Every Sunday in June, the place to be is ELA’s Blue Water Grille for their ‘Brunch on the Water’. Relax on their incredible waterfront patio in Shelter Cove and enjoy detectible brunch dishes like Green Eggs and Ham and their homemade Mini Cinnamon Rolls. What makes Brunch at ELA’s extra special is that they have live music performed by Martin Lesch, a very talented local artist. Reservations are recommended.


Sea Turtle Talk

The beaches of Hilton Head Island are home to some incredible wildlife species, including Loggerhead Sea Turtles. Starting in June and running through until the end of August, Hilton Head’s Coastal Discovery Museum give talks about the sea turtles. It’s a great way to learn more about the globally endangered species and find out ways to help protect them while vacationing on Hilton Head. The talks include a visit to the beach to explore the sea turtles nesting locations

The Beach

June is one of the best times to hit the beaches of Hilton Head! The air and the water are warm, but the crowds of July and August haven’t arrived. There are many beaches on the Island to choose from, including many public beaches. Dreissen Beach is great family friendly spot, and if you’re craving a bit of quiet time, venture on over to Alder Lane Beach. The beaches are also a great spot for watching Hilton Head’s stunning sunsets.

Harbour Fest

Fireworks on Beach

Harbour Fest is the one of the events on Hilton Head Island that locals and visitors look forward to most! For two months, Shelter Cove is home to free, nightly entertainment! This year, the festivities kick off on June 17th. The entertainment includes concert performances, food served up by nearby restaurants, bouncy castles for the kids, local arts and crafts and on select nights, fireworks! This June, the fireworks will light up Shelter Cove on the 17th and 24th.
