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.
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.
Shore Beach Service provides the beach patrol for Hilton Head Island’s 13.5 miles of beach. The beach patrol includes about 80 lifeguards from across the country and around the world. As a member of the South Atlantic region of the United States Lifesaving Association (USLA) since 1989 and a Certified Agency of the USLA for Open Water Lifeguarding since 1995, our lifeguards are held to the USLA’s high standards of training. We are always looking for physically fit individuals with outstanding customer service skills to join our team.
If you have visited shorebeach.com before, you probably notice our new site design. We hope you find navigating the site much easier. The new design will allow us to be able to keep fresh information on the site. Check the blog periodically so we can keep you updated with happenings on the beach, some beach safety tips, and other information.
On May 1st we had our first "Beach Safety" field trip of the season, with over 90 kids from 4 classes at the Hilton Head Early Childhood Center, Hiton Head's public kindergarten. The kids learned about how the Beach Patrol can help them stay safe on the beach. Two groups of voluteers from the classes did a great job acting out what the lifeguards do when anyone gets lost on the beach. All of the kids were great listeners, and should all remember to find a lifeguard on the beach if they ever get lost. We look forward to having 8 more clsses of kindergartners for field trips next week!
