What to do in Sea Pines - 22
The other day while sitting in a rocking chair at the
Harbourtown Marina enjoying the seventy degree winter weather, I met two Sea
Pines visiting guests. It was the first day of their first visit, and we started
talking about what there was to do while staying in Sea Pines. They knew about
the golf and tennis, but had no idea there is so much more. Some of the things
we touched upon, you may want to try.
- Birding, there are more than 125 species of birds that
call the Hilton Head Island and Sea Pines home.
Grab some binoculars and a camera and watch a great blue heron or pelican eat.
- Collect some mermaid money, or
sand dollars. The Sea Pines beaches are rich
with this money.
- Wild life viewing is a must. If you are lucky you may
catch the dolphin beaching themselves for dinner down in South Beach. Want
something spooky—take a flash light one night and shine it on the lagoons.
Those beady red eyes staring back at you are alligators. They are good to
watch, but do not feed them.
- Take a stroll thru the Sea Pines Forest Preserve, and if
you feel lucky drop a line into one of the fresh water lakes to catch a 10#
lunker bass. No live bait is allowed, it is too easy as it is. Not into
fishing visit the shell ring that dates back thousands of years, or simply
enjoy the quiet of a maritime forest.
- Try your hand at maneuvering a sail kite in the beaches
- Do bike cruise thru the resort. While on the bike, stop
at the Stoney-Baynard Ruins and envision the plantation life pre 1861. Take a
coast thru Deer Island and onto Calibogue. If you are quiet, you may see some
- If the trolley is operating, it is a free enjoyable
ride, and a relaxing way to see some parts of Sea Pines.
- Climb the 110 steps of the candy striped lighthouse.
There are some excellent views toward Daufuski. At the top there is a web cam
so tell your friends back home when you will be on.
- Walk the 18th hole of the Heritage Course and
feel like the pros do on Sunday afternoon.
- Visit the Harbourtown Playground, it is an award winner,
and when first built near the tennis stadium was a first of kind.
- Have a picnic-there are so many places you may end up
having more than one. It sure beats sitting in a restaurant.
- Do a beach beach discovery tour and learn about the turtles
and their nesting habits. When was the last time you built a sand castle?
- Try your hand at surf casting. If you feel energetic try
your hand with a casting net. You may find some shrimp. Or, get some string a
chicken neck and go after some crabs.
- Lawton Stables offers trail rides and hay rides.
- Want to experience what racing in the Americas Cup is
like? Do a sail on the "Stars and Stripes"
- As one would expect there are all types of water sorts
available. Kayaking, parasailing, water skiing, sailing, motoring are a few of
them. If you have never experienced these before do not worry as there are
some excellent instructors.- and guides if you do not want to venture alone
- Catch a sunset from the Quarter Deck. If the steel drum
band is playing you are in for a treat.
- During the summer listen to Greg Russell. He puts o a
superb family concert, and has been
appearing under the Liberty Oak for 30 years.
- Walk around Harbourtown and peak into the shops or just
enjoy natures aroma of honey suckle and confederate jasmine/
- Take an evening cruise and enjoy the night life and
- Take a tour to Savannah or Daufuski.
- Visit South Beach Marina
All this to do with in the gates
of Sea Pines, let alone the golfing, tennis and playing around the beach. See
how many you can fit in during your next visit to the Sea Pines Resort.
