Shelter Cove Marina, Hilton Head Island, SC


Guide to Shelter Cove Restaurants, Golf, Tennis, Shopping & Attractions



Shelter Cove Marina is one of the finest ports of call on the East Coast. It's also a great stop for sampling the many resort luxuries of Hilton Head Island and Palmetto Dunes Resort. When you dock at Shelter Cove you are extended privileges and preferred rates at the 1,800-acre Palmetto Dunes resort community. Hotels at Shelter Cove include the Marriott Harbour Point and Sunset Pointe at Shelter Cove and Disney Vacation Club, 3 championship golf courses, the acclaimed PD Tennis Center, miles of beach and dozens of shops and restaurants – all located within a two mile radius. A variety of tasty restaurants in Shelter Cove offer up local seafood, or enjoy a stroll by the marina and enjoy the lovely yachts stationed there.

Shelter Cove's mid-island location on Broad Creek also makes us a great launching spot for other island excursions, but with fireworks during Harbourfest all summer long, there's no better place to have fun than Shelter Cove.
