Driessen Beach is a lovely beach that is often less crowded. It has public restrooms, a large parking lot and the boardwalk to enter the beach. It is a great sand beach and a perfect spot for an afternoon on the beach.

While visiting Hilton Head, we went to this beach later in the day. It has a nice parking lot that you have to pay for, but was very cheap and worth it in my opinion (better than trying to parallel park along a highway). There...More

Each time I come to the Island, my kids and I go to Driessen Beach Park. We tried Coligny, but it's just way too crowded with nowhere to park. This is off of 278 and not as crowded, with convenient pay parking. The park portion...More
