While it may seem an impossible task to pick a favorite Hilton Head Island beach, we so bravely stepped up to take the challenge. We considered parking, public bathrooms, sand showers, wheelchair accessibility, lifeguards, whether or not the beach is kid-friendly, and extra local amenities like playgrounds, picnic tables, restaurants and shops. Of course there are winners, but there are really no losers here as each beach has a little something for everyone. So get your swimsuits and flip-flops on, and come visit some of these gorgeous beaches!
