Putting together lists of the finest beaches in the world seems to be a kind of cottage industry. It is easy to find any number of sources – from the well-known travel and tourism magazines to obscure websites and private opinion blogs. And no wonder. Who would not enjoy sitting quietly at home and thinking about the cream-colored sand, the soothing surf sounds, and the bone-warming bake of the sun on the shores of a dream?

When we see a list that puts the world’s No. 1 beach on Bora-Bora, or off somewhere in the Turks & Caicos islands, we can’t help thinking that a dream is all there is to such a list. Far more useful is the welcome realization that the beaches right here, on what the most prominent tourism magazines name America’s favorite vacation island year after year, also appear somewhere on any serious list of the finest beaches in the world.

In Easy Reach

Our beaches, golf and tennis, restaurants, and arts and theater scene – they all work together with the overriding presence of our hospitality to make Hilton Head Island America’s favorite. The fact that our Hilton Head beaches are among the best in the world according to any serious source make the proposition all but irresistible.

Add to that our access. Until they have experienced it for themselves, most people don’t realize how easy our Hilton Head Island beaches are to reach. Yes, the Carolina coast is in the South, yet because the Atlantic slants west, we are not only south of New York and Washington, we are equally south of Cleveland and not a far throw from Pittsburgh. In fact, most anyone east of the Mississippi can count the beaches of Hilton Head Island as their very own getaway. Hard to make the same case for Bora Bora.

And a Beach You Can Count On

Decades ago, the desire to make this vacation experience a thing that the family could count on every year made Hilton Head Island the birthplace of plans for ownership that would enable households of all kinds to afford a vacation here every year. Having a place of their own without the expense and responsibility of a freestanding beach house led Hilton Head Island vacationers to pioneer the practical ways to make that happen.

Spicebush at Sea Pines was one of those visionary properties. Today, owning a vacation villa in a neighborhood that’s wrapped in a world-class, multi-million-dollar resort is easier than most folks imagine. Swallowtail owners occasionally make their villas available to rent, and when people find out how little more it takes to own, then many conclude this is a deal too good to let pass.
