5 Summer Activities to Try in Hilton Head This Summer
1. Relax on the Beach
If you love lounging in the beautiful weather and enjoying the sounds of the water, then a day spent relaxing on the beach may be just what you need to welcome summer in South Carolina! With 14 miles of beaches to explore, there is no limit to what you can do during your relaxing outing at the beach. Once you’ve tired of relaxing in the sun, be sure to take a stroll with friends, or if you’re feeling adventurous, rent a bike and head out for a ride.
2. Take Up Sailing
Have you ever wanted to become a master of the open water? The Atlantic coast is a great place to test your sea legs and learn the art of ocean sailing. Whether you’re interested in someday purchasing your own sailboat, or you’d simply like to head out on a chartered boat for a day trip or two, sailing is a great way to get out and enjoy the beautiful scenery in Hilton Head this summer.
3. Go Swimming
Whether you’re a fan of frolicking in the ocean, or you’d prefer to swim laps in the indoor pool at The Cypress of Hilton Head, swimming is a great way to cool down and stay fit during the summer months. Because swimming is a low impact sport, it’s a great exercise for people of all ages and skill levels. If you head out to the beach, make a day of it by packing a picnic and bringing a good book along for when you’re ready to take a break and dry off in the sand.
4. Try Paddleboarding
Feeling like a bit of adventure is in the cards for this summer? Paddleboarding is a fun and exciting water sport option to try this year. While it may seem a bit daring from the shore, paddleboarding is a great way to exercise in the water without over-exerting yourself. It is great for improving your balance, strengthening your core, and exercising the days away in the gorgeous sunshine.
Pro Tip: Rent your gear from a local shop for your first few times out on the water before taking the plunge and investing in your own paddleboard.
5. Start Fishing
If you prefer to spend the long summer days with a comfy chair, a good book, and a fishing pole in the water, then Hilton Head Island during the warmer months will not disappoint. Whether you prefer fresh water fishing or taking the boat out for a fishing trip on the Atlantic, you’re guaranteed to have a great time improving your cast and chasing a record catch this summer. You can go solo for a bit of rest & relaxation or grab a group of pals to keep you company while you wait for a bite!
