In order to preserve our beautiful Island and to continue to provide our residents and visitors with a unique wide stretch of sandy shoreline, a beach renourishment project commenced in June 2016.
Although work will commence this summer, high density visitor-oriented beaches along central shoreline will not be impacted until fall. See our Project Timeline Map .
During the 5 month renourishment project construction operations must proceed around the clock and will, on average, move along the shoreline at a rate of about 200 to 300 feet per day. Please note that only approximately 1,000 feet of beach access will be restricted per day, leaving all remaining Hilton Head Island beach available for use.
