Located in the heart of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, Stella del Mare is both a peaceful sanctuary and the perfect platform for entertainment. Nestled between the legendary developments of Port Royal Plantation and Palmetto Dunes Resort, the community offers its residents easy access to some of the finest golf, tennis, wildlife, history, fine art, shopping, dining, fishing, boating, theatre and recreation the area has to offer—all within a 10-minute drive from the gates. And just a few paces beyond the dunes, the Atlantic Ocean awaits with temperatures averaging 79° Fahrenheit all summer long.
Life on Hilton Head Island, you’ll discover, may be casual... but our expectations are not. Imagine an island large enough to attract the best national stores and outlets, yet small enough to maintain its own Southern charm and “boutique” sense of place. Where else can you enjoy an authentic German, Italian or French meal (there are well over a hundred restaurants on this 13-mile island), go for a relaxing stroll on the beach, then decide—while still in your sandals—to catch world-renowned musicians performing next door? Care to drop in on an international wine-tasting event? Or would you prefer to catch a sunset dinner cruise to Savannah, Georgia’s famous River Street for cocktails and a night out on the town? Do you enjoy exercising? Beautiful, paved leisure trails await you.
With miles of sugar-sand beaches, dozens of championship golf courses and more than 300 tennis courts, Hilton Head offers a wide range of recreational options for Stella del Mare residents and their guests. Dolphin tours, sunset cruises, sailboat rentals and guided kayaking excursions are just some of the many ways to explore the waters surrounding Hilton Head. The ocean offers a spectacular vantage point from which to experience the magnificence of this unique Lowcountry sea island.
