What to do in Sea Pines - 22 Things 

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. 

  1. 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.
  2. Collect some mermaid money, or sand dollars. The Sea Pines beaches are rich with this money.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Try your hand at maneuvering a sail kite in the beaches winds.
  6. 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 deer resting.
  7. If the trolley is operating, it is a free enjoyable ride, and a relaxing way to see some parts of Sea Pines.
  8. 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.
  9. Walk the 18th hole of the Heritage Course and feel like the pros do on Sunday afternoon.
  10. Visit the Harbourtown Playground, it is an award winner, and when first built near the tennis stadium was a first of kind.
  11. Have a picnic-there are so many places you may end up having more than one. It sure beats sitting in a restaurant.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. Lawton Stables offers trail rides and hay rides.
  15. Want to experience what racing in the Americas Cup is like? Do a sail on the "Stars and Stripes"
  16. 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
  17. Catch a sunset from the Quarter Deck. If the steel drum band is playing you are in for a treat.
  18. 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.
  19. Walk around Harbourtown and peak into the shops or just enjoy natures aroma of honey suckle and confederate jasmine/
  20. Take an evening cruise and enjoy the night life and music.
  21. Take a tour to Savannah or Daufuski.
  22. Visit South Beach Marina Village

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.
