No matter how you look at it, summer can be pretty hot. But you don’t have to be! Although temperatures in Hilton Head are usually pretty temperate, it does have its share of hot days like just about everywhere else. If you have chosen to vacation on the island, and it turns out you have come into a warm spell, there’s no need to worry. You can find plenty of ways to cool off while you’re in Hilton Head this summer!

Take a Dip in the Ocean

Just because it’s hot doesn’t mean you need to trap yourself inside to sit in air conditioning. Warm weather makes the ocean temperature feel divine. Hilton Head has many beaches, so no matter where you are staying, you will be able to find one well within travel distance for you and your family.

Try a New (or Not-So-New) Water Sport

Vacationing at the beach doesn’t mean you need to spend all your time sunbathing. Get out on the water and try something new, like parasailing, deep water fishing, jet skiing, or kayaking. You can also try your hand (and feet) at paddle boarding. Hilton Head has a nearly endless list of water sports to try.

Refresh Yourself With a Cool Drink

Be sure to stay hydrated during the day when you are outside in hot weather. Your body uses excess water to keep your systems running, so you need to keep those fluids replenished. Nighttime can still retain some daytime heat, so stay hydrated when you go out on the town. Have some fun while you’re at it and enjoy the nightlife.


Don’t get burned out from heat in Hilton Head this summer. Cool off inside or out in the water! Summer is all about finding the best ways to stay cool.
