches and is home to the excitement of Coligny Plaza Shopping Center which features plenty of shopping and even live entertainment options. Whether you are seeking a villa with access to a community pool and walkable location or a private beachfront home, Forest Beach is ideal for families and friends looking for island relaxation.

Outdoor Adventure

It’s no wonder Forest Beach’s Coligny Beach Park is the most popular beach on Hilton Head Island with amenities like beach showers, gazebos, and a splash fountain that is sure to delight children of all ages. Perfect for reading a book as you lounge on the white sands or trying your hand at surfing in the warm Atlantic waters, this beach park promises family fun.

For even more outdoor adventure, explore the nearby Sea Pines Forest Preserve. The protected wildlife area invites guests to view the marshlands from boardwalks or to cast a fishing line from a dock. You could even book a tour to view the preserve from horseback or on a boat!

Ideally located across the street from the beach park, Coligny Plaza is the perfect spot to pick up a souvenir or find gifts for friends and family. From stores like Camp Hilton Head, to Island Girl, and even Hilton Head Toys, everyone is sure to find something that spikes their interest. Coligny Plaza is also home to the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra and Coligny Theatre, which shows movies and even hosts the occasional event! The perfect mixture of downtown charm and outdoor activities, Forest Beach invites you to experience the best of life in Hilton Head.
