Hilton Head Island Beach Regulation Reminders

  • No alcohol (liquor), beer or wine.
  • No dogs or other animals are allowed on the beach between 10 am & 5 pm, starting the Friday before Memorial Day thru Labor Day.
  • No shovels made of materials other than wood and/or plastic; the shovels must be less than 30”(L) and 6”(W).
  • No holes greater than 12” deep. Please fill in holes before you leave. This helps protect our beach visitors from getting injured if they step in a hole and our sea turtles from getting trapped or injured if they fall in a hole.
  • No tents, towels, chairs, coolers or other personal belongings should be left overnight.
  • Harming, harassing or removing any live beach fauna (sea turtles, birds, or their eggs; sand dollars, conchs, starfish, etc.)
