Imagine an 800+ acre gated resort community, nestled in the center part of Hilton Head Island, adjacent to North Forest Beach, near the famous Coligny Plaza area. This prime community is none other than Shipyard Plantation. Shipyard offers a pristine setting full of moss-draped live oaks, winding canopied roads, and beautiful coastlines. Not only is this among the most stunning plantations on Hilton Head, but it is also home to the Van de Meer Shipyard Tennis Resort, which happens to be one of the top ranked tennis facilities in the world!
This stunning plantation is any beach goer’s paradise. Shipyard has a small access point and a beach club at the northeastern edge of the property. The coastline is full of natural beauty, containing well-kept sand dunes, white sandy beaches, and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. The beach is a great place to soak up the sun, take walks, bike rides, or just take in the serenity of the Island’s coastline.
The Shipyard Golf Club, former home of the Hilton Head Seniors International, offers 27 holes of golf. The golf course is one of the best courses on the island. Golfers of all abilities love the pristine views, unique layouts, and well-manicured conditions of the course.
For the outdoor lovers, there are miles of paved biking trails that wind along canopied paths all throughout the plantation. The trails are flat and easily enjoyed by runners, walkers, and bikers of all ages. Hilton Head Island, as a whole, prides itself on being a biking community. It’s a flattering feature to know that you can park your car when you arrive, and bike around instead of having to drive.
Shipyard is very private and quiet. The gated community only allows for guests and residents to come in and out of the plantation. This not only keeps the traffic to a minimum, but also allows for the grounds to be perfectly maintained and kept. Talk about a picturesque lagoon system…Shipyard has it! That is among many of the things that give this top-notch resort plantation character and prestige.
There are plenty of lodging accommodations in Shipyard. From various types of rental properties, to the recently renovated Sonesta Resort, visitors have no trouble finding the perfect vacation rental property inside of the planation. There are multiple condo, villa, townhome, and house rentals to choose from. So choosing the type of property, size, and view comes with quite a palate of choices. For the resort-goer, the Sonesta Resort is located on a stretch of beach, adjacent to the tennis center and golf club.
There are several dining and shopping options within Shipyard. The Sonesta Resort has several restaurants located in the hotel, as well as a gift shop. However, there are plenty more dining and shopping options within close proximity to Shipyard at Coligny Plaza, Harbour Town, and Shelter Cove. Hilton Head Island remains as one of the top vacation destinations in the South East. Aside from how beautiful this island is to look at, it has something for everyone to enjoy. The endless choices in restaurants, shopping, activities, and entertainment are all within reach of Shipyard.
