The Community
Palmetto Dunes l Shelter Cove l Leamington

Nestled in the “epicenter” of beautiful Hilton Head Island are three interconnected communities covering 2,000 acres: Palmetto Dunes, Shelter Cove and Leamington. Each community has their own property owners association. With their abundance of amenities, they form the Island’s most comprehensive oceanfront family residential resort community, one of the finest on the East Coast. Palmetto Dunes offers three miles of newly re nourished, pristine, white, sandy beach on the Atlantic Ocean along with golf, tennis, bike and leisure paths, and our signature 11-mile lagoon system, the second largest in the country. Each unique community offers you an unmatched Quality of Life and a Great Investment .

Most amenities are conveniently located or within walking distant from our resort core, Hotel Circle. It is the perfect family spot as the kids can bike throughout the community without accessing the highway. Beach access for owners and visitors in the community is available at the Dunes House, the Disney Resort Beach Pavilion and on all Tee Road residential streets in Palmetto Dunes. Leisure paths connect the Shelter Cove area with Palmetto Dunes and Leamington via the underpass at the entrance to Palmetto Dunes.

The community offers a unique, 11-mile man-made, navigational lagoon consisting of 80% salt water and 20% brackish water that are controlled by two tide gates of Broad Creek, two stocked freshwater lakes for boating and fishing and several freshwater ponds. This unique lagoon system winds through Palmetto Dunes and Leamington and is one of the largest private lagoon systems in the country.

Hilton Head Outfitters has a complete line of bikes, kayaks, canoes, surfboards, beach chairs/toys, resortwear, fishing rods and equipment. Adjacent to the Outfitters is the Palmetto Dunes General Store which has sundry items, breakfast, lunch, ice cream and groceries. Outside Hilton Head offers watersports at the Shelter Cove Marina.

Unique to the community is the Palmetto Dunes Buggy that provides courtesy transportation to Palmetto Dunes and Shelter Cove.

Across from Palmetto Dunes Resort is Shelter Cove Harbour, the 230-acre Mediterranean-style marina community centered around the 15.5 acre harbour, and is Hilton Head Island’s deepest marina with direct access to the Intracoastal Waterway. It borders Broad Creek on the Island’s sunset side across from Palmetto Dunes.
