South Dunes Picnic Area


The South Dunes Picnic Area is located on the ocean side of Jekyll Island along S. Beachview Drive. Separated by up to 20 foot high sand dunes which protect this area from coastal winds, you can walk along elevated boardwalks to access Jekyll Island’s beach. This park offers picnic tables and grills as well as open-air and screened-in picnic pavilions that can accommodate small and large groups (reservations have priority). Other features you will find include public restrooms, dog bag stations, an observation deck, and a freshwater pond known to have an alligator or two. For group reservations please call 912-635-3400 in advance.
