North Forest Beach
At the South end of Hilton Head Island lies two beauties separated by Coligny Circle – the North Forest Beach and the South Forest Beach. North Forest Beach, a non-gated residential area, was one of the first communities to spring up on Hilton Head Island.
It was mainly comprised of second homes.
Today, however, the plantation is made up of full-time residences and vacation homes for those traveling to Hilton Head Island. The latter is due to its proximity to shopping and restaurants as well as its convenient beach access. With each lot within the Forest Beach area being 600 yards away from the Atlantic Ocean.
Properties developed around the Forest Beach area have to respect Hilton Head Island’s stringent building and zoning codes and also have to be uniform in standard. This allows the whole Forest Beach community – both North and South Forest Beach – maintain its charm.

The residential section of the North Forest Beach was nicknamed ‘the bird streets’ and for very obvious reasons. For instance, one of the tiny sandy lanes, Dove Street, is well-known for its decorations over the Christmas period while Jacana Street acts as a gathering place for dedicated surfers as it has the best wave patterns that Hilton Head Island has.
Besides, it also has a wide range of living accommodations that include single-family homes, timeshares, hotel/motels, a couple of condos and multi-family buildings. Most of the properties in North Forest Beach are used for income generation.
