From one of “The World’s Best Places to Stay” and “Top 100 Resorts in North America” to ranking #6 for “World’s Best Family Travel” and “Top 50 Resorts for Parents and Kids”, the Sea Pines resort area of Hilton Head Island offers a slice of paradise for each and every visitor.

Hilton Head is known for its 12 miles of unspoiled beaches and gentle Atlantic waves. Sea Pines Plantation boasts the largest stretch of beach in Hilton Head with five miles of sandy beaches with easy and convenient beach access passes about every 10th of a mile throughout the plantation. Whether you’re looking for a quiet stretch of sand to retreat from the crowds or recreational water sports in the Atlantic waters, Sea Pines Resort Area is a prime Hilton Head destination for beach lovers.


The lush Sea Pines Plantation Forest Preserve is a tranquil and pristine 605-acre wildlife habitat with over 50 lakes and lagoons, forested wetlands, boardwalk trails, fishing docks and bridges and an abundance of wildlife in their natural habitat. The preserve is home to the 4,000 year old Sea Pines Indian Shell Ring, the oldest known archaeological site on Hilton Head Island and the Stoney Baynard plantation ruins.

Natural outdoor adventures abound with guided eco-adventures, alligator tours, hay wagon rides and horseback trails through the pristine Sea Pines Forest preserve.
