Golden Isles of the Georgia Coast

    St. Simons, Jekyll, Sapelo, Cumberland, and Sea Island - so named 300 years ago by the first European visitors to our 100 mile coast. These barrier islands are still golden is the eyes of locals and visitors alike...with their treasures of natural beauty and coastal wildlife, endless salt marsh and meandering tidal creeks.
    Sapelo and Cumberland, accessible only by boat or plane, maintain a landscape once common to all the islands, with wide sandy beaches, protective dunes and thick maritime forests, as unique and enchanting as any other forest in the United States.

  • :: St. Simons Island

    From the pier on the island's south end, to the golf courses and marinas west and north of the island, St. Simons Island is a family style vacation destination that appeals to all ages. The gentle island ambiance is characterized by sunlit moss-draped oaks that line many of the streets and the soft winds blowing fresh from the sea. Enjoy the diverse shopping areas, the delightful range of restaurants, and all the outdoor sports found around water - kayaking, swimming, sailing, fishing...all so close at hand.

  • :: Sapelo Island

    Touring Sapelo with Cornelia Bailey, a lifelong resident, the past comes alive in no uncertain terms. She will show you the largest shell midden found in North America, and Bourbon Fields where newly plowed earth is sprinkled with hundreds of Indian pottery shards. Most of Sapelo Island is now owned by the state of Georgia, but about 1% of the island still belongs to the residents of Hog Hammock, descendents of slaves who worked the island's plantations 200 years ago. They cling to a unique way of life that has all but disappeared. >> "I Am Sapelo"
