Harbour Town Lighthouse Reviews & Ratings
Fun, inexpensive little stop. 4.50$/each to climb the 114 lighthouse steps. Civil war info, Cost Guard memorabilia, & golf course history line the walls & greet you at each level. There's another little gift shop at the top through which you can access the outside of the lighthouse for beautiful views of the harbor. Things to know about the area: It cost us 8$ to buy a 1 day pass to enter the neighborhood/ harbor area. There is parking, but this is a popular place so grab a spot quick! You will likely have to walk a few minutes to get to the harbor. Lots of nice shops surround the lighthouse. Some prices are better than others, so beware. One of the restaurants had live music outside that everyone could hear & enjoy. The harbor is lined with DOZENS of red rocking chairs that make for a nice spot to rest & feel the ocean breeze. There are other activities in the area too like a kids' pirate adventure cruise, knee-boarding, horse riding, & probably more we didn't see, but these all cost $$.
Very nice scenic lighthouse in Harbor Town. There is a pier and various boat cruises you can go on if you have reservations. Lots of little shops and some restaurants. You have to pay $8 to enter Sea Pines to get to Harbor Town. Looks like you could probably ride your bike in and not have to pay . There are bike trails all along. Want to come back and stay right here . Gorgeous!
I love Harbour Town on Sea Pines Plantation. There's plenty to see, some good shopping, a few too many touristy shops, and copious seating to rest and relax. There's also a great playground for the kids. As everywhere on Sea Pines, it's easily accessible by bike path.
I've been going here since I was a kid. A small but fun place on Hilton Head island. $8 admission into Sea Pines(cash only, why?🙄)then 4.50 per adult at light house. It's a fun experience. It's better in the evening. You can get some great sunset pictures there.
Nice hot spot on the island. Very crowded and parking limited. But there is a free trolley service. You have to park very close to a main gate and take a trolley ride. Sea Pines is a very beautiful part of the island. Down side you have to pay a per day access fee of $8 per day to visit if you are not part of the community. Very cool harbor with some cool boats. Crazy Crab was a nice restaurant to visit long wait time at peak hours but service was very quick. Great hush puppies.
