I've been vacationing on Hilton Head for 30 Years and have always enjoyed the beach and bicycling but I'm hearing that the cops are writing tickets for drinking on the beach.
I was always respectful and discrete with my drink on the beach but if I'm going to be harassed by the cops I think I will give Tybee Island a serious look for my next vacation.

If you've been coming here for 30 years you know it's illegal. I believe you are trying to cause trouble like Obama did last week, police bashing. Go, please go you will notice a big difference. It's nice in it's own way but I prefer Hilton Head.

I would like to see the police shoot people that drink in public. Time to grow up or take what comes out of it!!!!

I've been there for the past 4 years. I see the signs but have never had any problems. Some of the locals are starting to raise a little hell with the tourist about drinking and smoking. The place I usually stay has video cameras in the trees at the play ground park. There was a man that approach my group of guest and tried to ruin our fun in the 1st hour we were on the Island. Greenwood Forrest area to be exact. What a moron this gut was. He needs to get a life. We were just riding our bicycles minding our business with smiles on our faces. The local SOB is miserable and wants to ruin our fun because we had the company of the 4 of us. This pecker head just had that stupid dog that was sorry enough to be his only friend in the world.

This is a stupid move. There will be people drinking on the beach, if Hilton Head Island does not want tourists then by all means write the tickets, but to stop your own revenue growth, go ahead, they will just take their money elsewhere!

What's the big deal if you are an adult and want to have a couple of beers on the beach. As long as you clean up after yourself and put it in cups it who cares.

You can drink beer on Tybee Beach. You can not bring dogs, glass containers or litter. They are serious about that and yes they patrol the beach on ATV's. You need to contain cigarett butts, trash etc. Makes sense doesn't it?

This year one officer in particular has really stepped up the ticket writing on HH Beach. He is on a 4 wheeler and will scout for anything that looks like a beer can. He isn't targeting people who are loud or obnoxious or underrage. He is targeting anyone who has a beer, even if you are sitting in a beach chair reading a book and not saying a word. Very bad rep for the island which can use all of the visitors they can get in this economy.

I come to Hilton Head Island two times a year for 1-2 weeks each time and I've always drank beer on the beach. I wrap the cans up in a t-shirt and don't make a big scene, but I've never had any problems whatsoever.

for topless. We need a nude beach on HHI. Would solve the drinking issue. No where to hide the bottle.

People are so mean, I wonder if they would also be that way in person. Guess it's just a cyber thing. Anyway, to drink or not to drink? It is what it is.
