Located northeast of Savannah, Georgia, Hilton Head Island hugs the southern coast of South Carolina. The waters surrounding the shoe-shaped island’s sparkling beaches are a popular playground for kayakers, yachters, and bottlenose dolphins that come near the shore to feed. Golf is also a major draw; dozens of courses are scattered throughout Hilton Head, and it’s the site of an annual event on the PGA tour. Despite the island’s tiny size, it boasts more than 200 restaurants, serving both Lowcountry southern cuisine and gourmet international fare. The town of Bluffton, located near the hotel, supplies a cultural outlet via its art galleries, antique museums, and preserved antebellum discos.
