Hilton Head Island feels like a small town in many ways: laid-back, friendly, community-oriented, everyone seems to know each other, or at least be connected through one thing or another. And like any small town, the residents have places off-the-beaten-path or tucked away where they love to go.
Mid-island, in the Folly Field neighborhood, it has a large shady parking area, good restrooms, spacious shower area, playground, picnic tables, and sometimes even refreshments!
But the main attraction is of course the beach! And the well-constructed beach path makes access easy and pleasant. And while it gets crowded here too, there is usually a less hurried, kinda mellow feeling.
Here’s what to do to partake in this local amenity:
If you are a Hilton Head Island resident or property owner you can get a sticker for your car from the Town of Hilton Head…it only costs $30 and is good for 2 years. Totally worth it, since the majority of the parking spaces require it.
But if not, there are 25 metered spaces available on a first-come, first-serve basis. So if you too want to “get away from it all” and have a low-key, small-town experience, head over to Islanders Beach Park.
Oh, and tell them “Beach Properties sent me.”
