Shelter Cove Harbour is one of the most popular destinations on the island. The large Neptune statue, which doubles as a sundial, welcomes visitors to a variety of shops and activities. On summer nights, Shelter Cove Harbour even hosts a spirited HarbourFest where families can enjoy time together browsing booths and partaking in fun outdoor games.
Shopping in Shelter Cove
Shelter Cove Harbour is home to a multitude of shops with a variety of items. From shirts and bags at Camp Hilton Head to holiday decorations from Christmas on the Harbour, there is truly something for everyone to take home.
The shops aren’t the only thing with variety. Shelter Cove Harbour also has multiple restaurants for every taste bud out there. There is fine dining, as well as relaxed environments serving all kinds of flavors, from fresh seafood to Mexican, Mediterranean and Italian dishes.
Shelter Cove offers more than just shopping and dining; it contains a variety of water sports rentals and other activities for anyone looking to head out on the water. All rentals are made through the Palmetto Dunes Resort, but there are local businesses, such as Outside Hilton Head, offering a more private rental experience.
At the center of all the shops is the marina, where Palmetto Dunes and the Disney Resort meet. Not only is it home to an array of big boats, but it’s also around the marina where you can find fun water activities, including kayaking.
The expansive marina has 178 boat slips for boats up to 135 ft. in length. The dock is full-service and has fueling as well. Dock slip reservations come with cable, water, and a telephone jack. The general store, located in the shopping area just outside the marina, offers the basic boating necessities. Boats can easily access the marina from the Intracoastal Waterway through Calibogue Sound. Bike reservations can be made online for anyone looking to travel outside of the marina.
