Shore Beach Service


If you have visited Hilton Head Island’s beaches, you are probably familiar with Shore Beach Service. We are on the beach in the lifeguard highchairs, under the red beach patrol umbrellas, or driving the red beach patrol vehicles. If you are new to the island, let us introduce ourselves and help you have a great vacation!

Hilton Head Island is blessed with some of the safest waters on the east coast, as gentle sloping beaches and offshore sandbars generally create calm surf conditions. However, always be cautious in the ocean and please follow our beach safety tips and beach rules to ensure a safe and enjoyable day.


Beach Rentals


Serving Hilton Head since 1974, Shore Beach Service is the island’s premier beach equipment rental service. We provide the rental of umbrellas and chairs anywhere throughout the beach.


We are the only company on Hilton Head Island that sets up the equipment for you daily, saving you the hassle so you can have a more relaxing and enjoyable vacation. Body boards, sailboats, kayaks and beach cycles are also available at our numerous rental locations on the beach.


We are open for rentals until

late October of 2016!
