Hilton Head named Best Island in America
Dated: September 18 2021
Hilton Head Island was named the #1 Island in America in this year’s Travel + Leisure rankings of the best islands in America.
The beautiful island in southern Beaufort County had been ranked at #3 last year after holding the top spot for years.
“We can be as busy as we like or just relax and take in all the beautiful beaches and sea life,” said one voter, the magazine said.
Travel + Leisure also recommended that families vacationing on the island stay at the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort.
“For a more serene experience, there is the 60-room Inn & Club at Harbour Town, which was recently refurbished and offers tennis and golf,” the magazine said.
Hilton Head is in some pretty good company too.
Also on the 2021 list is Kiawah Island, South Carolina; Amelia Island, Florida; Long Boat Key, Florida; Nantucket, Massachusetts; the Golden Isles in Georgia; Mackinac Island, Michigan; the Florida Keys; Captiva Island, Florida; Sanibel Island, Florida; Outer Banks, North Carolina; and Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
That's pretty special.
Hilton Head had previously held the #1 spot in the continental United States by Travel + Leisure for four years in a row; 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019.
The popular Beaufort County island was also recently named the #1 Island in the U.S. by Conde Nast Traveler...for the 4th year in a row.
