Shelter Cove Harbour is the biggest deepwater marina on Hilton Head Island. It encloses the end of Broad Creek at the island's center across Highway 278 from the entrance to Palmetto Dunes Plantation. Shelter Cove is a major tourist attraction, and it hosts impressive local and world-traveled boats and yachts, has many fine restaurants and shops, and is the site of some of the island's annual festivals. Among events held at Shelter Cove Harbour are HarbourFest, an annual summer-long celebration known for its fabulous fireworks displays every Tuesday night from May to August, and WineFest, the biggest outdoor wine-tasting event on the East Coast. Shelter Cove Harbour has 665 high-rise villas overseeing the marina.
