Oceanfront Palmetto Dunes and its sister, deepwater development, Shelter Cove Harbour, are centrally located in what is popularly referred to as mid-Island, equal distance between the south end of the Island – including Coligny Circle and Sea Pines – and the north end, which includes many fine shopping, dining and recreational opportunities. Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove Harbour are situated directly across from one another. Hilton Head’s main thoroughfare, Hwy. 278, separates the two distinct communities. Complementary shuttles are available between the two areas, transporting residents and visitors from harbourfront to the beach.
In addition to private and rental homes and condominiums, 2,000-acre Palmetto Dunes is also home to two, full-service, four-star hotels; the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort and the Hilton Head Marriott Resort & Spa. Three world-class golf courses, a nationally ranked tennis facility and multiple water sport and leisure activities are in abundance in Palmetto Dunes. Palmetto Dunes has two security gates operating 24 hours a day. Access into the private residential areas, as well as the resort areas, is strictly controlled.
The 230-acre Mediterranean style Shelter Cove Harbour village offers a full array of shopping, dining, water sport activities, boat slips and condominiums above commercial space reminiscent of a European Village.
