Who doesn’t love a sunset? One of the most beautiful natural occurrences we can witness daily (unless it’s raining, of course) is made even more beautiful right here on Hilton Head Island. Sure, we might be a little biased, but if you want to see some of the best sunsets in Hilton Head, check out some of these spots. We guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Skull Creek Boathouse

An island favorite, Skull Creek Boathouse has a great porch and outdoor patio to view sunsets. This is an excellent spot for sushi and seafood, so check it out for dinner with a spectacular show of colors as the sun sets one evening.

Harbour Town Lighthouse

The Harbour Town Lighthouse is an iconic historical landmark and has some of the best sunset views here in Hilton Head. It sits on the southern tip of the island, and when you’re up in the lighthouse, you’ll find panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. When the sun sets, you’ll be treated to a kaleidoscope of colors as it reflects on the water.

Squire Pope Community Park

Over on the north side of the Island, the Squire Pope Community Park is perfect for catching a peaceful, quiet sunset with that special someone. It’s not the typical tourist spot, so you won’t be surrounded by crowds, and if you’re feeling adventurous, you can launch a kayak off the pier to view the sunset from out on the water.

Pinckney Island Refuge

If you have seniors in your group or people with disabilities, head over to Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge. It’s secluded but accessible, making it a perfect spot for everyone to get the chance to see a once-in-a-lifetime sunset here in Hilton Head.

Old Oyster Factory

Another great spot to grab dinner with a view is the Old Oyster Factory. Not only can you catch beautiful sunsets from this local favorite, but they also feature live music on the back deck.
