Find Solitude and Tranquility in the Golden Isles

Getting outdoors and away from the crowds to experience the best of our natural habitat isn't new for our Golden Isles locals and visitors alike. Georgia only has about 90 miles of coastline, but holds approximately one-third of the entire Atlantic seaboard's marshland, meaning the Golden Isles has ample and diverse habitats for birds and marine life alike, and is a major migratory stop for wildlife. Large areas of old growth maritime forests on the islands create tree canopies for habitat and make for an absolutely unique and beautiful setting unlike any other on the east coast. These distinctive settings throughout St. Simons IslandSea IslandJekyll IslandLittle St. Simons Island, and Brunswick provide habitats for a wide variety of Georgia's wildlife that you won't want to miss on your next visit. Learn more about nature and wildlife on our special slice of the Georgia coast, and get outdoors in some of our favorite ways:
