Things To Do While Staying In Shelter Cove

Back to Blog

When it comes to the question, “What should we do while on vacation?” Look no further than Shelter Cove! Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina features waterfront dining, shopping, and endless entertainment all year long.

Although Hilton Head Island is known for its lush beaches, pristine golf courses, and endless amounts of tennis courts…any local or frequenting tourist will tell you that Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina is among a top Hilton Head Island treasure. It simply tops the best of Hilton Head’s list time after time. This is certainly a one-stop spot for all that one could want to do during their Island stay. From beautiful views of the Broad River, waterfront dining, fishing excursions, guided kayaking tours, live entertainment, and unique shopping… you will find it hard to not feel completely fulfilled after visiting Shelter Cove.

Being the Island’s largest deep water marina, Shelter cove is able to provide a variety of options for getting up close and personal with the water. A popular choice is chartering boats for offshore/inshore fishing. The charter captains provide all of their guests with a professional, unique, and personal fishing experience. The Captain Hook party boat is also one of the favorites. Who doesn't love gathering on a boat to have some fun cruising around the waters? Taking guided kayak or paddle board tours is a must do! Getting to see the natural beauty of the coast, bird watching, and dolphin sightings are a sure guarantee during these tours.

Your “to do” list may center itself around shopping. If so, the shops are full of unique gems that will send you home with new clothing, accessories, or local trinkets to fill your shopping bag. The shops are full of items that fit any style and budget.

Dining is a must while visiting the Shelter Cove area. The waterfront restaurants not only supply stunning views of the marina and harbour, but fulfill the taste buds of everyone. The assortment of food choices makes it easy to satisfy even the “pickiest” of eaters. San Miguel’s Mexican Café, Ocean Grille, Little Venice, and Parrot Cove Café provide all different types of menu choices. Don’t forget Kingfisher Seafood and Scott’s Fish market if you’re a seafood lover! Do you have a sweet tooth? If so, the Gourmet Gallery is famous for its decadent fudge…YUM!

One of the most popular highlights of Shelter Cove that happens during the summer months is HarbourFest. This is a summer-long, nightly festival that provides even more fun for the entire family. Food, musical entertainment, arts and crafts are offered. This also includes nightie fireworks every Tuesday evening. The firework shows begin at sunset, with a very special Fourth of July show. One that is a yearly Hilton Head Island tradition.

Because the fabulous Shelter Cove is so easy to fall in love with, it offers an array of lodging. There is a wide variety of villas, many with waterfront views, that are for sale and rent! You can either stay for a while…or stay forever! Regardless, an area like this is one that you may never want to leave.
