No. 27 Shore Beach, Hilton Head Island, SC
Annual Visitors: 2,200,000
What do you get when you have one of the most beautiful beaches in the world on an island with lots of visitors? Crowds, of course. But you can’t blame them. The hard-packed sand is ideal for joggers and great for beach volleyball and even bike riding. Edged with dunes, live oaks and Carolina pines, it’s a beach lover’s paradise. But it’s no secret.
