Everyone in the surrounding areas is digging themselves out of hibernation and planning Spring Break vacations with their eye on the beach. If you’ve outgrown the chaos of a Myrtle Beach Spring Break but still want the sand of a South Carolina beach between your toes, look no further than Hilton Head Island. There are plenty of reasons why you should plan your Spring Hilton Head vacation, but if you need a little convincing, here are a few of our favorite reasons to call Hilton Head home in the Springtime.

The Weather

With highs in the upper 60s and 70s, why wouldn’t you want to bask in the sun that shines down on the beaches of Hilton Head?

You can rent one for every member of your group and take off on any one of the 64 miles of public pathways or nature trails to take in all the beauty this island has to offer.

But don’t worry, you can still take a kayak out for a nice leisurely trip across the water while they whip across the waves on jet skis if you want!
