More on Forest Beach Homes For Sale

Many of the island’s largest and most luxurious homes and villas are located in Forest Beach, all within a beautiful, panoramic, quiet, non-gated residential neighborhood. Forest Beach homes for sale and villas are either on the ocean or are just a short walk to it. A mix of homes (from bungalows to sprawling mansions and private gated compounds) right on the beach and condominiums in this prime location have kept Forest Beach on the “A” List for buyers and vacationers for decades.

Forest Beach homes (North Forest Beach and South Forest Beach) are among Hilton Head Island’s most sought after addresses. Embracing the Atlantic shoreline, these oceanfront properties run parallel to the beach, offering panoramic views of the Island's most pristine shoreline.

Quick Forest Beach Facts:

  • Homes behind the oceanfront properties are considered second row, third row, and so forth.
  • North and South Forest Beach Drives also run parallel, with homes on non-oceanside as well.
  • 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. 

Forest Beach Vacation Homes

Due to the large influx of tourists, the real estate market of Forest Beach and Hilton Head Island are flourishing.
