Hilton Head Island is known for many wonderful things, great golf, history, wildlife, the arts, and of course, the beaches. Most people who know Hilton Head Island know about our beaches in the Folly Field area, Forest Beach, Palmetto Dunes and Sea Pines.
Most people do not know the well kept secrets of Hilton Head Island’s unknown beaches which include three on the north end of Hilton Head Island; Fish Haul Creek, Mitchelville and Dolphin Head. All three of these are along the Port Royal Sound. The Town of Hilton Head Island constructed parks at both Fish Haul Creek and Mitchelville and during the day have bathroom facilities. These beaches are great for walking, bird watching, fishing and even clamming. Fish Haul and Mitchelville offer a good deal of privacy.
Because they are on the Port Royal Sound, these two beaches are not ideal for swimming. The area around them are very diverse when it comes to ecology. They feature tidal flats, beach and dunes, salt marsh and creeks and maritime forest. Both offer a good history lesson into Hilton Head Islands past, which include a display about the Civil War era Town of Mitchelville.
