Once you cross the bridge to Hilton Head Island, it will be about 10 miles to the Sea Pines Traffic Circle. When you are approaching the circle, stay in the left lane or you will end up going down Palmetto Bay Road. Proceed half-way around the circle and take the second exit, which will be Greenwood Drive.

Another option, the Cross Island Expressway, (toll is $1.25) is two miles from the bridge to the island. The expressway exits onto Palmetto Bay Road. Follow Palmetto Bay Road to the Sea Pines Traffic Circle and take your first right onto Greenwood Drive. This is a great timesaver.

You will need to stop by the Sea Pines Welcome Center to pick up an entry pass. This is a large building on your right-hand side about 1/4 mile off the circle. Pull into the complex and follow the signs that say "Guest Passes" around the back of the building. They have a drive-up window where you will give them your name and they will issue a gate pass that will be good for your entire stay. If you arrive after the pass office closes, the guard at the secuity gate should have your name on a list for entry.

When you pass the guard gate, stay on Greenwood Drive. You will come to another, smaller traffic circle (Fraser Circle). Go half - way around and continue on Greenwood Drive, following the signs to South Beach. When Greenwood Drive ends, turn right onto South Sea Pines Drive and travel about 3 miles to South Beach Marina Village. Pull into the Marina Village and follow the parking lot all the way back. Follow the signs to registration, Suite 107, where you will pick up your keys.
