South Beach Marina on the southwest end of Hilton Head Island is a favorite gathering place for locals and tourists alike. Book fishing excursions and watersports activities here, or check out its shops, bars and restaurants. Don’t be afraid of the roving clowns, animal characters and parrots; kids seem to like them. After a day on the island’s renowned golf courses, settle in for an alfresco sunset meal at the famous Salty Dog Café, where the fish is fresh and the drinks are strong. You’ll soon be singing “Margaritaville” along with the local musicians.
