Beaches & Piers
The beaches of the Golden Isles welcome you to an exhilarating landscape of sea, sun and fun. Stroll along the endless sand, wade in the water and splash in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. Golden Isles beaches feature the ever-popular East Beach on St. Simons Island, the prehistoric Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island, the unspoiled seven-mile beach of Little St. Simons Island and many more beaches to be discovered. Jekyll Island and St. Simons Islands' beaches are public, while the beaches on Little St. Simons Island and Sea Island are for private guests only.

If you need a break from the sand, walk along one of our ocean or riverside piers like the St. Simons Island pier or the Jekyll Island pier, both great ocean fishing piers. Take a look at the Golden Isles' St. Simons Island Pier Webcam to get a glimpse of the area's unbeatable landscape and current weather. Piers are the perfect place to go fishing, crabbing, or simply to take in the scenery. Regardless of how you choose to enjoy the beaches and piers of the Golden Isles, enjoying the beauty of these fabled shores provide wonderful memories to last for years.
Several public beaches provide accessibility for those with physical disabilities. A large mat pathway is available at the U.S. Coast Guard Station beach on St. Simons Island, and at Great Dunes Park (crossover #32) and Beach Village (crossover #38) on Jekyll Island. Please be aware that the mats may not always reach hard-packed sand due to the variation of tides throughout each day. St. Andrews Beach on Jekyll Island features an accessibility ramp. Beach-going wheelchairs are available on Jekyll Island, and can be reserved by calling 912-635-2368.
