The Original Oceanfront Off-Plantation Neighborhood
Folly Field, one of Hilton Head’s original neighborhoods, was developed before there was a bridge to the mainland. The original beach cottages were built in the early 1950s so as to attract more visitors to the thinly populated, yet quickly developing, Hilton Head. Folly Field real estate became the heart of a neighborhood for the locals---the business owners and their families. The beach was pristine and development was sparse. Building standards were stringent then (as now), and new residents and out-of-town owners appreciated the laid-back and quiet streets---it was about nature and quality of life. Folly Field, though now nearly fully developed after all these years, is still one of the most beautiful beaches on the entire island.

Homes and condos in this neighborhood are a casual and diverse mix of charming beach cottages, oceanfront mansions and rental condos. One of the Island’s few ungated communities, Folly Field is an eclectic neighborhood offering a mix of old and new, mod and old-fashioned. It is an Island gem. While plenty of locals still reside in Folly Field, it has grown over the years to include a fair number of non-resident owners who wish not to rent their homes short-term, but who prefer to spend the off-seasons here.
A short drive (or bike ride) will take you to the Island’s mid-point at Palmetto Dunes Resort and Shelter Cove, and on further to the popular south-end—Sea Pines Resort, Coligny Plaza, Forest Beach. North end purveyors include popular restaurants, boutiques, Hilton Head Island schools, Hilton Head Airport and our hospital and doctors’ complex.
