Plan Your Visit

The Rear Range Hilton Head Island Lighthouse is located in the Leamington neighborhood of Palmetto Dunes Resort. It is between the 5th and 15th greens of the Arthur Hills Golf Course.

The lighthouse is free to the public to visit. Sorry, the inside tower is closed and no longer accessible to the public to go up. Passes are not given after 5 p.m. and motorcycles are not allowed in Palmetto Dunes. Since the lighthouse is located on private property in a golf course environment, please be courteous to golfers and residents.
