Located in the heart of Hilton Head Island, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort rests along three miles of sparkling white sand Atlantic Ocean beachfront. Revered as one of the finest resort destinations in the world, Palmetto Dunes’ offerings include three championship golf courses (Georgia Fazio, Arthur Hills and Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront), an award-winning tennis center with 25 courts (23 clay and 2 Nova ProBounce), six miles of paved leisure trails which meander through the 1,800-acre resort connecting to the island-wide bicycle trail at the resort’s main entrance, and 11 miles of beautiful winding lagoons which provide a natural preserve for wildlife as well as kayaking and boating enjoyment for residents and guests.
Palmetto Dunes is uniquely positioned as a resort/residential community and contains two privately gated neighborhoods within the main plantation which are comprised of year-round residents and short-term vacationers: Leamington and Mariner’s. Leamington and Shelter Cove offer multiple luxury oceanfront and waterfront villas and condos serving as personal residences as well as short-term vacation and investment rental properties, while Mariner’s is comprised primarily of permanent-resident single-family homes. Additionally, Marriott, Hilton and Disney have luxury resorts within Palmetto Dunes.
Directly across from the main entrance off William Hilton Parkway is Shelter Cove, a 230-acre Mediterranean-style marina community which boasts the island’s deepest yacht basin. Shelter Cove Marina on Broad Creek is comprised of 15.5 acres and contains 170 boat slips. The newest addition to the mix is Shelter Cove Towne Centre. The centre contains upscale retailers, restaurants, trendy shops and national grocer, Kroger. Beautiful restaurants dot the waterfront (there are six waterfront restaurants!), over 20 shops and boutiques, and entertainment such as HarbourFest’s Tuesday Fireworks during the summer make Shelter Cove a must-do on everyone’s list. (Next time you are in the area, drop by our offices…our waterfront offices are right here in Shelter Cove Executive Center!).
Consistently ranked as one of the best family resorts in the United States and Canada, Palmetto Dunes Resort is a favored destination for generations of vacationers. Two security gates operate 24/7 and access to private residential and resort areas is strictly controlled. Acclaimed real estate, activities, amenities, shops and services abound in Palmetto Dunes---the heart and soul of Hilton Head Island. Relax and enjoy!Posted by Christina Galbreath-Gonzalez on
