Forest Beach is Hilton Head Island’s original beach community and is one of the island’s non-gated residential areas.
History of Forest Beach Homes
It was because of its beautiful beaches that Forest Beach was selected as one of the first areas of the island to be developed in the early 1960s. Homes that were built during this time became the model for the famed "Hilton Head Design" architecture, a bungalow-style home with a low-pitched roof, natural paint themes and exterior features that blended with nature. During the redevelopment period of the 1990s and early 2000s, many of these homes were purchased and torn down to make room for larger, high income-producing properties. Today, there is a quaint mix of the old and the new, creating a unique atmosphere---and a wonderfully close-knit community of long-time residents.
