Your Coastal Georgia Dream Escape

Nestled on the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, GA, and Jacksonville, FL, lie four beautiful barrier islands—St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island—and their mainland port city of Brunswick

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. 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, decadent Southern coastal cuisine and interesting guided tours to fill your days.

With its unique landscapes and plentiful wildlife that beckon visitors to return for generations, it's no wonder Travel + Leisure readers voted the Golden Isles the #1 World's Best Islands in the Continental U.S.
