Updated: Sep 19, 2019

If you are planning an elopement or small wedding on a Hilton Head Island beach, you may be wondering what the difference between the beaches are. Coligny is in the heart of the resorts and tourist area. Fish Haul Beach is the most secluded. But what about Burke Beach and Folly Field Beach?

And of course, the view of the beach!!
