Shore Beach Service

If you have visited Hilton Head Island’s beaches, you are probably familiar with Shore Beach Service. We are on the beach in the lifeguard highchairs, under the red beach patrol umbrellas, or driving the red beach patrol vehicles. If you are new to the island, let us introduce ourselves and help you have a great vacation!

Hilton Head Island is blessed with some of the safest waters on the east coast, as gentle sloping beaches and offshore sandbars generally create calm surf conditions. However, always be cautious in the ocean and please follow our beach safety tips and beach rules to ensure a safe and enjoyable day.
