There's nothing quite like spending a summer day on beautiful Hilton Head Island! Summertime is always so much fun on the Island and there are so many “fun in the sun” activities to choose from, you may have a hard time deciding exactly what to do each day! The summer months in Hilton Head, from June through August, bring hot, sunny, perfect beach weather days with temperatures averaging around 89 degrees and a balmy 72 in the evening. The Island has a fairly humid climate and with the cool ocean breezes, even the hot days are very enjoyable.
One of the best things about a summer vacation on Hilton Head is that you can do as much or as little as you want to during your visit to the Island. For those seeking adventure, take a dolphin cruise, explore our wildlife refuge and hiking trails, go parasailing, or visit nearby Daufuskie Island. Sports lovers will enjoy our championship golf courses, award winning racquet clubs and a friendly game of beach volleyball behind the "Tiki Hut" on South Forest Beach. When you’re ready to relax, you can spend the day lounging at an oceanfront pool or splashing in the calm waters of our pristine sandy beaches! The opportunities and fun never ends! Summer is also a great time to take part in one of our many Island events and festivals. Popular summer festivities include HarbourFest, which features live entertainment seven nights a week, plus food, arts and crafts, fireworks and other activities, The July 4th Independence Day Celebration, Shannon Tanner’s Interactive Family Friendly Shows every night at Shelter Cove Harbour, The Hilton Head Art Festival, The Summer Jams at Shelter Cove Park, and The Summer Exploration Series at the Coastal Discovery Museum. Summertime also means that all of our waterfront restaurants and beach beach bars are open with nightly live entertainment and excellent local seafood.
