Island

Nestled on the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, GA, and Jacksonville, FL, lies the mainland city of Brunswick and its four beautiful barrier islands off of Georgia: St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island. The Golden Isles offers a rich and storied history: Spanish explorers seeking gold originally descended upon the territory more than 400 years ago, only to find golden islands rather than gold. Astonishing beauty, mild weather, and a natural radiance inspired the area’s name, the Golden Isles. Untouched stretches of marshland, punctuated by small islands known as hammocks, define the breathtaking landscape and create the appearance of a continuous stretch of land reaching out to the barrier islands off of Georgia. Sparkling rivers teeming with birds, fish, and other marine life flow calmly around these golden islands on their way to the Atlantic Ocean.Known for its pristine beaches, the Golden Isles is full of natural and historical attractions and interesting guided tours to fill your days.

The coast of Georgia is roughly 110 miles and includes 15 barrier islands, four of which (Jekyll, St. Simons, Sea and Tybee) are accessible by car and have become popular resort destinations. The rest of Georgia's islands require transportation by boat and are virtually unspoiled natural escapes.Sea Island has seven unique dining venues, ranging from upscale cuisine to beachfront snacks (be sure to ask about the pickles). Even adults love the Gold Brick Sundae from Wonderland, the Sea Island sweet shop. For unique dining, visit the kitchen at the Georgian Room for the Chef’s Table Experience. Once the island retreat for the Carnegies, the largely undeveloped Cumberland Island is only accessible by ferry from St. Marys. Plan a luxurious stay at the Greyfield Inn, a day-trip to explore the Dungeness Ruins or a Cumberland Island National Seashore Camping trip for the ultimate Georgia beach adventure.
