Although Hilton Head Island has no official downtown, visitors consider
Coligny Circle in Forest Beach the hub of beachside activity. Southern Living refers to Coligny Beach as
Carolina's Most Accessible Beach. Within the area, the Beach Park & Market and Coligny Plaza offer vacationers great options for dining, shopping, entertainment, or just running the sand through their toes.
The Beach Park provides clean restrooms, showers, changing facilities, and an unpredictable fountain that has become a favorite for scampering children with the giggles.
to the park, the Beach Market has ocean-side shops specializing in beachwear and resort outfits. Dining options range from white-tablecloth service featuring Asian cuisine to restaurants with all-American menus. Wear a fancy sundress or stay with flip-flops
and cutoffs … there’s an option for everyone.
Hilton Head Island’s foremost commercial district is Coligny Plaza. For over forty years, visitors have flocked to this quaint, open air mall for a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and live entertainment. This plaza is home to Piggly-Wiggly, the island’s
first grocery store. Gene Martin opened it as the Red & White in the 1970s and he still runs the store. Other merchants offer shoppers a large selection of apparel, jewelry & gemstones, home décor, toys & kites, hardware, beach paraphernalia, candles, fudge,
and more. The restaurant choices are endless and specialties include: steaks, seafood, pasta, eggs, subs, ice cream, daiquiris, pastries, gourmet coffee, or just hamburgers & fries. During the summer, toddlers enjoy outdoor puppet shows and the tweeners participate
in Glee-like song and dance numbers.When
the sun sets, adults gravitate to several clubs that feature live music.
