Bicycling on the Beaches of Hilton Head Island

Bicycling on the beach here on Hilton Head Island is one of my favorite beach activities.  The weather is perfect today and expected to be the same for the next few days.  If you are on vacation I hope you brought your bike or plan to rent one.  We have 12 miles of beautiful hard packed sand for beach riding and also over 50 miles of bike paths through out the island.  Take off on your bike and explore the islands beauty while enjoying the ocean breeze on your face.  Find the closest access to the beach and you will be on your way for a fun experience.  You will likely see dolphin jumping and swimming just off the shore, Pelicans diving for fish or skimming gracefully inches above the ocean, shrimp boats trolling by and of course an assortment of shells along the sand.

Gotta go, I am off to the beach on my bike!  Keep in mind you should plan your beach bike trip on Hilton Head Island at low tide or at least 3 -4 hours after high tide.  There are numbered markers along the way so be sure to notice the number on the marker where you start.  The markers are spaced every 1/8 mile.

Have fun!bike small

Create your own memories on Hilton Head Island

With over 12 miles of beaches on Hilton Head Island you are able to enjoy the beach “doing your own thing”.  This is my grandson at the end of a fun day exploring and being the captain of his own boat!  On our bike ride earlier in the day we enjoyed watching dolphin jump and play in the waters just off the beach!  Hilton Head Island beaches have hard packed sand at low tide – perfect for bike rides!Jackson 1

Sun dogs on Hilton Head Beach

Walking the beach on Hilton Head Island at sunset is one of my favorite activities!  The sunset is always amazing and occasionally spectacular!  I caught this double sun dog on the beach near South Forest Beach recently.  Sun dogs are created when light interacts with ice crystals in the atmosphere, they appear as tiny rainbows or mini suns. Sun dogs are best seen and are most conspicuous when the sun is low. Hope you have a chance to catch a great sunset or sunrise during your Hilton Head Island vacation.
