This is a must if you are visiting Hilton Head. The shops and boutiques are great but the walk along the marina and docks is spectacular. Since the hurricane wiped out the docks at Harbor Town, the boats have moved here. Just a beautiful place for a leisurely walk. Great patio restaurants as well.

This Marina should have been dredged 5 years ago. It is very shallow at low tide. It is extremely well located in the center of the island, but it takes 50 minutes, all at no wake, to get to the Calibogue Sound

We visited the restaurants here at Shelter Cove Harbour and lighting was VERY poor. Had a difficult time finding anything - signage needs improvement.

Shelter cove is right across from Palmetto Dunes. The Disney resort is next to it. Some very good restaurants and shops. Nice evening walk after dinner.

While in Hilton Head visiting friends they took us here to see the area. Very nice peaceful place with some shops and beautiful views and restaurants. It's worth exploring.

One of the free areas in Hilton Head that you can access for stores and walking along a boardwalk while admiring the many boats at anchor.....a must see.

Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina offers something for everyone. There are so many wonderful shops and restaurants. During the season there are terrific free concerts. Don't miss the Shannon Tanner concerts in the evenings. It is geared for the children but all the adults love it too.

Foggy day and off season. Boats were moved here as the lighthouse marina took a full hit by Matthew. Off season it was quiet. Nice.

Shops and restaurants are good and similar to those on Coligny but the main draw for me is in the summer when the little open-air area has steps/seats filled with children enjoying concerts just for them. There's also a chance to ride a pirate ship and then have kids eat free at Phillys..
