When you enter the beach, there are changing stations, toilets and showers. The beach is wide and is shallow for a long way out. Great for families and couples. You can rent beach chairs and umbrellas. Lots of places to eat close by.

The beach is extremely crowded. The area is very spread out with more upscale shops and restaurants. Much more for the person who likes the upscale rather than typical beach such as Myrtle or Tybee Island.

We visited Coligny Beach every day of our trip to Hilton Head Island. It is a very busy beach, but we did not have any problems finding a place to park or a place to sit our stuff on the beach. Parking is free which is very nice. The sand was so soft, and we didn't have any problems with... More

Great beach. Perfect for singles, couples & families. Offers chair & umbrella rentals. Life guards leave around 5 or so. Crowds leave around that time too

Nice beach but crowded. There are other beaches on the island with smaller crowds. Water temperature was ideal at 90 degrees.

For me personally, there are other places on HH that are less crowded and provide better beach access/experience. If you an early riser though you can catch a great sunrise.

We stayed at a house down the way, but while waiting for the house to be ready went to the public beach. Changing rooms, rest rooms, free wifi, bench swings, fountains for kids to play in and a rubber mat walkway. It was somewhat crowded, but that's to be expected at a public beach. Facilities nice and clean. Plenty of... More

This beach is more crowded than I like because of the public access. It is hard to find a good parking space that is close to the walkway to the beach.

The Coligny beach area has a nice free parking area, a very nice bathhouse, free wifi at the entry area, bench swings. There is a long carpet material to make it easy to take wagons or bicycles or carts or wheelchairs down to the hard packed sand. The beach gets VERY busy on weekends. Love it!
