Dana,

Thanks for the TR...I am hungry now!

Does the HHI resort have a dedicated beach close to property, or did you just go to a public beach? How far is the beach from the resort?

All of HHI's beaches are public. But, the Beach House can only be accessed by room key.

It is on 278 about mile north of HHI. Right next to the Red Roof Inn.

It's 'dedicated' in that there is a "Disney Beach House" which offers a pool, bar, counter service restaurant, game room, arcade, rest rooms and parking garage - all available to resort guests only. It is one mile from the main resort. We usually take our bikes, but you can drive or take the resort shuttle.

It is a public beach, as are all 20+ miles of HHI beaches. But in HHI, public does not mean public like the rest of the world. You still can't drive to that area of the beach unless you have a pass to get through gate house. The island of Hilton Head is run like a big club, different resorts have access to different beaches and the island is very strict about development, so it's not like Myrtle with a long string of multi-story hotels.

There are 4 or 5 true 'public beaches' that have a parking lot and access to restrooms on the island, but as Disney guests you don't need to worry much about those.

All the beaches are free, (unlike Jersey pay-per-swim beaches) very wide and there is plenty of space to claim your turf without feeling you are on top of the next family.
