Forest Beach is one of Hilton Head Island’s oldest and most unique residential neighborhoods, comprised of two main areas: North Forest Beach and South Forest Beach. Many locals refer to Forest Beach as “Downtown Hilton Head,” with dozens of specialty shops, restaurants, boutiques, and bars, Forest Beach acts as a hub for tourists and residents alike. There’s always something fun and exciting to do in this ocean community which also includes Coligny Plaza!
North Forest Beach includes the area from Coligny Circle to Shipyard Plantation’s Sonesta Resort. South Forest Beach includes the area between Coligny and Sea Pines’Resort’s Ocean Gate. Homes located in both the North and South Forest Beach areas are within 600 yards of the Atlantic Ocean. Public beach access at the Coligny Beach traffic circle draws thousands of people to the sandy shores each year. Unlike many of the Island’s plantation communities, Forest Beach is open to the public.
Though Forest Beach contains many homes built in the 1950s, many have been extensively renovated over the years, making for a wide variety of living accommodations. From hotels and timeshares to single-family homes and condominiums, there is something for everyone in Forest Beach. The Forest Beach Property Owners Association provides an optional membership for its property owners.
Forest Beach is located on the South End of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
