Palmetto Dunes Plantation borders the Atlantic Ocean and is located directly across from Shelter Cove Harbour. Condominiums in Palmetto Dunes include personal residences as well as vacation rental properties. Individually-owned condos in this three-section community may be flats or multi-story townhomes. Vacation rentals are permitted in many of the complexes.
Palmetto Dunes contains two privately gated neighborhoods, the Leamington community and the Mariner’s section. Many condominium complexes allow short term rentals, many condos are ocean front, some border lagoons, golf courses, or beautiful harbor views in Shelter Cove.
The 11 mile lagoon system winds through Palmetto Dunes, providing a preserve for the abundant nature plus beauty and enjoyment for its residents. Unlike anything else on the island and an example for other coastal communities, the lagoon is navigable by kayak and canoe. Bikes, kayaks, canoes and fishing equipment can be rented on-site from the Palmetto Dunes Outfitters.
Named South Carolina’s Golf Course of the Year, the Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course in Palmetto Dunes is widely renowned for its open, inviting layout and spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. Home to one of only two oceanfront holes on Hilton Head Island, this much-loved course offers wide fairways, expansive greens, challenging bunkers and subtle elevation changes. The most wide open of the three Palmetto Dunes layouts, the Jones course changes with the breezes rolling in from the Atlantic Ocean, making every hole play differently when the winds change.
Across the street is Shelter Cove, a part of Palmetto Dunes, surrounding the marina at the headwaters of Broad Creek. A thriving marina community consisting of elegant condominiums, plenty of shopping, dining, and water activities, Shelter Cove has exclusively condo-style accommodations scattered along the rim of the boat harbor. Views are spectacular vistas over the Shelter Cove Marina, with Broad Creek in the near distance.
Palmetto Dunes has two security gates operating 24 hours a day. Access into the private residential areas, as well as the resort areas, is strictly controlled.
