A nice area to visit, casually walk about the shops and the harbour that houses many expensive craft, particularly after the hurricane took out the Sea Pines Harbour. Several fine restaurants here and we enjoy Bucci's Italian Cuisine for happy hour. A towering 12-foot bronze statue of Neptune, which doubles as a larger-than-life sundial, serves as an iconic symbol of... More

I enjoyed walking around after our Sunday lunch. We looked at the boats and spotted a blue heron perching on top of a boat.

A good place to spend an afternoon shopping or having lunch or a nice evening dinner. Sit by the Marina and have a coffee and pastry at the Hilton Head Social Bakery

Enjoyed the boats big and small around the walk way. Marina apartments with mind bending view. Own nothing but still a priceless experience.

This is a must if you are visiting Hilton Head. The shops and boutiques are great but the walk along the marina and docks is spectacular. Since the hurricane wiped out the docks at Harbor Town, the boats have moved here. Just a beautiful place for a leisurely walk. Great patio restaurants as well.

This Marina should have been dredged 5 years ago. It is very shallow at low tide. It is extremely well located in the center of the island, but it takes 50 minutes, all at no wake, to get to the Calibogue Sound

We visited the restaurants here at Shelter Cove Harbour and lighting was VERY poor. Had a difficult time finding anything - signage needs improvement.

Shelter cove is right across from Palmetto Dunes. The Disney resort is next to it. Some very good restaurants and shops. Nice evening walk after dinner.
