St. Andrews Picnic Area
St. Andrews Picnic Area is located at the end of South Beachview Drive on Jekyll Island. Overlooking Jekyll Sound on the riverside of the island and the farthest point on Jekyll Island’s beach from Clam Creek Picnic Area, this park provides beach access and is a short walk from Jekyll Point (the southern-most point on the island). This section of beach is very popular for birding, shelling and provides frequent dolphin sightings as they feed along the currents at Jekyll Point.
This park offers picnic areas, grills, a walking path, a wildlife viewing platform, restrooms and public beach access. In addition to being a park, St. Andrews Picnic Area is also a historic site and home to The Wanderer Memorial. This memorial is dedicated to the roughly 400 enslaved Africans who were illegally imported upon the Wanderer to the United States in one of the most sensational and controversial moments in Jekyll Island history.
