The Town of Hilton Head Island wants everyone to be able to enjoy the beach! We have made our beach more accommodating with accessibility features.
The Town is making it easier for people with disabilities to access the beach with the launch of its new beach wheelchair program.
Through this free service, we are providing wheelchairs for residents and visitors who have a disability that limits their ability to get on the beach.
Initially, four wheelchairs will be available for use at Islanders Beach Park in Folly Field and at Coligny Beach Park.

All of the Town's public beach parks and accesses have beach matting installed for easier beach access.
Beach matting provides a rigid, non-slip surface for wheelchairs, pedestrians, strollers, beach wagons, bikes, etc., that that makes going over sand easier.
The beach matting extends out to the hard sand at the high tide line to allow for more mobility up and down the beach.
A new pavilion at Islanders Beach Park gives visitors with disabilities or other special needs a chance to enjoy the beach.
Located next to the existing boardwalk at Islanders Beach Park at 94 Folly Filed Road, the pavilion features a wide entry way to accommodate wheelchairs and built-in benches for seating.
Anyone visiting the beach park can use the pavilion, but it has been specifically sized and designed for individuals who have a disability that limits their access to the beach.
