The Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Promise

Whether you're visiting the Lowcountry or here to stay, this is your home.

And that’s why we know you’ll want to help us protect this beautiful, sensitive coastal environment.

Ways You Can Help

Leave nothing behind

Enjoy the beach and leave behind nothing but your footprints. Conveniently-placed trash receptacles help keep the beach clean.


Make it easier for sea turtles and their hatchlings to navigate the shoreline by flattening your sand castles and filling in those holes you dug when you’re done with your day at the beach.


Please stay on the path. Walking on our beautiful sand dunes can damage or destroy the sea oats and other flora keeping our dunes from washing away.

Sand dollar

Finding sand dollars, starfish and other sea life along the shore is exciting. Enjoy discovering them and please leave these coastal creatures undisturbed in their natural habitat.

Social distance

Maintain a minimum 6-foot distance from others in public spaces and local businesses. 


Wash your hands regularly or use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol.

Wear a mask

Wear a face mask for the safety of yourself and others.

Sneeze or cough into your elbow

Sneeze or cough into a 
tissue, cloth, or 
your elbow.
