Water Fun Walking Distance from Oceanfront Hilton Head Rentals

Oceanfront Hilton Head rentals put you front and center when it comes to water fun. Known for its eco-friendly development, Hilton Head, South Carolina boasts many cultural and recreational opportunities for visitors to this popular Beaufort County destination. Located just 20 miles from Savannah, this island is home to 12 miles of beaches along the Atlantic Ocean. This makes it a premiere spot for getting wet - whether in the ocean, at water parks, or in private pools. In fact, your Hilton Head rental very likely features its own swimming pool, if this is one of your desired amenities. But if not, head to the coast for some great water sports like jet skiing and para sailing.

To be close to the action, you're going to want to choose an oceanfront rental within walking distance to all of this water fun, whether that involves salt water fishing, sailing, sunset cruises or the ever-popular crabbing. Snorkeling isn't the best here due to low visibility, but lots of other things will grab your attention, and your kids'.

Kids Clubs

There are many programs going on for the little ones, such as the Kids' Water Fun Day for ages 4 to 13. This involves a boat ride, crabbing and fun games to keep the youngsters active. Also, the SS Pelican features magician boat rides on certain days of the week. Camp Castaway is a program offered by Hilton Head Crowne Plaza Resort for ages 3 to 12, and Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort also boasts activities for kids and teens, such as the Discovery Club.

Charters and Tours

Fishing and sailing charters are readily available on the island, as are guided tours and rentals. The beach front area has many companies to choose from, depending on your budget, personal preference and time constraints.

The Simple Pleasures

    Of course, just playing on the beach is a fun activity in itself. There are plenty of little tidal pools, rocks and beach areas to keep kids busy. Head to Burkes Beach, Islanders Beach Park, Mitchelville Beach Park, Driessen Beach Park and more to experience the sun and sand at its finest. Some have parking fees, while others are free. Some even require annual beach passes. Be sure to book a condo or beach house right near the beach, so that getting down to the shore is not a big hassle, especially with children. From dolphin tours to canoeing to kayaking, Hilton Head won't disappoint.

    Homes near the Water

    Some of the homes near the water in Hilton Head are simply amazing. Multiple bedrooms, balconies, heated pools, air conditioning, full kitchens: these are just a few of the amenities you can choose from when booking an oceanfront rental. Some are right on the beach, or a couple of streets back. Of course, you can go with something a bit more understated; it's all up to you and your budget. Vamoose can help you narrow the field down with its convenient Hilton Head rental search feature.
