When I first saw this list of the best beach bars on Hilton Head Island from The Island Packet, the first thing that came to mind was “Why haven’t I featured Hilton Head Island more on the blog?” With enough beach bars to choose at least the seven best from, surely I had a good excuse for not find a decent enough story about this South Carolina destination. Alas, I can’t offer one up because there’s just little news coming from this island about its beach bars.
The Island Packet changed that, though, with a list of the best beach bars on the island along with what you can expect to find at each one. Included among the list are Jamaica Joe’s where you’ll be able to enjoy live music Thursday-Sunday in the summer and the Tiki Hut which features live music every day plus sand volleyball courts for those of you who require activity to work off the calories from all the sugary drinks you’ll be enjoying.
Also included in Pool Bar Jim’s, which, unsurprisingly, is found poolside at the Sea Crest Resort. As with any great beach bar, the popularity of Pool Bar Jim’s can be directly attributed to its owner/bartender, Jim Lisenby. For those of you craving a little sand with your pool water, have no fear – the beach, just like one of Pool Bar Jim’s delicious cocktails, is just a few steps away.
Have you been to Hilton Head Island and have a favorite beach bar there? If so, let me know in the comments and we might be able to feature them in one of our “Beach Bar Spotlight” articles. Cheers!
