Forest Beach

Life's a Beach House

Life’s a Beach House

Forest Beach runs parallel to the Atlantic ocean on the southern end of Hilton Head. It’s an eclectic three-mile residential and commercial stretch comprised of the North and South Forest Beach areas. Centered at Coligny Circle, Forest Beach is one of Hilton Head’s oldest and most unique neighborhoods. Some homes and beachside bungalows were built in the 1950s and 1960s and remain as built today. The main attraction for residents and visitors to Forest Beach is the close proximity to the sea. Each lot in the area is within 600 yards of the Atlantic. While most of Hilton Head’s planned communities are gated, Forest Beach has neither gates nor private security. All of Forest Beach is within walking distance to some of the island’s original shopping, dining and entertainment establishments located in nearby Coligny Plaza.


Dozens of shops, boutiques, restaurants and cafes—not to mention plenty of parking spaces—draw thousands of tourists and locals alike each year to the Forest Beach area.  There are also commercial bike rentals, a mini golf attraction, and beach chair rentals on this strip.  But the most popular attraction is the wide, wonderful Atlantic beach.

Coligny Beach Park – This is Hilton Head’s most-visited public beach access and includes an attractive beach walk with benches, porch swings and seating, dressing rooms and facilities, and a large, ornate water fountain play area where little children love to frolic.

Coligny Plaza – Hilton Head’s original shopping area, and home of the first grocery store and movie theatre, Coligny Plaza has more than 150 quaint boutiques, beach stores and dining options and is more popular today than ever.

Tiki Hut – This wildly popular oceanfront beach bar, part of the Holiday Inn Beach House Hotel, features cold libations, several beach volleyball courts, live music and is one of the most popular oceanfront gathering spots for residents and visitors.
