With over 900 single-family homes, homebuyers have plenty of real estate options that present a display of views from freshwater lagoons and manicured golf courses to saltwater estuaries and the dunes, beaches, and waters of the Atlantic Ocean and Port Royal Sound.

Port Royal’s history stretches back centuries, to an age when Native Americans found these shores perfect for hunting and fishing. When Captain William Hilton bestowed the name “Hilton Head” to our island, it was in reference to the vast headlands in present-day Port Royal Plantation. 

It was here that the Union Army made camp, in a small self-sustained town centered around what is now called Robber’s Row. Several decades later, as the Spanish-American war brought the threat of a maritime invasion, the army built a massive steam cannon in Port Royal. The remains of this magnificent weapon can still be seen today.
