Why Hilton Head?
Welome to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina USA.
I still remember when I first came to Hilton Head Island twenty years ago. I decided to drive through
the night with cups of coffee keeping me awake. I reached the Island early in the morning.
This is what I saw and fell in love!
ago there was no fancy highway leading to the Island so when I was getting close and surroundings were
somewhat shabby, I started to wonder...
But all my doubts dissolved when I crossed the bridge and saw
the sign Hilton Head Island and was welcomed by palm trees and beautifully maintained land.
I found a beach and this is the moment I will never forget. I was standing in the middle of
the wide, white sand beach looking at the lazy ocean waves and the sunrise. I was totally mesmerized
and felt really happy maybe for the first time in my life. I thought "This is home".

Ten years later, after several visits, walking all the beaches, checking out several
vacation rentals and hotels, enjoying fabulous restaurants, playing golf and tennis, I moved to
Hilton Head Island permanently.
Now I enjoy living here, it's been ten years already,
but I will always remember my first time here and how I felt.
I hope my website will serve as a Hilton Head Island guide or even a directory helping visitors to enjoy exploring this beautiful island!
