If you’re used to gulf coast beaches, this is as good as it gets for the east coast. The water isn’t clear but the sand at this beach is great- white and fluffy! We parked at the public lot near the entrance (free!) and took...More

12 miles of pristine coastline, and Tiki Hut is the only place to drink on the beach in Hilton Head Island. Equal parts local hideaway and the place to be, Tiki Hut offers 365 days of live music a year, with two different acts per day. The music calendar is curated with an eye for detail and an ear for guest preference. In a given week, musical acts range from reggae and funk, to country and top 40 cover bands. The expansion of Tiki Hut includes more cover - the hut itself has been expanded to twice its capacity. The space - open to guests for socializing, relaxing, and watching the pros play volleyball - hosts monthly themed Full Moon Parties and multi-day holiday events right on the beach. Guests enjoy the only toes in the sand, drinks in hand experience on Hilton Head Island, served by a famous crew of bartenders, some of whom have eclipsed their 20th anniversary behind the bar. Nosh on locally-sourced bar food from Chef Tim Nelson, who oversees Beach House's F&B operations. Iconic since 1977, a visit to Tiki Hut is not complete without taking home a shirt and bragging rights that you were here.
