The marina is under construction and is closed to all boats. The view is nice and there are a lot of shops to visit. The Christmas decorations are pretty. The lighthouse is still open and provides a great view of the harbor.

Go visit Shelter Cove for your shopping needs, and eating. This is a great time to take the kids for seeing some lights and seeing Santa Clause

We have visited Shelter Cove for the last 30 years, having owned a villa there. It is better than ever now ! We no longer own the villa but we have our boat in a slip. Jason Wheeler is the best dock master of many we have met in many marinas we have visited all over the East Coast. Jason... More

We find Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina to be a First Class Hilton Head Island Attraction. We visit Hilton Head for six - seven weeks per year, and always spend a few days viewing this multi-million dollar attraction. Marina, shop, restaurants, and views.

We went here for happy hour and to see the sunset. There are a few places to enjoy happy hour and the sunset here is really pretty. Some of the restaurants have live music and there is a very different feel at each place. If you are in the area in the late afternoon, this is a good spot to... More

Whether dining at one of the fine restaurants or attending a special event, Shelter Cove is a pleasant place. There are many nice shops, too. Sunsets are beautiful over the water. The only downside is when special event draws a crowd. Getting in and out, as well as parking can be challenging.
