The popular resort and residential community known as Palmetto Dunes is located on Hilton Head Island on 1,800 well-preserved acres. Located mid-island, inside the gates are 1012 homes, 1470 villas, three miles of world-famous Atlantic Ocean beaches, 11 miles of winding lagoons, and one of the largest tennis centers on the island with 25 courts. Palmetto Dunes is home to the Hilton Head Marriott Resort and Spa, previously the Hyatt Regency Hilton Head Resort. Also within Palmetto Dunes is the private community of Leamington. Its three public, 28-hole golf courses were designed by PGA favorites George Fazio, Robert Trent Jones, and Arthur Hills. The community ranges from year-round residents to weekend visitors, due to the wide range of lodging available.
Palmetto Dunes contains many amenities as part of its common infrastructure. In addition, there are several clubs and commercial establishments that serve the resort.
As part of our common infrastructure, owners and guests can enjoy:
- Beach access to some of the very best beachfront along the Atlantic Ocean.
- Leisure paths for walking and bicycling along the Queen’s Folly corridor and within the Mariners and Inverness sections.
- An 11-mile lagoon system that meanders through Palmetto Dunes and Leamington. Owners who live on the lagoon can keep their canoes, kayaks, and electric boats at their private docks. Others can rent canoes and kayaks at the Hilton Head Outfitters.
