Hilton Head Pet Friendly Rentals & Policies

Hilton Head Island has its own dog park. It is in the Chaplin Community Park, located just off William Hilton Parkway between Singleton Beach Road and Burke's Beach Road. The park is completely fenced and "double gated" so you will be able to let your dog off-leash as long as it's not aggressive towards people or other dogs. Hilton Head Island boasts several pet friendly restaurants (many even have a pet menu!) and just in case, there are plenty of Veterinarians who are available in the event of an emergency. Now the whole family can enjoy a fun-filled vacation on Hilton Head.

Please note that these restrictions apply: Properties will allow only dogs older than 1 year with a maximum weight of 40 pounds and must be on a flea maintenance treatment. See below to see exactly which properties are Dog Friendly.

The following are the Town of Hilton Head Island's restrictions regarding animals on the beach:
